MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” -Anais Nin
Hi, John Maxwell here. I'm so glad you're with me on Minute with Maxwell. Anais Nin has an incredible quote that's a statement of strength. She said, ‘Life shrinks or expands in proportion of one's courage.’ She says that the more courage we have, the more that the picture of our life begins to expand and get better and bigger.
When I was a child, my favorite children's story was the little train who thought he could; you know the story. Little train looks at this big, looked to him like a mountain for sure in front of him, and he realizes it's going to take all of his energy. And so, the little train just thinks as positive as he can, and you know starts off slowly, and getting up his steam, ‘I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.’ And, you know, the momentum is going, and the speed's coming up, but then that hill starts to take its toll and ‘I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.’ And by the time the little train has gotten right to the top, ‘I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.’ Whew! ‘I thought I could. I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could.’ If you're like that little engine, you think you can. Anais tells us that your whole world will expand and get bigger and better. If you stay at the bottom, think you can't, your world begins to shrink. I want to encourage you today on Minute with Maxwell to expand that picture. Thanks for joining me today.
