How to Remove Limitations

A+ A-
No one likes to feel like they don't have control over their situation. However, many people find themselves in a position where someone else or their environment controls what they can do. This is a frustrating place to be; however, it doesn't have to be that way.

There is always a way out regardless of the situation you're in. In fact, they are often multiple avenues of escape.

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
So, what keeps people in bondage?

The Bible say in Hosea that "my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge". Whether it's a cycle of poverty, addiction, bad relationships, poor health, or anything else that is holding people in bondage, the answer is in knowledge.

The Power of References
From Wikipedia,
"In general, a reference is something that refers to or designates something else, or acts as a connection or a link between two things". References can be from experience, conversations, lectures, books, television, or anywhere you get your information. This is one of the reasons that it is so important to be careful what you watch or listen to. These references provide the data that we use to make decisions.

Our mind really does operate on the principle of Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO). Personally, I would like to change the meaning to Good In, Good Out. Part of improving your decisions, thus your options is limiting the garbage that you allow to come into your heart. For example, no one does drugs until they know they exist and where to get them. They have a reference that drug use is possible.

By the same token, the opposite is true. The more good knowledge that someone can acquire, the more references they have to model good behavior. If someone is raised in poverty, they may be completely unaware of the power of time and money. Consider the Latte Factor, just $5 a day can make anyone a millionaire. When you become aware that something is possible, then its just a matter of learning how to make it work for you. Increasing your references gives you options. No matter what you're facing, you're in a better position if you have more references to use in your decisions.

How Do You Acquire References?
There are numerous ways to acquire references. Here are a few:
  • Personal Experience
  • Other People
  • Media (Books, TV, Newspapers, etc.)

Thus, if you want to remove limitations, add more references. By doing more, meeting more people, and reading more books, you will have more options than you ever imagined.
