Boundaries have come to be utilised as tools for marking territories and enabling restrictions in the discussion of a subject-matter for, the purpose of clarity as well as precision. Such definite set limits, which are synonymous to scope, pave way for better comprehension of what is before one and serve as a check for encroachment or digression. Also, the primacy of boundaries or limits in moral matters is seen in its integral constitution of the behavioral standards instituted to guide human actions. It is noteworthy that the improper deployment of limits in contexts where unsuitable can spell doom therein. So, in as much as our finiteness as humans suggests certain limitations ingrained in us, extending this to the manifestation of our potentials as women is a step in the wrong direction. And it is the goal of this discussion to underline that the fundamental limit to exhausting your capabilities as a woman is you and call for an appropriate orientation to be imbibed.
The effectiveness of voices within and without such as “You cannot do it” or “Maybe you’re not good enough; excellence is not just for you” on your life is dependent on whether you agree or disagree with it. Basically, you are the chief executive officer (CEO) of your life and whatever stays in it or goes is up to you. In some parts of the world, women are viewed as embodying inborn limits that surpasses those in men due to either religious or cultural factors, which justifies why they are better placed in always playing second fiddle. Actually such limits can be overcome by the determined woman but limitations nurtured within by oneself is deadlier than the former and can impede your victory. Henry Ford, the pioneer of Ford Motors, once said “If you say you can or can’t, either way you are right.” This expresses the central role your convictions as a woman play in blazing trails, realising your dreams, and surpassing expectations. It is a mild way of saying—you are your only limit.
One of the commonest ways a woman can limit herself is through her thoughts. This comprises perception of yourself, evaluation of your capacity to do something, and the quality of your thinking on a regular basis. The plethora of potentials in you, arms you with what it takes to accomplish whatever you devise in your mind. You are the only one who can limit your greatness! A situation where women make a habit of seeing themselves as valueless, powerless, and clueless is very ominous. The materialisation of such thinking in lives which harbor it to a great extent is bound to follow. The Law of Attraction in the universe which holds that “Like attracts like” supports the assertion. Bestseller author Norman Vincent Peale advised the practice of “Creative Anticipation” where you frequently think of achieving your dreams and being a difference-maker. It tends to draw you closer to your dreams.
Finally, man-made limits set by you or society is breakable, once you, have an understanding of the enormity of prospects which abound in you. Regardless of what has been said or what people say now, always bear in mind that what you say significantly matters more and impacts your life, because “If you can think it, you can do it” like Walt Disney affirmed.
