Being a human being with the passage of time, we’ve been known to the fact that in life there are limitations to many things. For instance, mankind itself is a limited concept. Someday we all have to die, it is a fact of course. Limitations are what define us up to an extent too. For instance, a soccer player has a limitation of ninety minutes in the field; and how he deals with those ninety minutes is what defines him as a player. Similarly, how we deal with different limitations in life decides who we are and certainly bring some changes in our personalities as well.
The question that arises here is that, whether or not should we give up in front of limitations? Should we bring our passions, our dreams, and our ambitions to limit? The answer is simple, a big NO! No, we don’t need to limit our ambitions, passions, and our dreams. We make simple things very complicated because we overthink and that’s what we are really good at, which eventually make simple things really complicated.
When limitation arises in life, we either back off for a certain period of time or we give up. Well that’s clearly not the way to do so. We need to learn how to mold ourselves according to time.
Bruce Lee once said, “Empty your mind, be formless – shapeless like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup, you put it in a bottle, it becomes a bottle, you put it in a teapot it becomes a teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.” Beautiful lines these are, telling us how to deal with problems. Basically in our lives our main problems are the limitations that we face. Limitations such as insufficient resources, limited amount of money, limited amount of knowledge at some point, and much more. Surrounded by these limitations, we forget one beautiful fact of our existing kind that is, man is the best of God’s creation and we are able to mold ourselves into such shapes that within the boundaries of limitations we can achieve everything we can dream of.
We desperately need to start thinking about the fact that limitations can’t stop us from achieving things. We need to start thinking that we are capable enough to deal with limitations, because we have the ability to adapt and live.
It’s really easy to maintain yourself accordingly with the situation exactly the way we deal with different weathers and seasons. Limitations are nothing more than small obstacles and just like we deal with every small obstacles in our life, we need to change our approach towards achieving our goals. Limitations do not mean that we stop going after what we love, but it merely inspires that the way we are trying to achieve things that are inappropriate or somewhat “out of track”.
We can easily go after what we want once we learn that limitations are not there to stop us but in fact motivate us to do anything for the things we are passionate about. Dealing with limitations in life can develop a sense of individuality as well amongst us, which gives out a positive impact for furthermore development of a person. Hence, limitations are just signs that show we are “out of track” rather than vicious monsters who are trying to stop us from achieving things that we want desperately.
