I can’t think of one thing a penny will buy in today’s world. All I use a penny for is to make the right change to cover the city, county and state taxes when I make a purchase. However, when held up to your eye, as small as it is, a penny can block your view of the world around you.
How does a penny apply to you today? Don’t let small bumps in the road block your long term plans for success or destroy your positive hopes for the future.
I ran on a book the other day by author Shari Dew whose title summarizes my thoughts: If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn’t Be Hard.
Try the experiment. Put a penny up to your eye and then remove it. Removing the penny is similar to using your resilience and the “expect success” attitude to help you triumph over all odds.
