do you believe that there is a limit on human potential? Or do you believe that we can always continue to evolve and face any challenge. Is it possible to run faster than the fastest time ever ran, is it possible to lift heavier things than the heaviest thing ever lifted? What is our limit?

the only thing that i can say is: "It is not how many hours you put it, but how much you put into the hours."

Exactly. We never stop learning if we stay motivated in doing so.

I think the only limit we have is the capacity to think of the possibilities. As long as we believe we can outdo the records, we can. What our mind can think, our body can achieve.

Exactly. There are no limits as long as you are willing to do and learn more.

I believe that every human being has its own potential, and that differs from person to person. But everybody has a limit, which cannot be crossed, no matter how hard we try. I think the best examples are the sportsmen, who train a lot and after they reach a certain level, they cannot progress anymore and after a while the downfall begins. What is the highest level for somebody, can be the lowest or the middle level for other, because we are not the same. But after a human reaches his own top limit, he can do whatever he wants, he cannot cross it. As for my limit, I cannot tell, because there are many fields in my life, but when it is about a certain activity, I usually know what is the most I can achieve.

I do not think there is a limit to anyone's potential. You can learn more every day if you are willing to.
