Inside the box
TITLE: Inside the Box br brThis work of art was inspired by a personal encounter. br brMany times we think of starting a new thing, business or whatever waiting and sourcing for big capital , We frequently try to think outside the box just because we hear people use the phrase, but doing so can leave us disappointed when we don get the outcomes we were hoping for. br brWe frequently consider starting something new while sourcing for large amounts of capital, not realising that we already have what we need to launch what we actually want to accomplish within our current box though it might not be everything we want to start with. br brIt is often about what we HAVE and NEED, not necessarily about what we WANT. There may not be enough resources, which is a restriction. We must accept our limitations since, for better or worse, we are trapped with them—at least for the time being. br brOne more thing: until we start making do with what we have, our present box will never grow to fit our dreams. Do you have to start sewing in your room before you have the money for a space? Or do you need to purchase the materials on your own with what little money you have? What matters is what we NEED to have not what we WANT to have. br brWhy don’t we think of our limitations as the Five loaves of bread and two fishes that God is ready to bless. Stop waiting for what you want and start with what you have.
