In life, everyone can be a winner. There are unlimited possibilities and one person winning in the game of life does not diminish the chances of other people to be winners too. I was reminded of this at the Poison / Kiss concert last Tuesday. I had won tickets in a contest sponsored by the House of Blues (http://www.hob.com/). When I went to pick up my tickets, the woman at the ticket counter simply reached into a large stack of tickets, pulled out two and gave them to me. As I was picking up my tickets, a gentleman next to me was picking up tickets he won too. When we arrived at our assigned seats, I asked the people around me if they had won their tickets. A good many of them had. This bothered me for some reason. My husband noticed what I was doing and asked, “Does it diminish your win if they won too?” The answer was no, it didn’t. There were plenty of seats to go around and the truth was it actually enhanced the win by having other winners seated around me. We were all sharing our experience and enjoying being in the “the winners circle.” We heartily thank the House of Blues for one terrific experience.
There is more than enough in this world to go around. No one will suffer when we are successful and we will not be deprived when someone else achieves. Actually, the better each of us does the better all of us will do. Winning in life is the name of the game. We are here to express our personal gifts, which will bring us abundance of all kinds. It is only when we think in terms of lack and limitation, such as there is not enough to go around, that we block ourselves from our wins. Keep in mind that your achievements do not diminish anyone else’s chances and actually it increases their chances. The better you do, the more you are able to help and support others to achieve their own personal success.
Are you ready to step into the winner’s circle?
This week notice the areas in your life that are not as full and rich as you would like them to be. This doesn’t necessarily have to do with only money; there are many ways to experience abundance and prosperity in your life. If you are experiencing any lack, ask yourself if you are concerned or worried that there isn’t enough to go around? Do you think that, if you achieve, it will diminish the chances of others? What can you do this week to turn your thinking around and begin to step into the “winner’s circle?”
