A Life Without Limits

I saw the movie Limitless a few days ago and it made me ask myself the question that the protégé asks himself in the movie… “How many of us ever know what it is to become the perfect version of ourselves?”

It makes me think if there was a pill out there that gave you limitless power would you take it regardless of the consequence, or should you depend on your own merit to make your life the best it can be?

At the end of the day, is the easy way always the wrong way to go?

When I’m driving to work and I see traffic in front of me, I quickly rack my brain to think of a quick way to avoid it. Like many other college students I read the cliff notes instead of the whole book and changed the font and margins of a paper to make it ten pages instead of six.

Now the movie deals with much heavier things like the main character writing novels, learning languages and eventually mastering the algorithms of the stock market – literally becoming a millionaire in a few days. But I found no issue with it because his mind was clear and he was the absolute best version of himself that he could be. Some of us need motivation to get off the couch and live our lives to the fullest. If it could all be bottled up in a little clear pill, I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one in line to get some.
