Out of the Box” Thinking

on Oct 10, 08 • by • with No Comments

From a place of possibility, what can you create?

We spend so much of our day in limitation.  The organizations we work for create our roles and positions, and we structure our days from a place of routine, familiarity and boundaries – within the walls.  Even though we may be challenged to think “out of the box”, it may still be within reach.  Even in the most creative realms, occupations and workplaces, there are often limits, client, boss’s, ego’s, politics, budgets, peers, time etc that limit the degree of how far “out of the box” we can really go.

The idea that we’re coming from in the box in the first place is a paradox.  It suggests that we’re starting from a point of view of limits, walls and constraints.

I pose the idea of tossing “out of the box” from your vocabulary all together.  Simply think of existing in open, abundant, limitless space.  Create from that place – the space of possibility.  See what that opens up for you.

Try this:  Think of  a time in your life when you felt on top of the world, energized, full of life etc.  What were you doing?  How did it feel?  What did you see, touch, smell?  Close your eyes and allow yourself to relive that experience that again through a five minute visualization.  Use all your senses to experience it again.  Then take a situation that you’d like to change in your life right now and look at it from this place.

What are the possibilities from here?
