Is YOUR Canvas Stretching
FREEDOM comes not from “How do I do?”
Rather from “How do I get it done?”
Hi there Freedom Nation United:
As is my custom, I was sitting with my morning beverage today going through my morning pre-game ritual, as outlined in the post Exercise – Envision – Read – Meditate – Pray – Empower .
(Yes, I do consider every day to be a present in the game of life)
I was thinking about what messages I have received that would benefit you, the reader of this Blog Post.
I thought of the teachings of Wallace Wattles in his book ‘The Science Of Getting Rich’. About how he asserts that “in order to receive his own when it shall come to him, man must be active, ant this activity can only consist in more than filling his present place” i.e. that we must OUTGROW OUR TENT.
Funny how it always seems to work that way. Co-incidence? I don’t think so 🙂
So, Are you sitting comfortably?
Is YOUR Canvas Stretching?
What did he say?
I believe that one of the questions I must pose to myself EVERY day is
To what extent am I outgrowing my tent?
How about you?
Are you outgrowing your tent.
May-be you, dear reader, are asking the more basic question:
What is “outgrowing your tent” anyway?
I see it as being when you grow so much as a person that you feel ‘held back’ by your personal environment.
By the people you associate with. By the things you feed your mind. By the actions you choose to take (or not to take). By recognizing some of the self-imposed limitations of your belief system about yourself. etc.
It’s like when a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly.
Are you with me so far?
Let me offer some examples from experiences in my life:
When I coached Youth Soccer at the Club level I benefited from the efforts of coaches Don Courtney and Bill DeMarco who taught soccer and developed players from the “B”-team so well that the players finally outgrew their tent.
For my part, my role as the “A”-team coach was to develop club players so they outgrow their tent to compete at the district level or in the Olympic Development program.
I also watched from the sidelines as High School Girl soccer players like Stephanie Fravel outgrew their tents and competed on boys teams.
In the World Of Music:
Did not Elvis outgrow his tent?
Did not Sting outgrow his “Police” tent?
Did not each of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison outgrow the “Beatles” tent?
Has not Madonna outgrown enough tents for the Red Cross to put her on their “most-wanted” list?
In the World of Professional Sports:
Did not their development into Global Brand “superstars” at Manchester United cause David Beckham, and, later, Christiano Ronaldo to outgrow their tent?
In the World of Business:
Did not Art Williams and his team of 84, mostly High School Coaches, outgrow their tent? Their friends, families and associates must have considered them crazy when they took on the World’s largest industry. When they, instead, represented and educated middle income America to help them wealth with their “buy term, invest the difference” crusade.
What about Muhammed Ali? What about Martin Luther King?
I humbly submit the truth of the Resurrection as another example of Christ the mortal outgrowing the limitations of the tent of his human body.
And the list goes on…
For myself, I pray that I have tents yet to grow out of and into.
Is outgrowing your tent comfortable? HELL NO! Is it natural? HELL YES!
How about you, my friend,
Can you feel YOUR canvas stretching?
But don’t just take it from me…
You can tell Infinite Intelligence – The Beatles, Madonna, Christiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Elvis, and Art Williams sent you!
For myself, I hope that today’s post has, in some way, encouraged you – Dear Reader – to look into ways to outgrow YOUR tent. To stretch beyond the fabric of the environment that has limited you to a ‘comfort zone’ of its choosing. You are, should YOU choose to accept it, destined for greater things!
