"We know what we are, but know not what we may be." - William Shakespeare
Have you ever surprised yourself in your abilities and the possibilities that come from new discoveries? I sometimes think we settle into the drone of "this is who I am" without stopping to think about what is possible? Whether it's a new hobby, or finishing "War and Peace" it is all there for the taking.
An example of this was at the gym. I wanted to see how many push-ups I could do. Before starting, my hands began to sweat. Fear took over my mind, which was going to limit my ability and possibility. I managed to push the demons out, and up and down I went. Surprising myself I pushed further than I thought I could. Ability and possibility were suitably matched. On the other hand, I tried a new exercise and could only manage two reps. However, that won't stop me. When I improve my ability, the possibilities are endless on many levels.
