Believe – Coaxing Creativity Tuesday Tip Dec. 21, 2010

Believe… a collection of seven letters, a verb that taps into all sorts of stories with emotional charge. Christmas angelStories of the past. Stories forming in the present. In addition, Stories looming in the future. Stories of certainty where we understand, conclude, and know. Stories of unlikelihood where to believe is to trust, have faith, and to accept. Stories of fantasy where to believe is to imagine, assume and suppose.

Not just at this time of year, but all year long we can tap into our creativity to harness what we know to be true, which events will logically follow another, and what we wish to see happen. In other words, when we believe things happen. Of course, planning, action and coordination have a significant impact on the outcome as well. However, the invisible web surrounding us as we plan, supporting us as we act, and sustaining us throughout, is that we believe in ourselves. Nothing happens without it.

Whether your story involves angels announcing to shepherds the birth of infant King born in a manger, flying reindeer pulling a red sleigh, or a tiny amount of oil burning for eight days, when we believe magic happens.

Believe in your accomplishments.

Believe in your gifts

Believe in your dreams.

Believe in YOU!
