"Don't let someone else create your world for you, for when they do, they will always make it too small....." Edwin Louis Cole
As adults we spend the first five years of our children’s lives teaching them how to walk and talk – and then we spend the next fifteen years telling them to keep quiet and sit down. There is a lot of truth in that bit of humour, because we always expect people around us to live their lives according to our expectations.
The programming of our minds starts at birth. People are told how to live life – what to do and what not to do according to the values (or lack of) of the people around them. Even worse, people are told what they are good at or what they will 'never be able to do' or 'be'.
The moment that they believe in their limitations, they allow others to create their world for them, and they spend their lives trying to live up to those beliefs.
I challenge you this term to be yourself, to identify your passions and live your own life.
Don’t allow others to think for you and create your world for you – they will always make it too small. Explore and develop your potential. Create the world you dream about.
Make it a great term!
