This week’s Monday Morning Message from Wm. H. Danforth, founder of Ralston Purina: What is the Monday Morning Message?
Are you stuck in the same old rut? Expand your horizon and break free of the routine that holds you back.
You can go dead on any level.
You can be satisfied with your horizon. Same people. Same scenes. Same old daily grind. Wake up, shave, eat, routine work, eat, more work, eat again, then to bed. Next day ditto. No vision.
Before Columbus discovered America Europe thought the horizon was the edge of a flat earth. Columbus saw beyond to a new horizon and a new world.
Bell with his telephone, Marconi with his wireless, the Wright brothers with their airplane, Pasteur with his anesthetic—all pushed back their horizons and discovered new worlds.
There are Horizon Lifters all around us. I wish you knew the story of Crystal Maret and Sarah Leezy, who have pushed back their horizons; of the Eagle Division which produced Ward Kilgore, Supreme Exalted Chow Potentate of the P. T. C., and Jimmy Albright, a former Demon who now is a District Salesman; of adventurers in our homes, schools and churches who just won’t be held down.
How high is your horizon? Try for one week to see – Something Beyond. – Lift your Horizon.
What is your vision? What would you do if failure was not an option?
This week, take a bold leap into a new world. Do what you say you would do if you “had the time.” Make the time, take the chance, and make your vision a reality.
