When circumstances change it is also time for you to reimagine your circles in life and relaunch yourself to great places. The boundaries you accept become the Bollinger Bands that define your territory of free play. Go beyond your limitations and reimagine you life. Look at the circles of influence and concern around your life as the starting points and initial coordinates of reimagination. Face forward with boldness and courageous faith. The future is not as limited as the past. You may not change much in your history, but you hold the keys to changing and enlarging your future. What limited you in the past – time, geography, context, resources, networks, opportunity or technology will not limit or hold you back unless you choose so.
Look at the edges of your circle of influence and see what is happening there. Look at the centre of your circle of concern and see the disruptive forces playing there. Look at your circle of friends and see the conversations that they are always engaged in. Being is a circle of complainers and victims just makes you bitter and beaten before the fight. Reimagine your circle of friends and conversation content. Connect with those with ideas and who have a wide circle of vision. Ally with those who are too busy to be bored and too focused to be detracted. Look at your circle of seasons and never be stuck u any season or be blinded by any. Seasons may come and go, but remain steadfast, immovable and always growing faith, focus and fidelity. Whatever the season that you are going through, keep holding forth and reimagining your circles.
Challenge the strong gravitational pull exerted by yesterday and its familiar circles. Do not allow any circle to close you in and define how far you can go. Stand up and stand out instead of trying to fit in. You know who you are when you are always looking for a crowd for warmth and validation. Never allow anything that comes your way to kill you, steal from you, disable or maim you. Do not let the fog of the present blind you from the opportunities that are emerging and have always been waiting for you to show up and wake up to your greatness. Do no allow adversity to colour your circle’s boundaries in bold red. Do not allow turbulence to define your boundaries of desire and destiny. You may be delayed but you can never be derailed unless you throw in the towel and give up. Building resilience means that you are willing to bounce back, bounce up and bounce forward, regardless of the headwinds that you face in any circle.
Circle of Focus
Think beyond being a museum of the past and reimagine your circle of focus. Whatever you focus on determines where you go and what pull you like a magnet. It is not enough to be stuck in the circles of the past or to keep pining for history. There are some things you must allow to die. Put closure on the circles of the past and reimagine your life and focus. Forget the past and do not keep beating your chest over past records, and past achievements. Stop camping on past hurts and making yourself a hero of championing the cause of the past, when there is such a large circle of the future. You are not a victim. Do not dream like one, focus like one or speak like one.
Circle of Greatness
Recreate your life and context. Enlarge your circle of greatness and do not allow your narrow past to shrink you vision, passion and goals. reimagine your circle of greatness; always working to unleash your potential. Take a fresh look at life and refashion your context. Do not let anything or anyone hold you back.
There is greatness in you. Do not let pressure shrink your circle. Instead enlarge it and expand it. Keep dreaming big, working hard and learning as though you have an examination tomorrow administered by your worst enemy. Keep expanding your circle of greatness.
Circle of Life
Look closely at your circle of life. If you are satisfied with where you are, perhaps you are dreaming too small. Do not park when there is still a wide path to your perimeter. Expand your circle of life. Expand your circle of health, wealth, faith and family. Take a fresh look at everything that you are doing and how you have been doing it. Set deep and exciting goals looking at what you’re doing and re-imagining it. Go in your remagination exercise where you have never gone and be that which you have never been. As you reimagine your circle of life fashion it not based on the past but best on your vision of the future. Embrace your magnificent obsession as the new perimeter of your circle of life. Do not be obsessed with the hurts and hinderances of the past. Do not let the misses and mistakes of the past shrink your circle of life. Be obsessed with a new, exciting and challenging circle of vision. Believe in your dreams in life and make sure they are great dreams of the future. With great dreams of what your life can be, should be and is going to be launch forth into this week, this month and this decade of your great life.
Circle of Association
Who you associate with determines what you catch. Reimagine your circle of friends and associates because they determine who you become. You are likely the mean of your six closest associates. If you want to change and re-imagine your life reimagine your circle of associates and your master-mind group. Quit circles that are constituted on the basis of complaining, bitterness, rebellion, defeat and cynicism. Align your circles of association with your desired destination. If you cannot see you future in the eyes of the people around you you are hanging around the wrong circles.
Reimagine your circle of business. Look at your business lines and disrupt yourself. Create new solutions for new circles of customers and solves new problems for your current customers. Reimagine where you want to go. Reimagine your balance sheet, cashflow and income statements. Reimagine your product lines and customer experience. Reimagine the meaning of excellence in your circle of support and value chain.
Reimagine the way you do what you do. Be hyperaware the changes taking place. Rethink and reimagine everything. Reimagine your operations and business model. Reimagine everything in your life.
Circle of Work
How we used to work and how we will work from now on has changed and will continue to change and evolve. Reimagine your work and your contribution. Work is not a place you go to but what you do. Work is not where you show up, but what you deliver. Work is not where you are seen so that the register can be ticked present, but how you contribute effectively to your organisational purpose. See your face and the faces of your colleagues on the lines of the balance sheet or income statement of your organisation. Everything you do has a financial consequence and determine to have a positive effect. Work is not the business card you carry, but the business you actually move. Work is not the car you drive, but the business momentum that you generate. Reimagine your circle of work and your contribution. As how you contribute to the cash conversion cycle, cost efficiency and revenue or results of the organisation. Being there for the sake of just being there will not work or help. That is history and no one wants to stay there. Be there on the organisation chart, not as a body but an effectively contributing member.
Expand your circles and reimagine the future. Do not be hung up on the past; because it passed. Do not be hung up on the present; because it has just gone past. Mr. John F. Kennedy once said: “Those who look only at the past and present are certain to miss the future.” Reimagine your circle of courage. Be bold and step forward lunging towards your greatness.
Committed to your greatness.
