First you crawled then you learned to walk and the world grew bigger.
Then you rode a bike, drove a car, bought a plane ticket.
Suddenly the horizons were limitless.
Then doubts crept in…
“I can’t do that” and your world shrinks a little.
“I shouldn’t take that trip.”
“I won’t find my way around.”
“I have too many responsibilities. “
And it shrinks a little more, until you’re sitting in a little box with the lid tightly fixed.
No experience, no lessons, no life.
Boxes can be comfortable, but no matter how cosy you make it, it’s still a box.
They come in all shapes and sizes.
When we let unrealistic fears hold us back, we can be fairly certain we’re climbing inside another box.
Find one small “ I can’t ….” and take the lid off the box.
Stick your head out and look around.
See what you can achieve in 2016.
