The strength of the oppressor lies in the ignorance of the oppressed, and often such ignorance comes disguised as tradition.
Traditional mindsets (the type that limit us to think only in our immediate sphere) cripples talent, restrains growth, and perhaps chokes destiny.
Tradition may say mediocrity is okay — don’t stray from your roots; don’t reach beyond!
To get passed such a penalty, we must think ‘out of the box,’ beyond what we limit ourselves to be. We must never allow circumstance, age, education, physical, financial, or mental limitation to interfere with our dreams.
Dreamers are the most influential and satisfied people on earth, as they are closer to true fulfillment (purpose) than any other human group.
Dreamers say “why not,” while pessimist say “I can’t, so I won’t even try.”
Dreamers think ‘big’ — they have escaped their traditional mindset that says “you cannot, you will not.”
Dreamers are made in the image of their creator, who made them ultimately to ‘create’ (while on earth)…and they know it!
Creative people surpass productive people, who simply produce work, while those engaging the creative process release a synergistic energy that is highly productive (while in the process of creating).
Productivity is a by-product of creativity.
Creative people escape the ordinary, the limitations of surroundings, and venture beyond the familiar.
They take the road less traveled. They make a difference; not married to methods, but rather to a creative process that rest within them… they change the world!
“The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it,” Matthew 7;13-14.
