3 Things Limiting Man In Life – SirPhren



Just looking back at the things I couldn’t do, or become, I realized some things were obscuring me. But I know not what they were. Not only that, I was not aware of them at all and no one did tell me. I thought I was doing fine.

Some people are like that. If you are not doing fine in whatever you commit yourself to doing, something is wrong. You are somehow limited. If you have been doing so fine before and suddenly you are not, something is missing. What then is missing?

Recently I begin to question myself. Why didn’t I do this? Why didn’t I act that way? And so on. But then I came across three things that were limiting man. Better still, that I have been limited by and I was ignorant of.

The 3 things limiting man are;

Knowledge in his mind.
The worst case is when you don’t know something and you don’t know that you don’t know. Knowledge in man’s mind deals with what he knows. It is uncommon for one to succeed in what one doesn’t know.

Someone said, “I know am intelligent because I know that I know nothing.”
One seems to act around and on what one knows. But, when one thinks he knows much already, he is probably trapped by intelligence trap.

It is a tragedy when one is surrounded by people who doesn’t know what they don’t know. To put simply, one can’t go beyond his knowledge. And I encourage you (my reader) to strive to update your knowledge in that field you so desire. Try to know more!

Character also limit man in that it can help shape his life.

Your character is the way you think, feel, and behave. It is the symbol your life carries. It is what portrays you. It’s simple, if you want to be great, start thinking, feeling and behaving like the greats. “The greats,” maybe in anything you so desire. Do it in your unique ways. The better your character, the farther you go in life.

Principles upon which man build his life.
What are principles? It is a basic truth or theory: an idea that forms the basis of something.
What are your principles? Are they good ones? What do you believe in? what are your beliefs?

Usually, the environment we grew up determines our beliefs. It is now your duty as a father, mother, and as a good citizen to help young ones believe the right things and to instill into them good stuffs. The fact is, your beliefs will determine – to some extent, how far you will go in life.

If you believe you are not good enough, you’ll end up not being good enough. If you believe you’ll fail at something, you’ll end up being a failure.

And if you believe you can win, you’ll end up be a winner.

I hope you base your beliefs on something great.

One more thing that limits man is, caring too much about opinions of others. Care less about what others think of you. And don’t stop doing anything or refrain from doing anything because of what you think others are thinking. You know why? No one is actually thinking.

What Makes The GREAT Great?



Yeah, what makes the great great? You have seen their glories and you should read their stories. What makes the great great is a book written by Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D. I didn’t know about the book till I got to a bookshop In Lagos. Then I went in search of the 50th law of power by Robert Greene and 50cent. I couldn’t lay my hands on it and I asked the book seller to give me any nice book and he did give me What Makes The Great Great. I was glad he did.

“If you want to be great and successful, you must walk hand-in-hand with great and successful people.” Nido Qubein

The book tells of the stories of great men and women, how they were able able to stand out among the crowd and made names for themselves. The author introduces inspiring people who have achieved greatness in their own unique ways, then highlights the qualities each of us must develop before we reach our full potential.

Regardless of your definition of success, the book provides approach of turning your dream to reality. Greatness is guaranteed when you discover life’s true calling, live more courageously, access knowledge and creativity of your mind and embrace integrity in everything you do.

We all have seeds of greatness in us, what makes the great great provides the tools to discover and nourish those seeds.

Dennis P. Kimbro asked some great men and women the question, What makes the great great? See some of their responses below:

When Bill Pinkney [the first African-American to sail solo around the world and the forty-first man to do so] was asked what makes the great great, his response was; “Don’t wait! Now is the time to fulfil your destiny. We must act with courage; look forward with hope; and view life through a lens that defines what can be done rather than what cannot be done. If you are willing to work and never, never quit, you can make your dream come true.” What does this message mean to you?

Percy Sutton said, “If you have but one wish let it be for an idea.”

Robert E. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television said, “Life is a grindstone, But whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends upon what you are made of. And Rev Jesse Jackson added, “You may not be responsible for being knocked down, but you are certainly responsible for getting back up.”

What makes the great great

Henry Park of Park Sausage said, “In one hand I have a dream and in the other I have an obstacle. Tell me, which one grabs your attention?”

When Reverend Ike was asked what makes the great great, he said, “Do what I have done. “Open up a can! The world belongs to those who say I can.”

Mae Jemison, America’s first black female astronaut, when was asked what makes the great great said, “Greatness can be captured in a lifestyle. Life is God’s gift to you, style is what you make of it.”

Quincy Jones said, “Greatness occurs when your children loves you, when your critics respects you, and when you have peace of mind.”

Cornel West, an author and a professor said, “If you want to be great, you must serve willingly and love greatly.”

Oseola McCarty said, “Do as much as you can for as many as you can.”

And according to my observation, the greats are the people who understands what it means to simplify. They are the people who face one thing, face one passion and give in their best and do not believe in being jack of all trades. They are the people with determination and unshaken focus to do what they put before them. They are the people who have desires that burn. They are the people who say I will do this and never give up until they do. – SirPhren

Do you want to be great in that field you have chosen? Now you have just read about the opinions of some of the great men and women who have lived before us. Some of what they said is still valid and it will be nice to practice them.

There is only one thing that can stop you from being great. Do you want to know? Only you can stop you.

Robert Browning said, “When a man’s fight begins within himself, he is worth something.” And Bhagavad-Gita concluded, “A man’s own self is his friend, a man’s own self is his foe.”

If you really want to get your life together, this is one of the books you should probably read.

Which of these answers to what makes the Great great your favorite? Do you also know of other qualities of the Greats? Do share with me in the comment below.
