No limits

We must be mindful not to place limits on greatness.  It is through one's ongoing vision and dreaming for the best that one can achieve great things.  In fact, the following quote says it all:

"You can't put a limit on anything.  The more you dream, the farther you get." 

                                                                                        -Michael Phelps
