Think Bigger, Better, More . . .

There are no limits. All of our limits are self-imposed even though it may often appear otherwise. What we overlook is that it is we who make the final decision about whether we buy into a limiting belief or not. Others may try to suggest or persuade us that it is in our best interests to harbor a particular belief, but most often it's only in the best interests of the person who is doing the persuading. They'd feel a lot better if we would do things the way everybody else is doing them.

"Perhaps, at this point, it would be a good idea to take a closer look at our collective reality and see how it got to be the way it is. When we were young children, we looked to those who were bigger than us to instruct us in the ways of life, and, because we were innocent, we trusted them to start us off on the right foot. In most cases they taught us as best they could, but only in rare instances did they teach us anything that was outside the standard, agreed-upon, status quo reality. In accordance with human nature, we merged our beliefs with theirs and began to go along with the crowd.

"As the years went by and we matured, we found that it was easiest for us to stay with the set of ideas we originally learned because these ideas were supported by almost everyone else around us. It seldom occurred to us to deviate from the mainstream, and yet, for a few people, a subtle voice inside whispered that they need not be supported by others in their thinking processes. These insightful people realized that they were free to believe as they chose, even if others didn't approve."

So, how about breaking out of the pack? We don't need the approval of others to think - and create - what we like. We can think "Bigger" and enhance our opportunities immensely; we can think "Better" and improve the quality of our lives beyond measure; we can think "More" and increase the flow of all good things coming to us. And we can start right now by taking a closer look at all of our limiting ideas and tossing them in the garbage with all the other things that we don't need anymore.

My Intention for today is:
I Intend that I am thinking Bigger, Better, More . . .
