I had an empowering conversation with a colleague last night. It was as if I was talking to myself~that’s the level on which we connected. I love how the universe aligns and links us to our kindred spirits, because it’s through those exchanges we reinforce how much we need each other.
One of my biggest takeaways was that we must NOT cater our actions and decision making to people who aren’t even investing into our progress. Why? Those individuals won’t ever change what they think about you. They will always see you as the entity they place into a box long ago. You can go and create a multimillion dollar empire that empowers your community and there will still be at least one person who attempts to remind you of who you were.
Fret not, my friends. This mindset has NOTHING to do with you. People who give out boxes, live in boxes. Their limited view of you mirrors the limited view they have of themselves. We see our world through our experiences, and therefore our vision is limited to that. Unless and until we choose to shift our thinking, our vision will be skewed and rooted in dysfunction.
Mindset expansion can be very scary, but it behooves you to engage in shifting the way you think, put your failures into perspective, and use the lessons learned to catapult you to the next level in life.
The only thing scarier than venturing into the unknown is living a life beneath your potential. It doesn’t matter what others say or think about you. The only thing that matters is who God says your are and what He thinks of you. He created you for greatness!!!
Be crazy enough to believe you CAN achieve your dreams!
