Far too many of us amble aimlessly through life with limiting "blinders" covering our eyes. Our sure, we can usually see whatever falls directly in front of us, but these self imposed blinders severely impair our peripheral vision. As a result, we miss a lot of great times and lose a lot of great opportunities simply because we fail to see them.
We are so caught up in the daily hustle and bustle, dealing with assorted problems and putting out fires, that we routinely fail to witness firsthand the best life has to offer. These blinders restrict our imagination and limit our creativity. These blinders diminish our vision and dampen our hopes for the future. These blinders permit us to only see scarcity, uncertainty and trouble. It is time to rip off the blinders and toss them aside once and for all. You should replace them with a wide angle lens which opens up your world, allowing you to see the big picture.
This wide angle approach will unveil a whole new ball game to you, where there is plenty for everyone who participates. The wide angle approach to life will substitute a bountiful, panoramic perspective in place of the scarcity mindset you once held. You will find this wide angle approach will really open things up for you, providing you more opportunity in a day than you previously perceived in a year.
This great country offers each of us unparalleled opportunities for growth, wealth and prosperity. We can do, have and be anything we have ever imagined. Yes, we can. In order for us to get our fair share of the good times life offers each of us, we simply need to know where to look. When we toss aside the blinders, we will be able to see and consequently seize more opportunity than we ever dreamed existed.
Now you see it
so go ahead and grab your piece of the pie.
