  • Excellent Podcast Dan Miller! I fall prey to Upper Level Limit on personal development study, taking on too much, making promises I don’t keep to myself and others!! Not good!!! I’m getting better though, thanks for sharing, you Rock!!!!

    • Rene – thanks so much. Recognizing where the Upper Limit shows up in our lives is the first step to raising it.

      • Dan – You’re helping me Raise the Bar in every area of life – Thank YOU.

  • This weekend I watched Grumpy Old Men. Jack Lemmon’s character finally wins the attention of a widowed beauty who had recently moved into the neighborhood. For a short time, he is happy and upbeat. Yet the very next night he misses their date. When she finally comes over, he tells her he thinks he is too old for him. His age something she had never mentioned. He then picks on something trite in her painting. They argue and she leaves. I immediately recongnized it as The Upper Limit Problem.
