Cover of Art of War
Seems like everybody’s in the celebration mood. We just had Christmas and now we WANT to get ready to welcome the New Year.
So, I’d like to take this opportunity to with you a very Happy New Year. May the year 2009 shines new light into your life.
Just in case you have not taken the advantage to get the Christmas Offer, we (the authors and I) have decided to extend the offer ‘til the 31st of December 2008.
A couple of days ago, I flipped through an old book that I have read several years ago, “Sun Tzu the Art of War” and I stumbled across a page about thinking out of the box.
It talks about how giant companies like McDonalds and KFC think out of the box to take their business to the next level. As they expand their business, they come across different people from different countries, which also have different cultures. And different cultures have different needs.
So, what these companies did were, instead of sticking with their master plan, they decided to think out of the box. They become flexible by repackaging their products to suit the local needs. As a result, they were able to compete with local businesses in the same industries with little effort.
That’s the power of thinking out of the box.
This little idea kept me thinking. How I can think out of the box when it comes to the Law of Attraction? The first thing that came into my mind is possibilities.
Often times, we tend to fix a way for something to come to us and this action closes all the doors of possibilities.
For example, if a person wants a bike badly, and he is thinking of getting some “extra money” from his boss (e.g. pay raise, bonuses) to achieve his goal; he is NOT thinking out of the box.
I’m not trying to say that he won’t be able to get the pat raise to buy the bike. But by saying or thinking that way, he is shutting other doors of possibilities which might be more harmonious to the universe such as get the bike as his Christmas gift, win a lucky draw, get a good deal… etc.
Do you see my point here?
We are living in the world of endless possibilities. Never fix the way they come to you. Let the universe decide the best way for these great possibilities to be delivered to you.
Practicing the Law of Attraction isn’t that hard after all if you are willing to think out of the box. Don’t fix the way. Just let it come to you.
