Ocean liner Vs Dingy You Get to Choose.

Choose to live a big life.

A life full of excitement and love.

A life that makes you sit on the edge of your chair.

Hello, My friends.

Have you ever felt like you were on the edge of something huge, and all you have to do is step into it?

It’s that feeling of elation and fear mixed together.

Like when you asked some one to marry you? You have put yourself out there, facing the possibility of rejection or the promise of the best thing to happen yet?

This week I went to a concert, There were people of all ages, young and mature, who ventured onto the stage to perform.

Some were so afraid they forgot their lines, others happily performed with confidence, and some involved the audience creating a rapport that it didn’t matter how good they were, everyone joined in.

I applaud these people, they were willing to get out of their comfort zone to entertain us, and have a great time in doing so.

Are you, like me sitting in a 10 foot aluminum dingy, this dingy has been my home and my life for more years than I want to admit.

It has served me well, kept me afloat when events and circumstances threatened to capsize me. I have felt safe in the smallness, and secure in knowing how to manage this small dingy.

Lately, I have had the opportunity to leave my little dingy.

I’m standing on the edge of a new and exciting venture, scared half to death, excited and thrilled all at the same time.

The ocean liner of my future has pulled beside me, it is big, bigger than anything I have seen so far in my life.

Within this ocean liner is the promise of the fulfillment of my future potential.

I’m hanging onto the rope, teetering on the edge, the water is lapping at my small and comfortable boat.

Looking at the ocean liner blocking any sight of the horizon, do I swing and take the chance or do I let the rope go and stay safe.

Have you ever felt in this situation?

Have you known that the best thing to do is to swing and move into the uncomfortable, with the promise of a life of everything you’ve ever wanted?

What has stopped you?

Could it be that you don’t believe you are good enough?

Could it be that your self image won’t allow you to see and feel the confident you, that is waiting for you to move.

Could it be that you don’t believe you deserve all the ‘good’ things life has to offer you?

Where did you get this belief?

Whose, is the little voice you hear telling you to stay in your small safe little boat?

Is it the voice of reason? Your parents, your church, your culture?

These voices want you to be safe and happy. These voices are guiding you from their road map.

You must find and create your own road map. To find happiness and peace you are the only one who can tell you whether to swing or not.

When you build your own road map, you are in complete control of you.

You get to decide what you want your life to look like. The type of friends you have, How you dress, How you earn your money, How much money you earn, Where you invest your energy and talents.

You get to decide where you live, and what you want in your dwelling.

When you decide to swing from the safety of the past, into the unknown of the future, you get to take with you only the thoughts and actions you choose to think and do.

Will you join me in swinging from the aluminum dingy onto the ocean liner?

Will you join me in creating a new heading for the future?

Charting a course that will change everything.

Starting with your mindset-

The thoughts that you think influence what you believe to be true of the world around you and the world within you.

Your thoughts and beliefs are what are keeping you in the dingy. Thoughts and beliefs are entirely in your control.

As you upgrade your thoughts and beliefs, your actions will also be upgraded, your ability to believe that you deserve the life that the ocean liner is promising increases.

You have the confidence to swing onto the ocean liner, to face the fear of the turbulent waters beneath and you have the confidence to deal with creating a new life, and a new road map and all the obstacles that may appear.

There is no promise of smooth sailing, although you will have better skills to deal with the stroms.

There is a promise of a life well lived with active participation, as you create your heading, you get to decide what you want in your life and how you respond to life’s circumstances.

I have the tools to help you to gain the confidence to swing from your dingy to the ocean liner, and set sail for your brightest future.

Be true to you, live your most authentic life this week, swing, take a chance.

Until next time.
