My guru has an exercise he does with audiences when he meets with them:
“Everyone, I want you to raise your hand as high as you can. Okay, good. Now raise it a bit higher. A-ha! Interesting…”
Just when they thought that they had given their all, they hadn’t. And for the smart ones, this simple lesson resonates throughout their entire lives.
What would happen if the comforts and advantages that you take for granted disappeared? No more job, spouse/partner, house, checking account, supportive boss, or car. What would you do then? You’d surely wither up and die, right?
Wrong. So, so, so very wrong. You’d likely step up in ways that you never thought possible, to succeed in ways in which you never dreamed. And you’d persevere. And overcome. And accomplish.
And, if you were smart, you’d take a look at where you came from and what you did and say to yourself “wow, why didn’t I tap in to that part of me before?”
Your all is not your all. It’s a manifestation of what you mind thinks your all is.
What would you like to become today?
