What could you do now if you weren't so convinced you couldn't?
The other day I gave my new puppy a large rawhide that he attempted to take through the doggie door but couldn't maneuver past with the unwieldy chew in his mouth. After several attempts he came back to me and dropped his precious prize on the floor. I opened the french door, calling for him to come outside, but he just stared at me. I walked over and re-handed him the treat, but he just dropped it and sat. Then it hit me: He didn't think he could make it through the big door with his treat because he'd just failed to make it through the doggie door!
Shaking my head at this silly puppy, I tossed the rawhide outside and he quickly ran out after it. I sat, watching him chomp down happily, and thought to myself how we can behave in the same way: that when we fail we quit trying, or we believe we can't do something, even when circumstances change and before us lies a door wide open, ready for us to pass through if we would but open our minds, too.
What could you do now if you didn't think you couldn't? If you let go of the past?
BTW, this puppy figures things out quickly and a few minutes later I saw him successfully navigate the doggie door with his extra large treat.
He forgot, he forgot he couldn’t do it, and so he did it...
NOW IS A NEW DAY: BE NEW WITH IT.
