Limitations in life are just that, life. No one is born with every skill needed but we are all born with our own unique skills. Even those with a diversity of abilities and restrictions live in their own comfort zone, maybe with extra help but still live. We are all limited in some way, by how we think, how we act, what we know, where we are going in the future. If you want to surmount a limitation it takes effort, dedication and sacrifice. That may sound discouraging at the start, but with conscientiousness you will find ways around anything that appear to limit how you live. However, it’s in the process, the trying, failing, falling on your face but retrying and trying again that you find your success. Success is the gift you crave in the world to make the life you want. It’s likely not going to win you an Olympic medal, but it will fill your life with contentment, and fulfilment. One can only realize their personal limitations by constantly testing these limits. This is usually done by stepping out of your comfort zone. However when doing this, we often surprise ourselves that we are actually capable of a lot more than we assume. Ambition, achievement striving, and risk-taking are highly valued by our society, but they can come with a price. High achievers typically believe in setting themselves ambitious goals but how do you know when you are pushing things too far? If you are patient, you can get what you once started out wanting. Coming to terms with and accepting that you can’t get everything you want, can be difficult. It is also possible that you don’t want it badly enough to persevere. First of all stop comparing yourself with others and learn that everybody has different skills. There are other things which are far more important, that are easily developed, but people do not notice so readily and are so important. Maybe you are good at understanding people, maybe you are good at consoling people or maybe you are good at making friends and being there with a helping hand. There are lot of things you have but are not able to find because you are just trying to achieve what others do. Stop looking at others. Do what you want to do. And definitely you will find something that you are good at. Just give yourself some time and you will automatically figure it out. Most of us wish we could improve certain things about ourselves. Lasting change is difficult: Many of our habits are deeply ingrained, and certain core personality attributes may not be able to be changed. But even the oldest of habits and character traits can be altered to varying degrees, as it’s never too late to change; with effort and determination, it is possible to be the person you want to be.
Admiration and praise from others only boost one’s ego. For self-respect, you do not need admiration from others. As far as your potential is concerned, you need not compare yourself with others. Every individual has got a huge potential which remains untapped. These talents surface when you become stress-free and enthusiastic.
Remembering that not to have any special unique quality, is itself a unique quality.
