The things we can (or can’t) do are rarely a reflection of actual abilities, but rather a reflection of our beliefs in said abilities.
There is no box. There are no limits. Impossible is nothing.
But it’s well to remember from time to time that all cliches become so because they are painfully true.
Thus, the trick is to revel in the posibility of reaching a certain level of mastery, the highest level of performance in any given field.
The idea is not to become the best, but to always become better.
