Where Are Your Limitations? - James Altucher

Limitations And Well-Being

The more you push at your limitations the more the world becomes your canvas. Art helps people see the world in a different way.

To make the world your canvas, try to think of people who you can help today. Then the world starts to shape itself according to your own limitations, instead of the other way around.

Exploring solitude

We tend to see solitude as grim and imprisoning.  But in fact, the exact opposite can be true.  Solitude can be seen as freeing, as an opportunity for exploration and growth.

You develop strengths you need

It’s always better to learn to stand on your own two legs.  And once you are self-sufficient, then relying on someone else from time to time is an act of strength, not weakness.

Take small, consistent steps in the right direction, day in and day out.

Comfortable being alone

Learning to be comfortable with being alone does not mean you can’t be in a relationship. It means that you will not be codependent and entitled.  

What we need is a healthy dose of self-sufficiency. The greatest gift you can give somebody is your own personal development.

More Success For Others Than For You
Everyone around you needs to become better than you.
Figure out how your employees, clients, and customers can be successful in what they are doing.
Constructive Criticism

Don't just say NO to something you don't like or want to change.

Say, 'Yes, and.." then provide constructive feedback on what is good and what can be improved.

Bob Ross's magical draw

The show was as meditative as it was instructive. Ross put out pure positivity into the world.

In every episode, Bob Ross explained his art as a way of capturing the eternal beauty of the world. When he filled his canvas with color, he'd say things like, "This piece of canvas is your world, and on here you can do anything that your heart desires." When he painted a cloud, he might say, "A cloud is one of the freest things in nature."
