The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.

Beyond limitations

Don’t ignore your limitations. Understand them, learn from them, and you’ll find ways to get around them.

The force of gravity is a serious limitation when attempting to launch a rocket into orbit. Yet by precisely understanding how gravity works, scientists and engineers can build a rocket that will successfully reach outer space.

It’s tempting to just complain about your limitations, or see them as excuses for lowering your expectations. But you always have a better choice.

That choice is to learn, to understand, to innovate, to adapt. Within whatever is holding you back are very specific truths and strategies for moving forward.

Limitations abound with useful facts, some already known, others waiting to be discovered. As you learn and apply those facts, the limitations lose their power to limit you.

Look to your limitations for knowledge, strategies, and inspiration. And engage your miraculous ingenuity to get beyond whatever holds you back.

— Ralph Marston
