Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good.

Higher vantage point

When it seems that all hope is lost, it is not lost at all. What’s really happening is that you are being compelled to move to a higher level.

Does it appear to you that there is no way forward? Raise your thinking and awareness to a higher perspective, and you’ll see plenty of possibilities.

Do you find your way blocked by insurmountable obstacles? Imagine rising above them and by so doing you can find a way around them.

When you find yourself stuck, you’ll need to go beyond thinking what you’ve always thought and doing what you’ve always done. It’s time to challenge your assumptions and open yourself to new growth.

Move beyond your comfortable, familiar perspective and take a fresh, objective look at life. From a new viewpoint, problems that once seemed daunting can shrink into insignificance, and positive possibilities will dramatically expand.

When your path seems hopelessly blocked, make the effort to climb to a higher vantage point. From there you’ll quickly see the way forward.
