"God places the heaviest burden on those who can carry its weight."
A lot of us struggle with a weight problem. And I'm not talking about the spare tires hovering around some of our mid-sections that we would dearly love to lose. What I'm referring to are the numerous problems, troubles and difficulties that we routinely cart around. When we add up the big problems, the small issues and everything in between that we have to deal daily, it can become quite a heavy load.
Life comes at us quickly, sometimes way too fast. And it keeps coming. Life's ever increasing demands coupled with our hectic schedules leave little time to catch our breath or regain our balance. And sometimes life pushes us too hard, pushing us right to the brink of exhaustion. We want to slow down and take a break rest, but theres no time and no place to do so.
So we keep pushing. And the weight gets heavier.
"Just as we develop our physical muscles through overcoming opposition - such as lifting weights - we develop our character muscles by overcoming challenges and adversity."
Stephen R. Covey
How about you? What kind of weight are you carrying around? What sort of load has been weighing you down? What kind of problems are weighing heavily on your mind? Does it sometimes feel like you're carrying around the weight of the entire world on our shoulders?
Wouldn't you dearly love to lose this unwanted weight?
The only way to rid yourself of this unwanted baggage is to... get rid of it. If you don't systematically unload lifes burdens, getting them off your back and out of your life, you will eventually collapse under their weight. Like it or not, and there's not much to like when you're talking about problems, you must put together your own personalized weight loss program if you truly want to lose this weight.
"Resolve that whatever you do, you will bring the whole man to it; that you will fling the whole weight of your being into it."
Orison Swett Marden
Left unaddressed, problems can take on a life of their own as they take over your life. Constantly weighing you down and holding you back, these unresolved issues prevent you from living the life you deserve. In fact, they can make your life downright miserable.
Instead of allowing problems and troubles to pile up and fester, you need to tackle them, resolve them and get rid of them, one right after the other. And that means the moment they happen, not whenever you get around to it. These problems are not going to hit the road unless you make them. You need to face them - and erase them.
"Lose the weight and you'll lose the wait."
What do you want to achieve in life, what do you want to accomplish? What kind of dreams do you hold, what kind of goals are you chasing? What adds special meaning to your days, what brings a smile to your face? Answer these questions and you'll discover what gives your life meaning, richness and purpose - and makes you come alive.
So what's keeping you from living this life you desire?
While you may have a reason why life isn't working out the way you planned, you do not have a GOOD reason. That's not to say you don't have difficulties, challenges and problems that are holding you back and keeping you down. I'm sure you do; in fact, we all do from time to time. But it's not the size of these problems that matters.
It's the size of your heart.
Deep inside, you hold a special something; something infinitely more powerful than any problem you'll face, something significantly larger than the biggest obstacle you'll ever encounter. And that special something is just itching to get out and make your life everything you've dreamed it could be. You just need to dig deep - and then let that special something out.
When you finally allow yourself to just be yourself, doing those things you were born to do, you'll unleash the unstoppable power you hold within and plow through any problems you face. You've got the POWER! So turn it loose and toss those troublesome weights aside once and for all.
The Bottom Line: Get rid of the weight and you'll get the life you deire.
