Before long this can become the ‘norm’ reinforced by the inevitable challenge and disappointment that life throws at us. We will also have allies eager to agree and reinforce, thereby creating a larger cage now holding us and our friends.
If we’re content to live as a caged bird, relying on others to feed and protect us, and living according to someone else’s will then we can stop now. If, however, we’re keen to explore beyond the cage, to stretch our wings then we must change what we say – we must speak life: words that release us, words that expand our world, words that reinforce our potential.
This won’t present a challenge-free world – I can guarantee we will continue to face obstacles but we will also continue to be afforded opportunities. By reshaping our language, we can however remove our self-imposed limitations.
LET HOPE RISE
