First let's face the fact there may be more than one limit definition depending on the space in which you operate. For example a limit of a function for a given element of domain where both domain and codomain have some measure you'll likely go with the $\epsilon - \delta$ definition while if you're talking about a limit of an infinite sequence you need to have the sequence definition. They are related but not exactly the same.
The quote you cite from this Wikipedia article that you're referring to uses some textual explanation to make it easier to grasp the idea of a limit but it is not exact in
mathematical terms. This is supposed to only make it easier to understand the idea.
Now if you wanted to somehow define the "approach" meaning you'd have to look at the definition of the limes. Regardless of the chosen definition you have (rephrased to a bit more common English):
$c$ is a $\lim$ of $f$ in (something - either an element in your domain or something that is next to your domain) if regardless how close you want to be to $c$ (by selecting an $\epsilon > 0$ you can define some conditions narrowing which element $x$ you are allowed to pick from your domain - close to where you want to be in your domain so that for any $x$ from your domain selected in that way it is true that you are as close to the $c$ as you wanted to be, i.e.
$|f(x) - c| < \epsilon$
This is not an actual quote, it's a generalization-rephrasing.
So still using a common English explanation if you get close in your domain to some $x_0$ you will be close to some $c$ in your codomain. If you are in $c$ already you are also very, very close.
Now there is nothing about approaching here, but in most cases most of your values even near your $x_0$ produce a value different than $c$ so using the term approach make it easier for the reader to understand. Yet if you're already in $c$ technically you don't approach it, but it doesn't invalidate the definition. So if you wan't to properly define approach you'd have to say you're either getting very close to the point or you are already there.
Note that your function may jump to $c$ sometimes and then get out of it. As long as you don't get away too far, you're still approaching $c$. But the common sense understanding of approach is different so you need to be careful not to confuse the precise mathematical and common sense meaning.
When trying to describe math in a common language, to make it understandable you use some simplification and loose actual math precision. You need to account that. Especially sources like Wikipedia should be treated with a grain of salt in such informal descriptions.
Terms written in script are not strict mathematical terms. Those terms are replaces with strict definitions/conditions but those definitions/conditions are sometimes difficult to grasp. I deliberately didn't want to use strict math terms.
