Be Grateful

A gambler died. When he opened his eyes, he saw a majestic presence – an elderly man with a flowing beard, dressed in pure white robes. In a gentle voice, he said:

“Welcome, my son, to our Casino in the Clouds. Here you can gamble away to your heart’s content!”

Taken For Granted

My first thought upon waking up this morning was how much we take for granted.

The list goes on and on.

All of this leads to 2 points I want to make.

1. What if we woke up every morning feeling grateful for all the things we have – that until now, we have taken for granted?

2. What if, just once every YEAR, we thought about those who do not have the things we have taken for granted?

Or maybe once a month?

Or… daily?!

Hmm…

Setting Limits

Setting Limits

Often our brains are fired up by demands to “dream big”.

In principle, that’s fine. But setting limits has a place, too.

Let’s take the example of ‘making more money’. How much is good to aim for?

Some will say a few hundred dollars, some a few thousand, some a few million – and all will be critiqued by a few for not “dreaming big”.

Yet, when you dig deeper into the WHY, all these answers may be perfectly correct!

If all you NEED is a few extra bucks to tide over a problem or enhance your quality of life, without sacrificing all else, then that’s your right target. You don’t need ‘bigger’.

Maybe your existing commitments mandate little time available for other things.

Personally, my online work generates money to further a purpose… to fund complex and expensive operations for poor children with congenital heart disease.

If I devote most of my time to making money, I could achieve ‘big’ targets – but unless I have time and energy to perform surgery, that does NOT further my goal.

‘Big’ is big ENOUGH.

To fuel your ambition. To fire your dream. To live your purpose.

Set limits. Reach them. Push them out a bit further.

Rinse and repeat. Grow. Succeed.

And be happy as you do.

It begins by setting limits.
