My 4 year old cousin pulled at my pant leg, commanding my attention. I turned toward him to tune in to the conversation that he had apparently been having with me. He then pointed to a big Tonka truck and told me to say “Hi” to Tom. I saw a truck, rather large but otherwise nondescript. But Ryan saw a magical world where two toy trucks became Tom and Jerry (his favorite cartoon characters). Ryan is still young enough to allow his imagination to create magic from the ordinary.
Today, many of us can use a little magic. It is, after all, Tax Day in the U.S. We can look at the forms and numbers and simply see the amount of zeroes needed on the check or we can see goals accomplished, clients serviced, tasks completed and milestones reached. The numbers can make us scowl or provide a goal for the year ahead.
The magic is ours to create, so what will you see? Bottom line numbers or a big awesome vision that sparkles with possibility?
How do you keep the magic in your own life?
