Charles L. Allen asked a question about that, wondering
why so many people settle for so little.

You do not
have to place yourself among them. The world is an abundant place.
Abundant with opportunity, abundant with good fortune,
abundant with ideas, and abundant with love.
Reach into that abundance and take what is rightfully yours.
It is your inheritance, gifted to you by God. Let yourself have it.
Do not fail to reach for it for fear that it will not come to you.
How can it come to you if you do not reach for it?
Do not be content with so little.
Reach, stretch, for something big.

Neale Donald Walsch
