Get past yourself

If you feel stuck, you’re probably too focused on yourself. Step back, let go, widen your awareness.

From a self-centered perspective, your problems can seem so massive as to be overwhelming. Expand your perspective, and the problems begin to look more like opportunities.

Surrounding you is a whole universe of possibilities, energy, resources, goodness and beauty. Turn your attention outward and vastly expand your options.

When you make everything about you, that limits you and keeps you frozen in place. It drains your energy and creates unnecessary conflict.

Choose instead to mentally step a little bit beyond yourself, beyond your own concerns. Discover how energizing and liberating it can be.

One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is to get past your concerns about yourself. Let go, focus your awareness on all of life, and replace those limited concerns with grand achievements.
