“There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination and wonder.” Ronald Regan.
I agree with the quote above. Do you? But when it comes to evaluating the ‘push it to the limit’ approach to life there are limits we need to respect. The bumper stickers, quotes and people who declare there are “NO LIMITS” are false. When others encourage you to push it to the limit, or promote a no limits mindset test it with these questions;
1. Do I understand what limits are being addressed?
2. Is it a perceived limit?
3. Is it an artificial limit that is keeping me down?
4. Am I willing to test my artificial or perceived limits?
5. What limits in life need to be respected ?
6. What’s the difference between exceeding apparent limits and crossing all limits?
7. What situations might call for an intentional limiting of my involvement with others?
“I was there when he set the clouds above, when he established springs deep in the earth. I was there when he set the limits of the seas,so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. And when he marked off the earth’s foundations, I was the architect at his side.
