"Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices."
Alfred A. Montapert
Ever get the uneasy feeling that you're stuck in a rut, going nowhere particularly fast? You see others roaring right past you, having the time of their lives, and you wish you could join in on all of the fun. You want to do better, you want to get moving, but you feel stuck, trapped, completely fenced in. And you don't know what to do; you don't know where to turn.
Being stuck in a place you don't want to be is one of the worst feelings on earth. Yet many of us find ourselves in that 'place' right now. We have things we want to experience, places we want to explore, new ideas we want to discover, but we're nowhere close to making any one of them a reality. For whatever reason, we just cannot escape the rut we're in.
Or can we?
"You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."
The best way to get out of a rut is to, well... get out of it. Regardless of whatever rut we may find ourselves stuck in today, there's a way to get out and get where we have always dreamed of going. That's right; there's ALWAYS a way out! But there's also a catch. And that is precisely where the majority gets snared.
Getting out of a rut requires us to take charge of our lives and make something happen right now. And that taking charge stuff scares the dickens out of a lot of folks. Taking charge takes personal responsibility - and that's one thing most people try to avoid like the plague.
Let's face it; it's easy to blame our problems and predicaments on someone or something else; way too easy in fact. And while pointing the finger in every direction but ours may make us feel better for a while, it doesn't get us one step closer to climbing out if the rut we're in. In fact, it just buries us even deeper.
If we're going to get out of the rut we find ourselves in, we've got to climb out, one step after another.
"The best way to escape from your problem is to solve it."
Not where you want to be today? Maybe not even close? Are you ready for something a bit more exciting, a little more rewarding? Then why not make some meaningful changes in your life - and make a move to get out of the rut?
You need to determine where you want to go, what you wish to accomplish - and then get busy making it happen. Just sitting around thinking about it won't cut it. Nor will hoping and praying that things will somehow change by themselves. No, the only way to get where you truly want to go is to get going - and keep going - until you get there.
Instead of running away from your problems, granting them the upper hand in your life, you need to ATTACK them head-on. And go after them with everything you've got. By going on the offensive, you will find a way over, around or through each and every obstacle you face. And you'll plow your way right out of the rut and right into the future you desire.
"I don't run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet."
No matter how low you have sunk or how deep your rut has become over time, you hold within yourself the power to overcome any difficulty placed in your path. Yes, you do! It's right where it has been all along, right there in your heart and soul. Best of all, this invincible, unshakable, unstoppable power is ready to lift you out of the rut you're in and into the life you desire.
Your very best is just begging, just itching, just pleading to get out and make your life all it could be and more. Instead of staying hunkered down in a rut, keeping your best locked inside, why not let go and let it rip? You'll be amazed at how quickly your life can turn around when you finally turn yourself loose.
Instead of wishing things were better; your life can become better than you ever thought possible. And rather than daydreaming about the things you want to achieve and accomplish, you can be living your dreams each and every day.
So what are you waiting for? It's time to escape that old hum-drum rut-like existence once and for all and start making your life the super sensational adventure it deserves to be.
The Bottom Line: Get out of the rut and start making the rest of your life the best of your life.
