I once worked in an environment where hearing the word “no” was the norm. Whenever a new solution was presented, the answer was “no…we’ve already tried that…” or “that won’t work” or “we can’t do that”. That environment breeds complacency and sub-par work. When we focus on the problems and begin to accept them as normal, we miss opportunities to explore what can be.
Next time you’re facing a problem or obstacle, focus on the possibilities. How can the obstacle be overcome? How can the problem be corrected? Allow yourself to dream without limits. Dreaming is empowering and freeing. It allows you to move towards a life of fulfillment rather than emptiness. It’s time to thrive! What possibilities do you face?
