What kind of credit limit do you have? By the way, were not talking about the monetary limits assigned to the credit cards you carry in your wallet or pocketbook. Unlike these credit cards which have specified limits on them, you have access to yet another source of credit which has no limits or restrictions whatsoever. Were talking about a personal account over which you exert total control.
You, and you alone, set the spending limits on this account. You are free to run up as much credit as your heart desires. In fact, the more credit you use on your account, the more credit made available to you. Best of all, you never have to pay it back. Never.
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, doesnt it? Could you handle this type of open ended credit line, where an inexhaustible supply of credit is readily available to you 24 hours a day? Sure you could, we all could and now we can.
The credit were talking about here is the credit we share with those around us. Former President Ronald Reagan once said, "There is no limit to what man can do or where he can go, if he doesn't mind who gets the credit".Winners have always known there is plenty of credit to go around, so they never feel the need to monopolize the spotlight. Instead, they much prefer to share the credit with those all around them.
You too should take time to share an idea or extend a compliment each and every day. Remember, a nice thank you for a job well done or a pat on the back when merited works wonders for children and adults alike. Be quick to share the credit with others. Shower those around you with praise. Give credit where credit is due and never forget to give yourself a little credit each day as well.
Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Never forget that there's no limit to what we can do or can accomplish when we are willing to share the credit.
