Your life will have less panic in it if you set internal limitations instead of battling external ones.
Spending less money than you make is setting an internal limitation that stops you from running against the defeating reality that you can’t afford something.
Choosing to go to bed early or check out of the party before others is setting a limitation that stops you from running into your own physical limitations.
Choosing to make art that’s within your capability instead of making the impossible thing you imagine stops you from feeling like you’ll never measure up to your dreams.
This isn’t weak. This is strength. Because running into external limitations happens when you lack self control. It might make you look strong in the moment to try as hard as you can. But consistently falling short can destroy your drive to achieve.
Putting limitations on yourself isn’t giving up or preventing yourself from shooting for the stars.
It’s making yourself strong enough to do so.
