One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big notice on the door on which it was written. “ yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away” we invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym.
In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while, they started getting curious to know who was the person who hindered the growth of his colleagues, the excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.
The more people reached the coffins, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought, who is this guy who was hindering my project? Well, at last, he died!
There was a mirror inside the coffins, everyone who looked inside it could see himself, there was also a sign next to the mirror that said, “ there is only one person who is capable to set a limit to your growth” it is you.
You are the only one that can defeat yourself, not even the devil can defeat you. However, only you can defeat you. You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization, and your success. Also, you are the only person who can help yourself. Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change; when your partner changes or when your company change.
However, your life changes when you change. When you make a good decision that can enhance your life. Also, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs when you realize that you are the only person responsible for your life. When you stop blaming people for your action when you stop blaming people for your pain.
Examine yourself, watch yourself, handle yourself well in front of others and start taking responsibility for yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities, and losses. Be a winner, build yourself and your reality. The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself.
It is not what happens to you, it is the way you choose to handle life that makes the difference. Don’t make permanent decisions in a temporary challenge. There is no mountain anywhere, your decision to issues of life determine your mountain. You are your own mountain and it is you that will determine whether the mountain will go or remain.
You are the way you are because of why you are, what people say is doing you is not what is doing you, but what you call it to be. You are what you choose to be and it is not what you are that holds you back, but what you choose to be. Moreover, you can not always control circumstances but you can always control yourself.
John Maxwell said, “many succeed momentarily by what they know, some succeed temporarily by what they have, few succeed permanently by what they are”. You are what you are because of the reason you are and your limitation is set only if you fail to conquer yourself. You are the only person capable to set a limit to yourself.
Dream not of deeds you will do someday, how you will soar to reach the sky, tomorrow’s but a dream unsure, today is here, set out and try what you have been hoping to be. Boast not of mountains you will climb, while you rock idly in your chair. Act now, take your first stride in faith. For dreaming will not take you there, only you can take yourself there.

Remember, “ there is only one person who is capable to set a limit to your growth” it is YOU.
