We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them. ~Albert Einstein
This is among my all-time favorite #quotes. I say it to myself several times each week. There’s a fundamental truth in it.
Whether we’re talking about the planet, a country, a company, or our personal lives; the way we thought yesterday probably won’t keep up with today. It certainly will not take us to the next level. If your goal is to get to the next level, whatever that means for you, your thinking must rise to meet the challenge.
What old, limiting thoughts do you need to release? What new ideas do you need to consider? What traps in your thinking have you fallen into in the past that you choose to side-step today?
So this morning’s #affirmation is:
I embrace better, higher thinking today than ever before. I consider ideas and possibilities I had never considered. I put my wisdom, my resources, and my effort into finding better solutions to life than I did yesterday.
Wherever you are on your journey today, keep your mind on your side.
To say that Oprah Winfrey has inspired millions, would be to understate the matter. She was America’s daily voice of personal exploration, growth, life’s journey for decades.
Even now, she continues to inspire Hope, purpose, and the search for meaning in life on her multiple platforms.
I love this Oprah quote. It contains so many nuggets for us. It counsels trying new and hard things. It prepares you for the inevitable setbacks in such attempts. It encourages determination and patience, it promises reward for your efforts.
Its power to inspire is enhanced because the words come from someone who created and lived that journey before all our eyes.
In a nutshell, this quote is the very embodiment of our journey to personal growth. We are here to do great things or “small things in great ways.,” as Dr. Martin Luther King said.
We will fave adversity, but if we don’t give up and give in, we will prevail in some meaningful way.
Wherever you are on your journey today, know you can. More than that, know if you don’t give up, you will.
Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.
I coined this quote a few years ago and I refer to it regularly. I find it balances me on both ends of the spectrum.
It reminds me that I can’t achieve everything today. That relieves the stress of unrealistic expectations for any single day. On the side, it reminds me that I’m on a long journey with many milestones, many opportunities to achieve anything I want to achieve. It gives ,e the confidence to know that I have the time and the space and the right to pick things up again tomorrow.
Ben Franklin famously said, “Small strokes fell great oaks.” This quote is that vein. Keep at it whatever goal your chasing. Make a little progress each day and soon you’ll be standing in the winners’ circle.
Wherever you are on your journey today, I believe in you.
