How Will You Astound Yourself?

popping wowIf you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you know that I’m a big fan of quotes. I share one daily. I’ve been doing this for a couple years now, so I’ve developed quite a list of quotes. And on Monday I was browsing through and one jumped out at me:

If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves. – Thomas A. Edison

I replaced the quote I had planned for Monday with that one. The Edison quote didn’t hit me in the gut, it hit me in the heart.

Do written words ever do that to you too?

So, as I ponder what I’m capable of that I haven’t yet recognized, I invite you to do the same.

How will you astound yourself? This week? This month? This summer? This year?

Sit with it, journal with it, walk with it. Spend time with it however you best process new thoughts or ideas.

What new goals or projects might you take on as a result?

And, of course, I’d love to know what you come up with or what other questions it opens up for you. Share in the comments below.

  1. I love this post Evie. Very cool. Networking is my biggest obstacle by far and this month I am working closely with my mentor to gain confidence in networking. I think I will astound myself.
