Swim Towards Your Goals!

Just think about this … sometimes we find ourselves in life where we are just too busy.  We got too much going on. Too many irons in the fire. Too much on the plate. We feel like we just can’t take on another thing.

When you think about that, it’s like treading water.  You don’t even realize how far away you are from the shore.  Your life is going by – day after day. You know, like the definition of INSANITY – doing the same thing over and over, yet expecting a different result.

What we’re doing is TREADING WATER, because our whole goal in life sometimes is just to keep our head above water.  Treading water; not going anywhere. Yet, if we stop, we know we’re going to drown. And you got that stress on you, you got all persons responsibilities that you have.  You got all this craziness going on while you’re treading water.

And while you’re doing that, you don’t realize that you could be going further away from the shore .. .or your goal or dreams.  You think you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing, but you’re going nowhere.

You can always tell when you’re not doing anything, because you feel like you’re stuck.   “I thought I would be further along than this.” Apparently I’m not moving closer to my goals, not quitting my job, not getting the lifestyle I know I deserve, or not giving money to charity and helping people.

As you’re treading water, you get turned in the right direction and BINGO … you see the shore.  You were almost ready to give up, to go to average and mediocrity, and to say who cares about my dreams and I’m never going to make it.  But what you see, you know is the shore. And all of a sudden it picks up your inspiration. And gives you hope again and you get to dream again.

When you get a clear view of where you’re going and why you’re going there, you get more energy, you get a little more in you.  You get a little more giddy-up in your step. You stop treading water and start swimming towards your goal. And the closer you get to the shore, the more you know you’re heading in the right direction.

When you finally get it and you know you’re in the right place, and you know what’s going on, you’ve got a clear view of what you’re supposed to be doing!
