Keep discovering the newness in your life. There is so much more to life than we realize. I was recently exposed to an opportunity where I found myself immediately shutting down and leaning to what I had already been conditioned to, doubt and unbelief.
Fortunately I have been surrounding myself with people who help to expand my thinking, therefore it didn’t take me long to open my mind. Here is the thing, if we keep doing the same things we will keep getting the same results. We cannot expect different results doing the same thing. In order to get more we have be willing to become more.
My goal is to provide a different and better outcome for my lineage. I have to be the trendsetter. I am a leader by nature. I have great influence in my circles. That’s not bragging, that’s knowing and being confident in who I am. When you know who you are, you know who you are not. People hear what you say, but they do what they see you do.
I am becoming more and more aware of my tendency to “play it safe”. I read a quote by Shirley Hufstedler which says, “If you play it safe in life, you’ve decided that you don’t want to grow anymore”. For so long I didn’t realize how much I was limiting my growth and development, but not just my growth and development but my lineage as well. As leaders it is essential that we continue to grow, develop, and learn. Leadership has with it responsibility.
Unfortunately, in reality we are operating under limiting beliefs. We think we are open to new and creative ideas, but upon closer inspection our actions and our words reveal that we are stuck in cycle. We need a conscious interruption, but unless we know what we need we will not know to seek it. Once we begin to seek and desire more, the opportunity to receive and respond to the new information will present itself, we just have to stay open to properly align ourselves.
There is so much at stake. The future of our lineage is contingent upon us making moves and taking risks, however, use wisdom because risks look different for everyone. To quote Marianne Williamson, “our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure“. I owe it to God to be great! He created me with greatness in mind. He did not expect any of us to live beneath our means. When I say live beneath our means I am not just speaking of material things. I am also speaking of creativity, witty ideas, wealth creation ideas, wisdom, game changing moves. God created each of us to be this world’s answer. We are problem solvers. He didn’t create us to get along, he created us to take over!
Search yourself and your circle of influence and be honest with yourself regarding your growth and development. When was the last time you learned something new? When was the last time you took a risk of any kind? When was the last time you saw yourself living your dream life, even if you’re doing pretty good for yourself? If you can’t imagine it, you can’t obtain, because it is not just going to fall into your lap. I have learned not to be so impressed with myself that I settle for old victories. As rapid as technology is being enhanced is as rapid as I need to be about becoming a better version of who I was. Best and better are always available.
Thank you for coming along with me on this amazing journey of discovery. Life can be quite intimidating at times, this is for sure. The only way to know what we are capable of is if we give it a shot. We will miss one hundred percent of the shots we do not take!
Until next week, stay in peace. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. I appreciate it all.
