Sometimes, the horizon can seem to stretch in front of us forever. Sometimes, it seems that we are smack up against the world. We can’t see beyond where we are. We can’t see past our problems and struggles.
Time to extend and expand your horizons.
There are three horizons we can all expand: our problem horizon, opportunity horizon, and growth horizon.
When we can’t see past our problems, our problem horizon is limited. At those times, you can believe that there is nothing on the other side of a problem or situation.
Sometimes, we just can’t see any opportunities. Our opportunity horizon is too small, too close. There seems to be no options, no possibility, no opportunities. At the same time, others are seeing an opportunity everywhere. The difference is their opportunity horizon.
And there are times when we just don’t believe we can grow and change. Our change horizon is too small. Maybe you tell yourself that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” But in reality, we are ever-changing and ever-growing. The question is only on how intentional we can be about that growth. Do we embrace change or run from it? Do we see our place of growth, or hide from it?
Learn more about your 3 horizons. And then learn 5 steps to expanding and extending your horizons.
