Currently, I know a lot of people who don’t understand why they’re not further ahead than they are in life. The common denominator? All are working in silos – ideas, groups of people, etc. They’ve gotten so used to the way things are (and should be in their minds) and they aren’t open to anything different.
I can say this because I’ve been this person. I’ve shut down so many different opportunities all because I had already made a decision as to what it would be like. But once I became more open to entrepreneurship, networking and new point of views, the new possibilities rolled in and became new realities. And as embarrassing as it is to admit, I’m also more open to new people that I may have judged in the past. In order to make this shift though I had to get over the fear first.
“Our lack of openness comes from fear or fear of change.”
I know that change and everything that goes along with it can be uncomfortable, but try different things on for size and see what happens. I’ve had so many life-shifting experiences that forced me to be more open and at the same time created amazing opportunities – in both life and business. What if that one small (or big) leap changes your life, too?
So if you’re wishing for more abundance in your life, whether it’s money, happiness, memories or experiences, know that it comes down to this one powerful choice. And now’s as good a time as any to make it.
“Your break is on the other side of choosing to be open.”
