"Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger."
If you have ever stood high atop a mountaintop, basking in the scenic surroundings only nature can provide, you have experienced one of the greatest sensations known to man. With your head in the sky and the rest of the world at your feet, you feel like you can almost reach up and touch the heavens above. As the sun begins to set and the stunning, breathtakingly beautiful panorama wraps itself all around you, one thing quickly strikes home: the world is a pretty big place.
Way down below, far beneath the picturesque peaks that surround you, there is a great big world filled with all sorts of people, all sorts of places and all sorts of opportunity. More people, more places and more opportunity than you'll ever get to know, visit or see.
"Your big opportunity may be right where you are now."
No matter what you have done or accomplished in life, there will always be more out there for you to discover. Regardless of where you have gone or where you have ventured, there will always be new trails, new paths and new roads for you to explore. When it comes to opportunity, theres always more. A lot more of everything we want, a lot more of everything we need. But it's up to us to see it - and seize it. And sometimes we dont.
Far too often we act like a mountain climber who has reached the summit but now refuses to open his eyes. Instead of seeing the limitless potential all around us, we keep our eyes tightly clinched. And we never see what we can do, what we can accomplish, what we can contribute to the world.
"Every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation."
Instead of viewing the world in larger than life terms, where abundance and opportunity beckons all around us, we oftentimes see a world filled with scarcity, lack and doing without. Rather than looking past the seemingly insurmountable problems, difficulties and challenges we encounter and seeing the possibilities that lie ahead, we get stuck in the muck; doing little, accomplishing less and feeling lower than low.
Instead of making the most of our God given gifts, making every moment count, we spend far too much time taking care of little problems and putting out little fires; one little thing after another. After awhile, our world becomes smaller and more constricted. Net to mention a whole lot less exciting as well.
There's got to be something bigger, something better out there somewhere.
"Worry about being better; bigger will take care of itself."
Life was meant to be lived on a grand scale; in big, super extraordinary, larger than life terms. Where we dream super big dreams and do super big things. But if we're going to make our lives bigger, we've got to do better. That requires better effort, better focus and better follow through. And yes, better vision as well.
By opening ourselves up to the world all around us, constantly looking for ways to improve daily, we start seeing things we never saw before. Seemingly out of the blue, a bigger, better, more fulfilling life begins to magically unfold right before our eyes. A life filled with untapped opportunity, a life where anything is possible and nothing is beyond our reach. Its right there, right there in front of us.
We've just got to open our eyes. And dare to be bigger than life.
The Bottom Line: When you think big and act bolder - you're life will get better.
