Who has set your limits?

Probably your limits have been set by one or more of the following:
Your friends;
Your parents;
Your teachers;
You classmates;
Your spouse (husband/wife).
Your colleagues;
Your associate(s);
Your rival/opponent;
Someone or people unknown to you.
The books you read;
The films you watch;
Politicians, etc.

Are they the right ones to set your limits for you? Who should set your limits for you?

You should be the one to set your limits for yourself not another person. However, it is advisable to listen to others especially those who are out to encourage you to set high limits for yourself. But pay no attention to anyone who tries to belittle your dreams; who tells you it can’t be done. The truth is if God makes a dream burn in your heart, it can be done.

Thus, you should set your limits yourself; and set them high, if not very high.

Kindly let me know what you think..

  1. This is very good and extremely important advice. I often set very high expectation so I can produce great work. It is stressful to have to work to near perfection but what are we if we don’t strive to constantly challenge ourselves to improve more? Thank you for sharing that advice with everyone!

  2. Indeed mr Romanus.I have been living in this mistake of others determining my limits but today I thank you ernomously for letting me know am the only one to set my limits.

  3. I especially like this: “The truth is if God makes a dream burn in your heart, it can be done.”
    So right: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we ask or imagine…” (Ephesians 3:20)
    On the more pragmatic side:
    God’s opinion comes first; then mine; then others’.
    As one with an observable disability, I
    have learned to take great care in who the others are. It is far too easy for people to limit me, since they have no idea about how I will go about accomplishing a goal. I have almost always surprised them.
