It probably looks higher from up there

When we find ourselves on the edge of a precipice, looking down at the depths of the chasm below, it's easy to think that this time we went too far, that our plan is far too risky, that our product is way too bizarre, that our behavior is just too weird...
The funny thing about perspective is that most bystanders don't see you standing on a precipice at all. They see someone doing something a little edgy, but by no means nuts.
Just about all commercial behavior is banal. Even in movies that deal with businesspeople, the characters don't dream nearly big enough about one's ability to change the culture or the enterprise.
You're far more likely to go not-far-enough than you are to go too far.
Internal monologue amplifies personal drama. To the outsider, neither exists. That's why our ledge-walking rarely attracts a crowd. What's in your head is real, no doubt about it, but that doesn't mean the rest of us can see the resistance you are battling (or care about it).

Here is another gem from Seth's blog:
Stories are the way we navigate our world, our chance to make sense of who we are and what we do.

Introducing tote bags or charity auctions muddies the waters, gets us thinking about the value of that thing we bought, not the story itself.
If people aren't donating to your cause, it's because you're not telling a story, or telling the wrong story to the wrong people (in the wrong way). Non-profits make change, and the way they do this is by letting us tell ourselves stories that nurture our best selves.
Positive thinking starts with the truth that all is well. Harmony is the default status of the universe. Everything starts out from one Source of Good, and Good is the only reality. We don't heal by making "evil" or dis-ease a power equal to Good, the Source of Life. Like the sun's rays, we are expressing this beautiful source of all creation. It is the invisible harmony that runs things, like the software inside a computer.

Positive thinking raises our vibrations so that we attract more and more positive outcomes. Change your thoughts and you will raise your game.

If all you did was just look for things to appreciate, you would live a joyous, spectacular life.
