I believe a bigger problem is with people who do not demand more of themselves! Most people are quick to quit when the going gets tough or adversity crosses their path.
A lot of people go to their graves without so much as trying to realize any of their dreams. I mentioned this in a recent hub.
Are there limitations? I was not aware. I accept limitations pushed on me, only to realize it was only a chimera ...
Many people know exactly what their limitations are. On the other hand, there are people who have few limitations, but the people around them (being of many limitations, themselves) often can't believe someone else isn't as hindered by the same kind of limitations that they are. As a result, the people who know what they're capable of, and don't have those same limitations, are faced with others thinking they don't know their limitations.
I once had a friend who was a mother, and she often talked about how she wanted her children to know their limitations, and "not have unrealistic expectations."
"How sad," I would think when she'd say that. Rather than encourage her children to try to overcome whatever limitations they ran into, this lady wanted to make good and sure her kids "knew" that they should never hope to achieve more than deemed they were able to achieve.
There's a certain talk radio host who frequently says how many people there are who will tell you that you can't do something, just because they, themselves, haven't been able to do it. This individual also frequently says, "Don't listen to those people who tell you you can't do something. Listen to the people who have done it themselves."
The world is full of people who have far, far, fewer limitations than a lot of the people around them tend to think they do.
Because they feel something new is possible.
Sometimes they are right,sometimes no.
Richard Brunson,CEO of Virgin Atlantic financed the built of Virgin Oceanic,the first submarine that will go to the bottom of Marian abyss,about 11 kilometers deep!!
He said that he likes to challenge himself and do things he didnt do before.
He is the one who can not accept own limitation.
There are other examples,brilliant and dark.
Dark example is belief of a man who stole 50 bil.$ and thought he will be always ahead of law.
Or the belief of col Gadhafi that he must stay forever as president of Libya.
He is not only not accepting his limitations and people revolution,but he is ready to kill all, including own people, who are not on his side.
I think that people who don't accept their own limitations are the people who are the astronauts, and the inventors, and the world leaders (not all of them or course).
The one thing that fascinates me about successful people is their ability to see beyond the limitations I might set for myself--they think the sky is the limit and often they make their dreams happen despite what others might call limitations.
We used to demand excellence. Now we are in the habit of demanding mediocrity--and that is usually all we get.
Sometimes it is good to go beyond our own limitation as to explore more. Admitting to our limitation will stop us from expanding beyond our ability to do what we have achieved in science. Look at those special effects in movies, we couldn't have succeeded if we accept it.
because no one truly knows what their limitations are. it's a good thing in my opinion because it causes us to try to become better all the time.
Many people know and abide by their limitations. The problem is the people who won't strive to push their limit; underachievers.
Because who wants to admit they have them? I hate the idea that I can't do things sometimes. But I think it is necessary to know your limits.
Limitation = Giving up or quitting before conquering that which is being attempted.
Perhaps the question should be, "why should people accept their own limitations?"
Make your own way, and make your own limitations. And always, always push them!
Man was created to overcome its limitations every day. However, it is often necessary to recognize them and give yourself time.
Some things take time to happen. No one should give to overcome their limitations, but must be patient until that happens.
Because they are smart enough to realize that they don't HAVE any limitations.
People who "accept" their limitations are the ones CREATING their limitations. They themselves are the only thing holding them back.

One of the common arguments I see is that because someone else did something, everybody else was able to do it as well.So, if one person was able to win the world championship for boxing, that means everybody can do it, and the only reason they can't is because they're lazy, stupid, and didn't want...
