Get Out Of Your Rut!

skydiversI just finished watching Oprah interview 4 women who  got “out of their ruts” by doing something completely “outrageous”.  SKY DIVING!!!   It brought tears to my eyes when those women stepped off that airplane (entrusting their complete survival to total strangers).

Each one was strapped underneath a seasoned sky diver who knew what to do an how to maneuver. Yet, trusting someone with your Life, is HUGE!  The thrill of “having done it” was overwhelming.

As they walked cross the field, it looked like a scene out of the movie:  “A Few Good Men”, only they were women, they were incredibly proud, and they were walking TALL!

If you watched, you may have thought:  “You’ll never catch ME doing something like that”. And, perhaps, you’re sitting there, in your same rut, unable to move, paralyzed by limited thinking, and wondering when your life will change.

Do you tend to stay inside your comfortable surroundings, and get your thrills by watching people on TV do the daring, the bold and the outlandish. You’re not alone.

” Most people live their lives as if they’re never going to die, and they die as if they have never lived.”

The time to live is NOW. Not tomorrow, not next week, not when you lose the weight, not when you fall in love….it’s NOW!  Take baby steps and you’ll finally get there. But first, you have to figure out what you want and where you are going?
