    Use of Tenses

    Dear teachers, I would like to know what the differences are in using simple present and simple present continuous in the following sentence:

    "You may limit/be limiting your success by thinking negatively."

    Thank you.

    "You may limit your success by thinking negatively." This means that if you think negatively, you may limit your success.
    "You may be limiting your success by thinking negatively." This means that you may be limiting your success because you are thinking negatively now.
