A big thanks to Art from Zendictive for this great story:

Two men went fishing, one was an experienced fisherman, the other wasn’t.

Every time the experienced fisherman caught a big fish, he put it in his ice chest to keep it fresh.

Whenever the inexperienced fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back.

The experienced fisherman watched this go on all day and finally got tired of seeing the man waste good fish. “Why do you keep throwing back all the big fish you catch?” he asked.

The inexperienced fisherman replied, “I only have a small frying pan.”

Sometimes, like that fisherman, we throw back the big plans, big dreams, big jobs, big opportunities because we don’t believe that we deserve them or aren’t ready to accept them.

Let me encourage you today to prepare yourself for bigger things.

Get a bigger pan and grab hold of all that life has in store for you.
