Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours.

Circles and Boundaries

Around every circle, a larger circle may be drawn. Around every fence, there is an open field that is waiting to be cultivated and harvested. Around every set of limitations, there is a limitless expanse of possibilities. Around every experience, there are larger and more meaningful experiences.

Beyond every horizon, there is a world of discovery. It is yours if only you will make it yours. A universe filled with abundance awaits you if you will just accept it.

When you are standing on the ground, the horizon is only a few miles away. On a mountaintop, the horizon expands to dozens of miles. In an airplane, the horizon can be hundreds of miles away. In a spacecraft orbiting the Earth, there are thousands of miles between the horizons. And when you leave Earth orbit, the horizon is infinite. Where is your mind’s horizon?

You can choose to bounce back and forth off the walls of your limitations, or you can choose to transcend those limitations and expand your horizons. You are only limited by the boundaries you place on yourself. Rise above your limitations, expand your thinking, and consider the possibilities.

— Ralph Marston
