“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” -Anais Nin
“True empowerment is only gained by making choices that stretch you.” Gary Zukav
Empowerment means taking responsibility for our lives. If our lives seem small compared to the grand visions we have/had for ourselves, it is not for lack of opportunity or possibilities… we are NEVER victims in our own life. Step up! This is your life, stretch yourself and own it.
“We do not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” Andre Gide
It’s that “very long time” part that trips us up. As we find the courage to pursue our visions for our life, we usually start off with grand momentum… but if it doesn’t come to fruition in our assumed time frame we start to slow down and often become the victims of circumstance. The moment we assume the role of victim, we retreat back to the shore and the discovery of new lands remains only but a dream. While occasionally we need to revamp our direction or the tweak the vision as new truths reveal themselves to us along the journey… we must stay the course! Your visions are uniquely yours and if you don’t manifest them, your world and my world will remain small and incomplete.
