"The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions."
Ever feel like you are stuck in a rut, going through the same old hum-drum routine day after dreary day? Almost bored to tears, you want to try something new, something exciting, something maybe a little over the top. But you don't. Instead you stay right where you are, right where you don't want to be.
Afraid to leave your comfort zone, you never roll the dice; never throw caution to the wind. Rather than risk venturing out and falling flat, you hunker down in your cramped quarters, playing it close to the vest. In the meantime, the days, weeks and years go flying by along with the life you could have, should have and wished you would have lived.
"Change is the only constant."
It has been said that life's greatest tragedy is that most people go to their graves with their songs still inside of them. Instead of pursuing their goals and ambitions with all the passion and enthusiasm they can muster, these individuals elect to play it safe. Instead of taking some chances, they stayed in their comfy zone. As a result, their most coveted dreams and aspirations never came to fruition.
How about you? Are you writing this same sad ending for yourself? Have you dug your own rut? Is your present path a dead end street, taking you nowhere worth going? Have you allowed your dreams to become covered with cobwebs? If so, it's time to let your hair down and start making your own music. It's time to stop dreaming and start living!
"Things do not change, we do."
Henry David Thoreau
Too often we allow temporary setbacks to become permanent defeats. When we finally decide to take a few chances, we tiptoe our way out onto the beach. We then stick one foot in the water while keeping the other firmly planted in the sand. If the water is too hot or too cold, we quickly run for cover, scurrying back to our familiar, comfortable rut. There we feel safe and secure. But there has got to be more to life than staying stuck in a rut, isn't there?
You bet there is!
There is a special something gnawing away inside of you that wants to get out, that needs to be set free. That something is your need to succeed, your need to make the most of your time on earth. Believe it or not, you possess an extraordinary gift, a unique talent that needs to be shared with the rest of the world.
It's time to start believing. And start living.
"Change your thoughts and you change your world."
Norman Vincent Peale
Rather than staying holed up in the rut, why don't you start doing what you want to do... for a change? Instead of playing it safe, why not break out of the rut and make your life the exciting adventure it deserves to be... for a change? Rather than wasting one more minute doing without, why not look within and discover that beautiful song that needs to be sung and start singing it... for a change?
It's time to try something different, do something different, and be something different. For a change.
Change the way you think. When you begin expecting more from life, you'll get it.
Change the way you act. When you start taking steps that move you in the directions of your dreams, they soon become a reality.
Change the way you look at life. You'll soon see more opportunity than you ever imgained was possible.
Change the way you do just about everything. When you do more, you'll have more. A lot more.
And for goodness sakes, you've got to bust out of the rut and start living the life you've always dreamed about. And start living it today.
The Bottom Line: Give change a chance.
