Chapter 5, Page 21, Book 17



With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

A life without limits

Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.

Mae Jamison

Too many people are living their lives according to what others think is best for them, they live their lives according to what their parents think is best for them, to what their friends, their enemies and their teachers, their government and the media think are best for them

Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.  The only limits in your life should be those that you set yourself.  Truth is that when you allow other people's words to stop you, they will.


I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations
and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.

Bruce Lee

Don’t let the opinions of others make you forget that you are not in this world to live up to the expectations of others, nor should you feel that others are here to live up to yours.  In fact, the more you approve of your own decisions in life, the less approval you need from everyone else.

You might feel unwanted and unworthy to one person, but you are priceless to another.  No matter how good you are to people, there will always be one negative person who criticizes you.   When you think of a life without limits you have a tendency to think that you can do anything.  Remember what works for others might not work for you.  


When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do. 

Charles M. Schwab

Yes, we do limit ourselves. Too bad many times we 'miss the boat' expecting a ticket from someone else.

So true we need to live our lives how we want and not always give in to what others would want us to do. We should though listen to the advice of others if they think we are potentially going down a wrong path.

I have a tendency to live my life according to others. So I found this true in my life, "Too many people are living their lives according to what others think is best for them. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice."
