Soul & The Upper Limit Problem
This edition is going to be a shorter one because, at the moment of writing this draft, I am down with a 101 fever for nearly 11 hours now. And that too despite taking paracetamol!! I know, right! Even I am surprised! 😀
It reminds me how often we take things for granted when they are going well, especially when it comes to our physical health.
Anyway, here are my 2 quick recommendations this week:
I love this Pixar movie! I watched it again last weekend and it spoke me to in a different way than it did the first time.
Here is one quote that captured my attention:
“Lost souls are obsessed by something that disconnects them from life.”
I am intrigued how it says “obsessed” to talk about “disconnection”.
I wonder what could be a word to talk about “connection” in a similar sense?
(Hit reply if you got any ideas!)
The Upper Limit Problem
Everyone has an upper limit problem.
It refers to the idea that we have an inner thermostat or setting for success/happiness.
When we exceed that setting, we tend to unconsciously sabotage ourselves to come back to a comfortable temperature.
There is a book called The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks which talks in detail about this.
This Twitter thread summarizes key pointers from the book detailing why it happens & 4 steps you can take to overcome it.
Here is Mantra from the same book (bit corny yet powerful):
“I expand in abundance, success, and love every day, as I inspire those around me to do the same.
That is all from me this week!!
Until next time
