Limit and desire
June 24, 2012 1:18pm CST
Why, one of the ardent desire of each man is to have what one knows is forbidden, what he can not? For the satisfaction of achieving that is the sweetest thing? Is it because we always test the limits? Of course, you already know the answers to each of you. Most times, a person ambitious enough always get what he wants. But what we want is not always what we need?

“The grass on the other side is always greener and people normally think that if something is forbidden it is wonderful. An ambitious person would try and get what he wants but if he feels that it is not what he needed then it means that he did not really know what he wanted. As adults if we want something we try and get it and then there is no point feeling that it was not what we needed. We knowingly make choices and it would be mature to feel that what happened is God’s will and it is better to make one’s peace with it or try and rectify a deed as much as possible.

Sometimes, I know what I want but find out later that what I wanted was not what I needed. I know I'm not alone in this either. I'll have not a problem if it is God's will. The trouble is many a lovely choice is what we think we might want is not God's will at all but ours. Right now I am thinking all that gold just sitting lonely in the gold bank might be nice to have but the security guard has other ideas.

I think most people want to achieve what is either forbidden or very difficult to achieve out of ambition to prove themselves and the others that nothing can sit in their way if they really set their minds of reaching a goal,no matter how obstacles lie in their way,but usually the satisfaction they get when they finally reach their target isn't as intense as the efforts they made to achieve it,so they can't stop:they want to reach new heights,but the higher they get,the bigger the danger of falling is,so it's better sometimes to limit our ambitions up to a certain point and know when to stop and be pleased with our achievements until that moment.
