Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes – Yeshaiyahu bar Amotz (AMPLIFIED)
Last week we began to share about Breaking Traditions and Limitations. As a continuation I would like us to look at going beyond the limitations and setting new frontiers in our lives. This week I would like to encourage somebody who has not been making progress. You have been going round in circles. Lots of motion no progress? Lots of investment no return? You have been in that job for far too long? They probably have already given you an asset number. Your business can’t go beyond a certain revenue threshold? Your finances never seem to break even? Let this be your season to break out and breakthrough.
Your comfort zone, has now become a zone of lack of progress? I want to encourage someone who is doing well, but is operating below full capacity. You can do better and you know it. As you break with traditions and limitations this is a time to go beyond the boundaries of fear, inadequacy, education, geography and any other challenges. Yes you can!
I would like to share some laws that are important to help you extend your boundaries.
Law of Dreams
Dreams are the seedlings of reality. In a moment of inspiration I took some pictures of acorns (seeds) from a giant oak at Johannesburg Country Club last week. In that seed lays the possibility of the biggest oak tree in the world. So it is with dreams…something so big might be hidden in your dreams. A dream is a glimpse into the future. When you dream you take a peek into the future. To dream is a foretaste of what can be. If you are going to be dreaming you might as well dream big.
Law of Seed
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them – Albert Einstein
You cannot plant lemons and expect to reap oranges. The Law of Seed means that what you sow is what you reap. In order to extend your boundaries you need to start sowing a different kind of seed than what you you have been doing. You need to sow of your time, money, prayer, energy etc in order to go to the next level. Your seed will take you to the next level.
But how can I be a billionaire if I don’t have billions to sow? Good question. This law works in conjunction with the Law of Multiplication. A forest started as a seed which multiplied over time. You can start today to sow seeds to get you to the next level.
Law of Thoughts
Empires of the future are empires of the mind – Winston Churchill
As a man thinketh, so is he. You cannot extend your boundaries, beyond your belief system. You are a product of everything your mind has imbibed. Your life moves in the direction of your most dominant thoughts. Thoughts, habits and circumstances exist in a continuum where the one leads to the other. Thoughts turn into habits, which will in turn solidify into circumstances. To change or manage your circumstances of your life you need to change your thoughts. Think possibilities, health, success and soon you will become a product of your thoughts.
Law of Images
What you continually see you eventually become. This is the secret behind television advertising. They repeatedly show adverts on TV in order to create an affinity in your mind. You need to surround yourself with images of possibility. If you want a particular car, make it a screen saver on your computer or cell phone. If you want a nice house, put up pictures of nice houses around you. Set the context of your life. Images of what you wish for will inspire you.
This is a season to go to a new level. Change your operating system of thought and beliefs as you seek to upgrade your life and those around you.
