Visiting Mom’s house and  came upon a book left behind by my brother by Joel Osteen. 

He wrote about how many times we human beings sell ourselves short. We settle for less than we’re worth on so many levels. It’s all-too easy to curl up in a ball and rock back and forth, lamenting about the things we could have done…or things we’ll probably never do.

Osteen wrote about a man who one day visited Maui. The man saw a beautiful home and mentioned that he’d never be able to enjoy living in such a place. With that mindset, he was definitely right. Or for the person who says…”I’ll never have a good relationship,” it will most likely be so.

We must enlarge our vision and go into action to make our dreams come true. It’s not about having a pricey home or numerous expensive toys…it is about open our eyes to the unlimited opportunities around us.

Osteen writes:

“You’ve been wallowing where you are long enough. It’s time to move on, to let go of past hurts, pains, or failures. It’s time to believe for bigger things. It’s time for increase, time for promotion, time for supernatural favor. But if that’s going to happen, you can’t keep going in circles, doing the same thing the same way year after year…the key to developing a fresh vision for your life is breaking the barriers of the past.”

In what areas of your life do you need to enlarge your vision? I dare you…me…us…to begin here :-D
