"Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom." Merry Browne . What is the glass ceiling of your mind? What is the highest achievement that you can imagine for yourself? For some the measure is money related. They imagine themselves making six figures while others image seven. For others, the ceiling is related to a job or role title. They just see themselves as working on the line, never daring to jump up a level of management. As Henry Ford once said; "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."

So, what is your mental glass ceiling? Do you have a picture of it in your mind? OK. now imagine yourself raising that bar . I am not a money motivated person. So, it was hard for me, with my nonprofit service heart, to think like a for profit business women at first. But, the truth is, I can serve more people if the business is more successful, so I raised my glass ceiling. The view is completely different up there.

Dream partners want to know that the people that they are buying from or joint venturing with have big goals. There are plenty of obstacles to success these days, don't let your mind be one of them.
