Everyone’s life is a novel of highs and lows. Where your book reaches the climax is ultimately up to you. Sometimes we think we are at our highest and something or someone comes along and pushes us to uncharted territory. How we get there is a mute point. Getting there is really all that matters.
Life has a funny way of showing us that our destiny may be within reach but we have to make sure we can pave the road to achieve the highest levels of success. Sometimes drifting off the beaten path teaches us lessons that make life a little easier when we get back on the road to success.
The obstacles that we face make life interesting. They teach us more about life than any class or book could ever teach us. You learn to struggle and survive. You learn that you can create your own destiny even if one door closes too quickly. How do we find ways to break down these doors that get closed before we can enter them? How can we make our way into the realm of uncharted territory if we don’t have a map or a vision? All those things are achieved by being able to learn from the past but being willing to step outside of the box when opportunities present themselves.
Too often in life we allow our circumstances to determine or dictate our actions. Other times we use our circumstances as excuses to stand pat instead of gambling on whats behind that door that closes before we can enter it. Too often we watch the door close when we could have easily stepped in that door and threw caution into the wind.
When writing that book on your life, you can’t be afraid to turn the page to the next chapter. If you stay in the current chapter too long, it gets boring and predictable. Adventure is just a page turn away if you are willing to accept whats on the horizon for yourself.
Children’s books are short because they don’t have a grasp on a lot of concepts. Don’t allow your book to be a children’s book. Turn that page and start creating memorable chapters that turn into a novel that you can be proud of, but also that others will want to read and enjoy. Boundaries and fear keep us from living like we should. Erase those boundaries and conquer that fear and become the best you, that you can be.
