There’s an exceptional unfolding of excellence taking place, right now. It’s been present all along, but we’re human, thinkers. We think ourselves out of excellence and forget that more is well than not. We lose sight of how truly in-place and perfectly positioned we are at all times. We don’t see the glory when we’re staring at the wall.
With every encounter, every failure, every success, every skidded knee, every collapse, every sickness, there’s bigger opportunity than we usually take time to appreciate. Afterall, no one thinks that the bully in 4th grade might have done us a favor until we’re grown up and reference how being bullied was actually the fire that propelled us into living a stronger life.
Failure is Fuel. It’s the stuff that gifts us the opportunity to reevaluate and take inventory of ourselves in relationship to our life. When we do things out of alignment we eventually become drained. Spending time doing things out of alignment has the eventual effect of “burn out”. Then, we’re left to sit with ourselves again. At this point we can do an instant replay, or shift into something different.
By staying in the struggle we feed it and get more of it. However, there’s always another option… This is where the power of positive thinking really lends itself to life.
We continue getting similar results if we approach challenges the way we always have before. To revamp and realign with living a more successful, healthy, prosperous life with remarkable relationships, we can’t do things the same way we always have.
When I interview successful CEO’s of growing companies, they always mention the same thing, “Take Calculated Risks.” Risk doing something different than you have before. Put a unique spin on what you do. Take baby steps. Take a giant leap. Practice patience. Whatever you normally do, attempt the opposite. Give yourself permission to step outside of your own comfort zone and risk what you thought you knew. Maybe you’ll fall. Maybe you become wildly successful. If you keep doing things the same, you’ll never know.
Engage with life. It’s available. It’s waiting for you to align with it and bring forth what your gift is to the world.
Don’t sit on the sidelines and wait to be called to play. Tell the coach how ready you are. Tell life how excited you are to get out there and make the most of it. Do your best and you will grow.
True wealth is not the money. Money just fuels the great things truly wealthy, happy, healthy people can do in the world.
Make today worth living. It’s in your hands.
