What is the upper limit problem that is holding you back and keeping you from the next level? This is something I read about when I recently re-read The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks.

Take time this week to look at these barriers. Do any of them resonate with you? Start paying attention to your day to day interactions with yourself. What stories do you tell yourself?  They may feel real and true, but they are not.
