Throughout the month of August the Thrilling Thursday posts are all about thinking differently. Last week I wrote about thinking outside the box. For our purposes today, the box is the way people normally look at something, strict rules for how to do things, how to think about things. This week I am writing about thinking as if there was no box.
How would you behave if your life was not defined by other people, by what you did yesterday? What would your life be like if you could be anything, do anything and there was nothing limiting the future for you, but you? Does that possibility sound exciting or frightening?
If you get rid of the box, then the possibility to dream exists and you are able to do what you want. Pick a dream any dream. Now if there was nothing to stop you, figure out how you would get from where you are today to your dream. Remember, there is no box, there is nothing standing between you and your dream. Just go for it. Everything is possible now that you are thinking as if there is no box at all.

To go from here to the dream the only thing in your way is determination and hard work. When you act as if there is no box, you create the design you want your life to take. Get up and move. All the thinking in the world does not get you out of the box. No matter how much thinking you do, you cannot turn the box into a circle or make it the triangle you would like it to be. If you want to change the shape of your life and dream, you must act, you must do something. So, the question for you this Thrilling Thursday is what would you do if there was no box?
