Is there a limit to oneâ€™s capability ? – K Sin
(part of the reader’s suggested topic)
LOL, this is like some motivational guru question. But fear not, hampalang questions also I can tembak (shoot) wan.
First, let me introduce this super informative website by this groovy looking guy name Dave Taylor. I am in love with him already! He knows everything! And I mean everything. From the Holy Bible to the green, yellow, red wires in your electronic stuffs. But mostly because his tutorial is super easy to understand and I managed to hack into my phpBB code and did what I wanted purrfectly. If you think WP files and stylesheet are confusing, wait till you see phpBB folders and files. I had that forum for three years and never dare to even touch the phpBB forum files but with Dave, *looking with dreamy eyes like those ‘You’ve seen on TV’ ads selling some magic products* , but with Dave, I can do it! Yeah! (claps please)
So, back to the question – is there a limit to one’s capability? No. Definitely not. One can go as far as one wants or stay and gather moss. No money, no education, no limbs, no complete brain, all are not excuses.
For a parent – It is important that we give that kind of confidence to our kids. But not to the extend of pushing them. Whether it is from the first time a baby learns to crawl or venturing out into the world. Sadly, most children nowadays are pushed and not given their own space to grow, fall and gain that confidence.

Ok, ok, back to the topic. I believe if a person puts his/her mind into doing something, the person should be able to achieve it. The only limit is when the person has no confidence of their ownself. Of course, one has to be realistic and take things step-by-step. And not forgetting that there are more important things in life than achievements. Family time, peace of heart, God, time to love etc etc. He/she has to sacrifice a bit, learn a lot and never back-stab, side-step to achieve whatever he/she wants. And don’t get conned by LamB Burger lah! Dei, I sound like Confucius pulak. LOL
Oh ya, last Sunday, John, a mental and physical disadvantaged 20 yrs old guy asked me to find him a computer. John looks worse than any of those people who walks from table to table to ask for money. He cannot take care of himself that well because he lived alone and does not have total control of all his body functions. He needs time to compose his words and push it out of his mouth (and you have to watch out that his saliva does not spray all over you, he can’t help it). He has to arrange his steps to walk and that is also not in a straight line. He was educated well in the Spastic Children Centre and knows English. If John has the desire to improve himself, there is no reason why others cannot do it. (all those links about John leads to other pages, do read if you have the time)
Aptly, the Gospel of John from the Bible , John 3:16 popped into my mind. BELIEVE. If you place your trust in God, all things will come to you. Jesus’s words (2 Corinthians 12:9): “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Makes a lot of sense to me. Unlike the saying, An empty vessel makes most noise, I like to see myself as an empty vessel that has a lot of space for Godly stuffs. Amen!
