“The reason someone is a genius and knows things you do not know is because he has opened his mind to contemplate the “what if’s,” the outrageous thoughts, the thoughts of brilliance that go beyond the limited thinking of man. He has allowed himself to entertain and reason with these thoughts, whereas you have rejected them. It is very simple to be a genius. All you have to do is think for yourself.”
As 2011 begins to unfold, this would be the perfect time to take the advice in the above quotation to heart and start thinking for yourself, to start thinking bigger, greater, grander than you ever have before. To say “yes” more to what life is wanting to offer you. To dream new dreams and imagine more lofty ideals for your life.
I’d like to tell you a story here that may help you understand this idea of just thinking “bigger”. Several years ago I designed a website for my FREE, inspirational, self-help, print magazine. The site had over 300 pages on it filled with articles, interviews and a lot of really valuable content. At that time I also created a daily inspiration and daily kindness page where I included uplifting and inspiring stories and suggestions for possible acts of kindness. These pages were very popular with lots of visitors and some great feedback. I also provided a link where people could send in donations. During one particular month I was feeling very discouraged and even a little angry. I felt I was putting in a lot of effort with very little return. That month no one had donated anything at all. At the time, on this donation page, I offered specific amounts of money that people could choose to donate, along with various gifts for each price level. These suggested offerings ranged from $25.00 up to $100.00. So on this particular day, in a bit of a huff, I just thought to myself, “Well, if I am going to get nothing for this work, I might as well ask the Universe for bigger amounts of nothing.”
Don’t ask me where the logic was in that. I have no idea. It didn’t really make any sense at the time, and I can’t even believe now that I even thought that. However, I went ahead and changed the donation amounts to start at $50 and go right up to $500.00. To make a long story short, that very same day, I received my first $500.00 donation with two more to follow shortly thereafter. I can’t really explain it, since nothing else had changed, except to say that in that moment I started thinking bigger. And I don’t believe it mattered what the catalyst was to get me to do that. The end result was what mattered. I asked for more. I demanded more. I felt I really did deserve more and so, I was given more.
So I ask you today, where in your life, do you feel you deserve more and why aren’t you asking for it? And if it takes getting angry to get you to move out of your comfort zone, then go for it! Anger can catapult you to freedom and help motivate you into making more empowered choices that move you in a new and bigger direction.
