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!

Are You Out of Your Mind?!

Wednesday Wisdom: “Are You Out Of Your Mind?!

Where does your head need to be in order for you to take full advantage of where you are?

Money rarely determines the most important outcomes in our life; attitude does. You can have it “oh so right” and see it “oh so wrong” and you’re going to miss out on an opportunity of a life time.

Resist the urge to “figure it all out” before acting upon it. Remain open, flexible, fluid. Get on and go for the ride. See where it take you.

Don’t over steer it.

Keep watching ahead for signs that it may be time to change direction, or even “get off the bus,” but don’t try and figure it all out before you even get started. It will keep you where you’re at.

When you start where you’re at, again, you will look back and beat your self up, again. You’ll bathe in the regret of what you wish you would have done, again.

And when it does materialize, and you do finally see it for what it is, you will wish you could have seen it for what it could have been and took the chance; taken the leap.

Are you out of your mind?

Ask to see what’s in front of you the the way you need to see it, so you can be who you need to be, at this specific moment, so you can take full advantage of the opportunity that is in front of you.

How you see it will determine whether or not you seize it, or rationalize it away….again.

Are you out of your mind?
