Once again we have come to another blessed weekend and am very happy. Am not lazy anyway but you agree with me sometimes we must leave all this office stuff behind and have a good rest.
Are you supprised at our title today? Please don't be but let us consider one or two things. Our thoughts. Everything we do in this world comes from our thoughts. Its our thinking that we translate into our actions. How vast do you think? Have you set imaginary boundries for yourself in life? Sometimes it amazes me when I hear people say as for me, I can't do this or that, I can't win that job looking at the level of people I attended the interview with, I can't build a house of this kind etc. These are all imaginary boundries we have set ourselves and surely they have an effect on how far we can go.
Until you change your style of thinking, until you break those imaginary walls around your thinking, until you desire to move further than what you see as your own limit in life you are bound to be where you are. T.S. Eliot once said something that "Only those who risk going too far can possibly find how far one can go" and one Charles F. Kettering also said "It's amazing what ordinary people can do if they set out without preconceived notions" Look, imaginations is more important than knowledge. Yes because in this world if you don't know, you don't know. Knowledge is limited but imagination encircles the world. Think more than what you do now. Strive to go further. Its free. Refuse and break those Jericho walls you have around your thoughts and dreams.
As Pete Zafra said, "People who are afraid to fail can never experience the joys of success" and I agree with him. Put the fears away. They are stopping you. They are building a wall around your thoughts and dreams and also always remember that no matter how small, acknowledge the achievement because that is a source of motivation for you.
Have a blessed weekend and catch you soon.
