Time For An Upgrade

Time For An Upgrade

 

Recently I had a problem with a specific function on my iphone. I went to my local phone store in search of help. A very tall, slender, outspoken young costumer service representative smiled and began showing me several ways to overcome the problem. He also showed me how to avoid other problems and lots of other task my phone could and would complete without difficulty. His smile increased as he showed me functions I will probably never use. On the way home I found myself looking at my iphone with new respect and admiration. Suddenly I realized how this entire experience was a metaphor for my life. A very small, limited view of my mind, body and the world I live in keeps me much smaller than I need to be. Instead of shopping in my inner world, I shop in the outer world for things that I have the inner resources to do myself. What if I were to commit to more inner resource exploration and learning? I suspect most of us have vastly underestimated our possible life, as well as our gifts talents and skills. You know something has gone wrong when you find yourself respecting and admiring an iphone more than yourself. Maybe I don’t need a phone upgrade. Maybe I just need to upgrade my self-assessment and commit to learning how to better use my skills, gifts talents and treasure. ~Bob Luckin © 12 September 2013
