how healthy is it to just accept our limitations and not challenge ourselves? is it true that we have limitations? or do u, too, believe that we can achieve anything with patience, hard work and perseverance?

  1. wonders says:

    i think it is up to the person to set their own limitations. as they say: if you believe you can do it, you can. if you believe you cannot do it, then you are right.

  2. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    wonders: what bout ppl who keep telling themselves they cant coz they’re afraid even if they have all the potential of succeeding? shud they just let it go without trying and just tell themselves they cant?

  3. Simply ME says:

    I believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. If you want something so badly then you’ll eventually get it.. there’s nothing that’s called limitations! I once met this woman who is a big believer in the positive energy and its effect in our lives.. she told me if you want something so badly then keep imagining that you have it.. that it’s yours!!

  4. Adoosh says:

    Except for those of nature, there are no limitations to what one can do..Simply learn how to do it, believe you can do it, then try and try till you actually do it!
    We put limitations by telling ourselves sth like noway I can do so and so, even without giving it a try!

  5. Khouloud says:

    I personally believe that I can achieve anything I set my mind to, except drive a little less crappy. I used to believe that if there’s a will there’s a way and if you want something so very much you’ll get it, just like Simply Me, but it turns out it doesn’t work like that!

  6. eshda3wa says:

    i really do believe the sky is the limit!

  7. Qwaider قويدر says:

    when you’re young, sky is the limit
    Once you are faced with reality of the world, the truth sets in and you know that there are things that can never be achieved!

    We all have limitations, every single one of us. And once the inflated egos our parents place on us about how we can be anything we want. Once these egos pop! We know the sad reality that there is no such a thing as achieving anything you want and only the very lucky few, ever achieve these. So the best policy is to be content with what we have!

  8. Batoul A. says:

    I personally set goals that sometimes I’m not sure I can do because I believe we are made to challenge our minds bas kaman y3nee bl 3a2el. Goals have to be reached step by step, going above and beyond could be a risk that shouldnt be taken.

  9. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    Dima: i believe so too! and i SO believe in the power of positive thinking and imagining things yet not only day dreaming, but working hard to acheive that vision til u actually make it come to life..

  10. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    adoosh: exactly! i think we r the only ppl who limit ourselves.. and its sad.. i think a lot of potential and innate strength is wasted and lost in the process..

  11. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    khouloud: lol we r women sweets, we have an obligation towards society to actually keep our driving crappy to keep providing material for crappy jokes!

    and yes Dima made it sound really simple, but we have to work not just believe.. but faith is a big part of everything..

  12. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    Qwaider: oooh that was negative!

    i believe the more u know urself the more u know ur capabilities, but sometimes we put ourselves down for no scientifically proven reason! i am all for trying and trying even if u fail, if practice makes perfect, perseverance gets u places!

  13. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    batoul: noone said goals were to be acheived in the blink of an eye, but a lot of ppl give up so easily, they miss out on the time to harvest the deeds and effort they sowed.. and thats a waste..

  14. Marvin the Martian says:

    I think it’s important to try new things, and to learn from failures, and to keep trying. But I think it’s more important to do what you do well, and to take pride in your work.

    In your case, only YOU are holding you back. 😉 Stop that! You can do anything you want to. Free your mind.

  15. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    marv: me??

  16. Tiger says:

    well lets c simple equation with no complicated calculation

    the size of ur dream should equal exactly the size of your determination and your sacrifice level to do what u want to do..

    examples: a dreamer thinks i want to free palistine(legitmate dream)..the sacrifice is either ur freedom ou ur own soul…

    another dreamer I want to have 1$ billion of wealth(I prefer this one more realstic than the previous one) the sacrifice is also ur soul but this time u might loose ur ethics and soul to achieve it.

    a sinner who wants to repent and become a saint..well his sacrifice is his own entertaiment in the sins he is commiting…

    nothing is for free if u really want it even ur dreams and ur limitations is how much ur gonna pay for it..

    sorry for talkin too much (another example I started dreaming that am giving a speach from ur blog…the price was the audience got bored (and they really want to kill me now!!!))

  17. Vendetta says:

    I think one should know one self, acknowledge one’s capabilities and limitations and live with them. I think it’s both healthy and a source of peace of mind. However, self knowledge is not easily or promptly achieved, we must be tried and tested to discover our potential and our limitations. After much experience one realizes one cannot reach the stars..in the mean time one must keep trying 😉

  18. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    nimer: so many ppl’s dreams exceed their determination and so many ppl have so much force in them but donno where to direct it..

  19. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    pru: always sensible and well spoken, bless!

  20. Tiger says:


    the direction is reponsible on where u end up meaning if u really concentrated on ur dream with the required effort u would end up exactly on target. if ur direction is not tuned u would end up near or in half way according to ur effort(remmember once u paid u would end up with something but necessarly what u paid for)..
    but if ur not willing to pay sorry to say elee ma3hoosh ma yelzamhoosh

  21. Marvin the Martian says:

    We all write about what’s important to us. I think this topic is important to you. 😉

  22. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    tiger: i agree.

  23. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    marv: hmm, i tend to write out my observations and theories, not neccessarily what i can relate to.. sometimes i wud c ppl and wonder what their upbringing was like.. i love analyzing ppl i guess..

  24. Marvin the Martian says:

    You love analyzing people… that’s good, because that’s your chosen vocation, isn’t it? It’s good to like what you (want to) do. 😉

    I try not to analyze people except by their actions. If they try to explain why they’re doing something, I get frustrated, because their explanations seldom add up to what they are doing. But it is merely my failure to understand, not their failure to explain it properly. 😉 And I try to improve while still accepting my limitations.

  25. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    Marv: ironically, i am a junior analyst right now (equities research) and i have a 2nd degree in psychology so that makes being a psychologist/councelor the PERFECT job!

  26. Tiger says:


    I have some financial/economy investment related questions to ask
    if u can help I would appreciate it:)

  27. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    nimer, ask then =P

    apologies but my email aint for sharing 🙂

  28. Tiger says:

    pali: I was not asking for ur email!!!! I think u do analyze too much:P

    have u heard about nbad subordinated notes the 2 $ bn one?

  29. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    nimer: u mean the convertible bonds? what bout them 🙂

  30. Tiger says:

    from where to get them exactly..

    in the news they mentioned for instutional investors …6ayeb o e7naa ??

  31. Tiger says:

    by the way in the news they called them the notes or something like that

  32. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    nimer: debt notes are shorter term bonds, bonds are 3 years and above in tenur, a bill is a yearly bond, and a note is 1-3 years in tenur.

    and these r only institutional, lilasaf individuals cant buy em..

  33. Tiger says:

    some say gold metal

    some say just put it in the damen bank and shut up thank god that u have them…

  34. TOUCHE' says:

    It’s all in the head, just imagine what might the world would look like today if everyone started to restrain themselves with mental captivity.

    We are not bound to succeed all the time, but we have the right to keep trying out all possible ways to reach our goals. If we program ourselves into surrendering to deficiencies then we are actually letting our minds to go numb by doing things we automatically think we should do and by always taking the easy route which leads to nothing but constant expectations and mediocre results.

  35. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    nimer: yes sheklo! tayeb if ur patient, go for long term investments in real estate, just not emaar plz! aldar is a gr8 choice if ur in AD, which i believe u r. if u wanna make fast cash, go for telecom and islamic banks or islamic bonds (sukuk) best sukuk to invest in sometime this year wud be Ajman Bank, etisalat is the best telecom to invest in, and air arabia is doing well, will do even better giong forward.

    or iza bidak e7ki ma3 hermes, find a broker, go for a diversified investment scheme, and cash in by end of year!

  36. PŕōuđPāŀĩ says:

    touché: welcome to my blog 🙂

    i SO believe its all a state of mind, and i cud swear by self programming! we just underestimate the power of our subconscience..

  37. Tiger says:


    the problem with the securities market is not related to how good companies are doing..ya3nee for example NBAD , AL DAR , Air Arabia ,ARTEC, their shares should be in high high sky now but if u look at the fact they r less by far away than their actual share price should be especially on air arabia.. its all related to whats happening on US becoz internationally all companies are including Emaar and AL DAR are B classified so international funds would just think about them for short term plus the percenteg issue for foreigners makes playing more fun whenever they reach the up limit they just sell like hell and make the share drop and then buy again!!!

    I have been monitoring the market for almost like one year now and I even invested in a very good way for my dad on short term stuff that doubled our original investment cash.. I can go for buying a house but I am so frightend from it.. its risky more than shares and when u get stuck ur totally done its 1.5 million stuff!! and the mortagage ratio is still high ya3nee in US they reached 3.5- 3% but here it is still 7-8 % average so if u want to make investment out of this..simply thats called stupid.. and if u want to pay it and keep and rent it then again u have to pay like 3 million for a house that price originally 1.6 sa7ee7 enoo u paid 3 million over 20 years but common it is still 3 mills so when u sell it the right price should be lets say 3 million or 4 million for a used two bedroom appartment tell me who is insane enough to buy it with such amount especially that its not a historical site ..okay u might find someone (italians especially) who is doing money laundry ready to buy it from u at once but then u r so lucky to find (sometimes u need mafia for very good investments!!!!!!)

    personally I dont find putting money just in bank a wise idea I like to see my money rolling some where but where:smily faged:..

    regarding hermes am checking them out thanx for that
