Had people followed the forbidding rules, our world would have missed on-
and the list goes on.
Of course ,there has to be some restrictions as an individual, that we got to limit ourselves to, for our own good.But these restrictions should not be a reason for not embarking upon a journey to great achievement, which might bring in change for good. For every breaking of rule or doing what we are stopped from, the world has come up with an innovation and a great leader to be aspired and admired. Every great personality has his own set of belief, but one thing that remains common to all is to do what they intuit. And, what they intuit is generally what they are forbidden from.
So, I believe, there are two categories of people- one, who are the afraid of going beyond the said limit, and other, are the achievers.
This reminds me of a beautiful quote which might be a bit relevant to what I discussed.
Here goes the quote-
“EVERYBODY IS A GENIUS. BUT IF YOU JUDGE A FISH BY ITS ABILITY TO CLIMB A TREE, IT WILL LIVE ITS WHOLE LIFE BELIEVING THAT IT IS STUPID” -Albert Einstein.
