Bandler on Limitations

Excerpted from Using Your Brain for a Change, by  Richard Bandler:

Many people try something once, don’t succeed at it, and conclude they can’t do it and they can’t learn to do it. I know a man who “knew” he couldn’t play the piano: “I sat down at the piano and tried it once, but nothing came of it.” I start off with the belief that as long as you have most of your brain cells intact, anyone can do anything. You may need to chunk down the task, or learn to do it differently, and it may take you a while to get good at it, but starting with the belief that you can learn will take you a long way. My belief may even be wrong sometimes, but it makes it possible for me to do things and get results that I would never even consider if I assumed people were genetically incapable.
