But, wait, what can a screen saver with the quote ‘Expand my territory’ do for you?
Exactly what it says, expand my opportunities, my client base, my financial well being. My success.
The quote does not say give me the stuff other people have. True growth is not about taking advantage and gaining at someone else’s loss. Taking something from someone else does nothing toward growth; it is just exchanging something from someone else. Moving something from one pocket to another gets us no where. An old country saying is, “Rob Peter to pay Paul.” That’s a losing plan since the debt to you is still there
Where did the quote, ‘Expand my territory’ originate.
For me, it was on an old I Phone that at one time meant something, but was lost in my memory, so I looked it up. Of all places it came from the Bible; that dusty old volume that people use to excoriate others with blame about the rich and the poor. All those guilt verses about that evil rich man shoving a camel through the eye of a needle crap.
There’s some positive wealth building ideas in those sixty-six books of ancient dialogue that works well today. This quote came from First Chronicles 4:10 concerning a little known guy named Jabez. It states, “Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.”
Then, just as promised, “God granted his request.
Not many people have remembered his name and the quote was easy for me to forget. So, I reloaded on my new phone as a reminder that the Universe is full of potential on the road ahead. There’s a great deal of new untouched territory to explore and win. The good thing is; no one has to lose anything to make it true.
That’s the way the world really is, how do you see the way it can be?
