A captive fish will grow to a size proportional to the size of the fish tank, and no more.
The constraints of my confidence limit my growth and the growth of my business. I’ve been called arrogant, fairly, but I have my edge. The edges of my fish tank are fake- saran wrap thin – just gelled habits, identity, and insecurity.
On the days where I ignore the story of my limitations, there are definitely feelings of fish out of water. Fear. Unsustainability. An addictive attraction, desperation even, to being back in the confines of security, of the known, enveloped in the confidence of “done this before”.
These feelings pass, after a while. The new reality sets in. A new edge is found. Growth happens, for a while.
Then the process repeats.
Enlightenment is potential set loose in the wild. Freedom to grow, unhampered.
