I must have had an interesting dream last night, as I woke up with a question going through my mind: "If I had a life without limits, what would I do?"
I would run every day, train my body to the best of its ability. I would nourish it with the healthiest and tastiest foods. I would stimulate my mind, learn new things, and travel to new places as often as I could. I would enjoy the company of my friends, have romantic dinners with my wife, and play with my kids.
Instead of being a far-fetched, unreachable ideal, if I am honest, every single one of these aspirations is within my reach. I can run every day, I can train my body, I can nourish it, stimulate my mind, and enjoy my time with my loved ones.
The only thing standing in the way is... me.
I realized that I am already living a limitless life. The only difference is action. The only obstacle is my own inaction.
I feel like a caterpillar, which begins its life journey confined to a small branch, limited by its slow pace and unimpressive appearance.
But we all know how that story ends if the caterpillar survives and exerts the effort.
It undergoes a transformation, spreading its wings as a butterfly.
