From John C. Maxwell’s book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, the Law of Expansion, I love how John writes in How to Increase Your Thinking Capacity he gives this advice: Stop thinking more work and start thinking what works. He continues, “Ask most people how they can increase their capacity and they’ll tell you by working more. There’s a problem with that solution. More work will not necessarily increase your capacity. More of the same usually results in more of the same, when what we actually want is better than what we have.”

John’s second point says this: “Stop thinking can I? and start thinking how can I? At first glance, the questions Can I? and How can I? may appear to be very similar. However, the reality is that they are worlds apart in terms of results… How can I? assumes there is a way. You just need to find it.”

And, his third point: “Stop thinking one door and start thinking many doors. When it comes to growth, you don’t want to stake your future on one “door.” It may not open! It’s much better to consider many possibilities and look for multiple answers to all of your questions. Think in terms of options.”

To sum this up, John states, “The process of expanding one’s potential is ongoing. It ebbs and flows. Opportunities come and go. The standards we must see for ourselves are constantly changing. What we could do changes as we develop. What we should do also evolves. We must leave behind some old things to take on new ones.”




I want to offer you something that has been a game-changer for me, a MasterMind group on how to grow and change and have more joy and accomplishment in your life rather than pain and disappointment. This MasterMind group is based on John C Maxwell’s powerful book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.
