Cultivate Your Child-like Thinking by Lisa Jimenez, M. Ed.
Psychologists say 68% of people miss out on opportunity simply because they are not awake to it. Did you read that clearly?
They are not awake. Most people are in a coma of routine, habit and schedule. They almost have to be. We over stimulate our calendar with so many tasks and errands that it becomes necessary to be in a robotic state of "doing" to ensure everything on the to-do list will get accomplished.
And now, the harassed style of thinking and living has become a habit ? a way of life. You can break through this negative behavior of living by making a conscious effort to become more childlike ? not childish ? but, childlike.
Find amazement with things again!
