Transcending Limiting Thoughts and Beliefs…


One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice 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 that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!”


One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.


There was a mirror inside the coffin: 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 limits to your growth: it is you.  You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your success and your evolution on the spiritual path. You are the only person who can help yourself.”


Our life does not change when our boss changes, when our friends change, when our parents change, when our partner changes, when our company changes. Our life changes when we change, when we transcend our negative and limiting thoughts and beliefs, when we realize that we are the only one responsible for our life.


“The most important relationship we can have, is the one we have with ourselves.”


Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, challenges, impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality.  The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed. Strong, positively creative thoughts and actions, without any limitations of negative and restrictive preconceived ideas, concepts and notions, will reflect in positive results, irrespective of whatever field and station of life we are in.


The world and our reality are like mirrors laying in coffins, which show to any individual, the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success.


It’s the way we face life that makes the difference.


Our attitude determines the altitude we scale in life.
