“I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It's a way of life for me.” - Aryton Senna
When I started racing, I learned very quickly that true performance was not about the limitations of the car but the limitations of the driver. I purposely brought my underpowered Acura RSX Type S up for track days to learn my own limitations first. Many of the other drivers showed up in brand new Ferrari’s and 400 horsepower BMW’s. But it became very clear to me that driving a fast car fast wasn’t a feat, driving a slow car fast was. (This may have also been related to the fact that I was one of the few females - men and their machines 🙄)
We all have our limitations - physically and mentally. The beauty of life is to continually discover where those limitations are, then push on that boundary. It may be ever so slightly at first, but you have to feel along that edge. Find the line between comfort and uncertainty - tap on the other side of it, find your footing, then press a little further.
All true growth happens at this edge. And the best part is, the more you practice finding that edge and pushing past it, the easier it becomes. Then when you do own that Ferrari, or business, or dream job - you’ll have the foundation to fly even higher. 🔥🦋
Life by Design was born out of a need for my own self-healing after decades of unresolved illness. It wasn’t until finding the courage to look within that I discovered it was my own belief system holding me back from experiencing a truly thriving life. We all have access to that thriving life. We just need to rediscover our power and ignite the healing-self. Only then can we unapologetically live a life by our own design.
