The Log That Saves You

May 19, 2014

Unknown… will eventually pull you down.

You cannot continue in a pattern of survival forever. But there is always the tendency to get stuck on that log. After all, it saved you at one point and out of habit, it is easy to grow dependent upon it. But dependency never yields success. Relying on your log for survival gets old fast and eventually you tire of holding it and the log yields to your weight and you both sink. So what once saved you will ultimately destroy you if you do not allow yourself to evolve beyond it. 

The game is not about surviving but thriving. You have to learn to move beyond the safety net of what once served you and push the boundaries into a new life for yourself. No one is going to do it for you. Holding onto that log does not keep you safe, it holds you back from becoming great. We all have our logs in lives – the people, the jobs, the situations that came in and saved us at a time when we needed it. That time is now over and the rest of your life is ready to begin. Learn to leave those logs behind and trust yourself that you can swim to a new side of that lake and create a new life for yourself. Any time you are ready to let go of your log, the rest of your life is waiting to begin. Are you ready to take a chance?

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
