Life is like climbing a tree. Our path always takes us to the top. With every lesson learned in a life, we move up, closer to what it is we are searching for. Our goal is to get to the top – in our own time of course – but to get to the top nonetheless.
The problem for most of us is that we get caught out on branches that do NOT support us. These branches may look supportive and even seem supportive at times, but we may find ourselves on very shaky ground with them – whether they be in the form of jobs, partners, friends, etc…
If you want to excel in life, you must be able to identify these broken branches and move past them onto more stable limbs. The real problems begin when we spend more time trying to “fix” the broken branches and help them to be more supportive of our needs. Why do that? Why expend the energy to fix the very foundation that is not honoring you? Wouldn’t it be best to keep moving upward and rely on a stronger and better foundation to do so?
We get caught up in the dramas of life and forget that our responsibility is to ourselves and that we need to keep climbing to the top. We get sidetracked and think that our responsibilities are to fix the broken branches beneath our feet. Those branches are broken for a reason. They are teaching you where to step next time and what to watch out for. Don’t try and fix them, learn from them. The goal is to make YOURSELF better, not the branches.
Life goes on whether you continue your journey up the tree or you choose to spend your time saving branches. It’s always your choice. Choose the path that is going to bring you to where you want to be in life.
