Dear Abundance seekers and readers,
Welcome back! First things first I apologize for a two week delay in posting week 27 as I was tested positive for Covid 19. In my previous posts we spoke of knowing yourself and trusting yourself. This week I am beginning the “Grow Yourself” theme and what follows will be a series on this over the coming weeks.
Before we begin a gentle reminder to journal your practices in your diary and check your progress over the weeks.
” Grow Yourself “
Does this sound like something you can believe?
Growing means to seek out a better you. To want to change because you know there is more you’re capable of. Not because you feel obligated to meet others’ standards of excellence. You know there is a better you ahead of you. It’s just a matter of the steps to get there.
Growing is about making the choices necessary to get where you are to go. An apple seed feeds no one. An orchard feeds many. The difference is growth.
In reality you are constantly bombarded with stuff and hence the ability to discern is constantly at work. When you stop focusing on the small stuff, you can direct your attention on things that truly mean to you. In this series you shall explore techniques of moving out of the mundane and the art of making right choices. This week focus on your thinking and try to think out of the box. How?
How to Think Outside the Box
When you’re struggling to come up with fresh ideas, there are some simple tricks to help you step out of your comfort zone and think in an innovative way. Thinking outside the box starts well before we’re “boxed in” – that is, well before we confront a unique situation and start forcing it into a familiar “box” that we already know how to deal with. Or at least think we know how to deal with.
Thinking out of the box is challenging yourself out of your comfort zone. It helps in creating thoughts, action and deeds. Mind maps in by far the most effective strategy which enables out of the box thinking.
Try this this week and let me know.
happiness and sunshine
