“The only thing that can limit you is yourself”


 The remarkable line, Mr. Ray Barbier told me from our last chat at facebook.
There are really lot of opportunities knocking on our way. It’s really up to us if we will accept it or decline it. I guess that only way that can stop you from reaching what you want is you, yourself.

For me there are following reasons why we limit ourselves from reaching the peak of our dreams and goals.

We have questions and ifs on our mind. We think overhead and assume that we can’t do it. We are drive from our                               fear that stops us from reaching what we wanted.

I must admit, sometimes I am drive by my fear. Especially I’m still a college student trying to learn new things and     still developing my crop as a writer. I used to have what ifs on my mind. What if I’m not really going to be a journalist someday? What if I’ll not make it? There are lots of what ifs.

But I always bear in mind, if I’m going to let this fear eats my entire system, then what would be my future?

And I was also reminded that the Lord is the only one that should be feared. And I agree, If God is with me, I should not fear

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom – Proverbs 111:10


People often thought that a life without rejections is pretty cool. But hey, you’re wrong. How can you learn, if you have not experienced being rejected. Like what they say, successful individuals are those who have suffered from serious rejection, but have continued to survive and work hard.

You can’t just say that wearing stiletto is pretty difficult that it hurts your feet badly, if you did not experience wearing one. Sometimes you have to experience the most painful and hurtful situations in life just to make you better.
The greatest lessons in life came from our failures. Failure to forgive, failure to seize the time, failure to become faithful with your husband or wife, failure to study well, failure to raise your child well, and failure to grow

There are really lot of failures, but in the end, it does not matter. What matters is the lesson that you have gotten from those and how you have applied it from your life.
Because at the end, past is just your past. Do not live by your past. Start living what is today. Appreciate what you have, because sometimes you realized the importance of it when it’s finally gone.

So don’t limit yourself! Have the trust in your capabilities, because if you won’t, then who else? There will really come a time that you’ll feel hopeless, and rejected. Those feelings are all normal, but you have to learn when to let go that feeling and continue living and trusting yourself.

At the end, just be the best that you can be!

God bless everyone 🙂
