“It’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you will realise your true potential.” – Barack Obama

I like his way of thinking. Maybe by saying ‘yourself’ Obama means our identity – our backgrounds or our perceptions of ourself; everything we have learnt and come to think of as ‘normal’, everything we have come to accept without conscious thought as our universe and our context, all the stuff that makes us who we are without us even realising it. This stuff is by far the hardest to let go of because half the time we don’t even know it’s there. But as soon as we do, we can start to think that maybe there’s other ways of being that could work for us too and that is when we start to evolve and achieve bigger, better, higher things. LOVE achieving higher things.
