Limitations Can Launch Us

Limitations Can Launch Us

      What are our limitations? How do we handle them? When life gives us a set back, what do we do? Watching Oscar Pistorius a.k.a. the “Blade Runner “in the Olympics gave us an example as to handle how to handle our limitations.

Limitations Can Launch Us

       Pistorius gave us a lesson to remember. Due to a birth defect Pistorius had both of his legs amputated when he was an infant. However, his focus was never on what he was unable to do but rather on what he was capable of doing. He moved beyond his limitations. Perhaps his limitations became his motivation.

       After many years of hard work and dedicated training, Pistorius finally made the Olympic team for his country of south Africa. The world watched in amazement as he ran the 400 meters and the 4 x 400 team relay. Always with a beaming smile and a positive attitude Pistorius showed a how to achieve despite perceived limitations.

        We all have weaknesses and fears. We all have our own “handicaps” and limitations. The question isn’t whether we have them; rather, the question is how are we going to handle them. As long as we optimistically look forward, set our goals high, and are willing to work hard, we can turn any limitation into success. Perhaps our limitations can even launch our success.

      Don’t ever give up on your dreams. Whatever our limitations are, let’s face them and use them to launch us to successes beyond our self-imposed boundaries. Many thanks for two Oscar Pistorius for being a shining example that anything is possible..

Without limitations,




  1. Limitations? What limitations? Here’s an inspiring article.

    This just leads me directly to our two “twice exceptional” children…I need to come up with another descriptive….Can it not be the case that those who think differently can leads all with creative solutions to be old problems?
