Is Your Life Filled With Wonder?
If not, you may not be looking in the right places! Wonder is something we must cultivate if we want to be successful, because it reminds us of our true place in the bigger scheme of things. Even in something as small as a mustard seed, the wonder of it causes you to realize that life is bigger than who you are.
Albert Einstein said, “He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead, his eyes are closed.” Einstein knew that there was more to life that just formulas and equations. As focused as he was on mathematics and science, he knew that the human experience is grounded in fancy as well as fact.
This is an important fact to keep in mind if you are trying to be successful. Ambitious women understand the power of wonder. It is the power that drives us to imagine things, dream our dreams and set incredible goals for ourselves. Walt Disney said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” I think so, too! That wonder and magic in our lives makes them richer, but it also makes us unstoppable. Human beings are created to be incredible, and when we allow wonder to work in our lives, we will find that we can achieve things that others never thought possible.
Of course, there will always be naysayers and doomsday prophets. These are people who have allowed wonder to die from their lives and may never be more than what they are right now. That is not us as ambitious women, however! Instead of saying “no” or “it cannot be done,” we wonder at the miracle of life and look for ways that it can be done! If we continue with that attitude, we will ultimately be successful.
Remember that when you open yourself up to true wonder, you find that life is bigger than you. You stop being the center of your own attention and start seeing how all the pieces may fit together in a grand design and pattern that blankets the ages and the universe. Allowing wonder into your life makes you must more open to new experiences, including success!
