Run In Your Own Lane

Even if you did win in someone else’s lane, the prize wouldn’t be satisfying because it doesn’t belong to you.

To finish your race you have to run in your own lane. You can’t run in someone else’s lane hoping to get noticed for running in yours. In your lane is truly all of satisfaction that you seek in that other person’s lane. 

Run in your own lane; it’s the only way to win your race and satisfy your soul.  

We are often captivated by those who appear to be passing us up in this race of life. But what we don’t realize is that even if they do win the race, they didn’t win our race. You are the only one who can start, run, finish and win your race. In fact, winning is built in to your race. And as long as you don’t quit, and  as long as you run in your own lane, you will win. 

It’s enticing to look over and see who’s running next to you. It’s tempting to even think it’s much better over there. But over there is not where you were meant to be. Here is where your home is. Here is what you’re best at. And here is where your happiness is. Even if you did win in someone else’s lane, the prize wouldn’t be satisfying because it’s not yours.

Run in your own lane; it’s the only way to win your race and satisfy your soul.

Today’s Thought: Home Is Where The Heart Is.

Home is where the heart is; literally.

The emotion or thought you keep coming back to, in every circumstance, is where your “home” is. The question you have to ask yourself is “do I want to live here anymore?

Now hold on to your seat…

Nothing is holding you back; you’ve decided to stay.

Acceptance keeps us here.

And as hard as we try to break free, we can never break free from what we agree to. Our acceptance of it gives it permission to remain and the power to restrain.

As hard as it is to face, we’re choosing this place. Something about it keeps drawing us back. The key to getting free is not courage, not strength, not opportunity, not connection; the key is decision.

As soon as you make up our mind that you will NEVER come back here again, you won’t. But until then you will keep finding your way home and complaining about why you are still here. You will find every reason in the world why you are stuck here, except for one in the mirror.

Home is where the heart is.

If you’re not happy where you’re at, maybe it’s time to search for another place to live.

To Your Best Life Ever!

Grasp This If You Can, And Your Life Will Change Forever

If you can grasp this, it will set you free, AND, put you on a totally new course in life and business.

Are you ready?

….

“It’s Intentional.”

….

Grasp this if you can. The World is not seeing you right now because, “it’s intentional.” You are being passed over for promotion right now because, “it’s intentional.” Everything you are wishing, hoping, and praying to happen in your life right now is not happening because, say it with me, “it’s intentional.”

There’s a masterful story in the Christian Bible where Jesus was attending a wedding. The host of the party ran out of wine and came to Jesus to “fix it.” Jesus said the most powerful words ever uttered in the Universe, as far as I’m concerned. He said, “it’s not my time.”

You Have A Perfect Time To Shine

It’s not my time. Now, there’s so much being said here, on so many different levels, we can’t dive into it all in this post, but the key for you to know is, you have a perfect time to shine. A “set time,” an “ordained time,” if you please.

And if you will resist the urge to allow society to “mold you” into who they need or want you to be, and if you keep trusting in the deep calling that’s centered in your soul, and not get ahead of yourself, you will get to where you want to go, AND, more importantly, you will be right on time.

You see, if you’re allowed to shine before your time you will be a flash in the pan; a one-hit wonder. But if you wait patiently, remain humble, in due time you SHALL be exalted. And when your time has come, you will transcend most of the arduous journey moving from obscurity to notoriety seemingly overnight.

It’s Not Linked To Age

Remember, this kind of “time” is not linked to age. It is never too late. I recently worked with Robbie at a weeklong city-wide business expo who is in her 80’s and still doing business all across the country.

I met Dr. Barbara Young at the same event who is also in her 80s. Who didn’t go back to school to get her education until she was in her sixties. She went on to get her PHD.

In a recent podcast I was listening to with Oprah and Jane Fonda, Jane shared how she didn’t find her true self until after she turned sixty!

The World Is Being Prepared For You

Your “time” is not linked to age; it’s linked to preparedness. Destiny is only predicated on the fullness of time. You see, not only are you being prepared for the world, but the world is being prepared for you!

Be patient. Be kind. Be humble. You haven’t been passed by, you’ve been prepared; prepared for such a time as this.

Grasp this if you can, and your life will change forever. It’s intentional.
