"The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? It is the same the angels breathe." Mark Twain
We were born with a soaring spirit; destined to fly with the birds, to float with the clouds, to become one with the heavens above. Yet many of us frequently find our lives somehow lost in a tailspin, unable to stay aloft. Although we want to soar higher and travel farther, we end up tumbling into a nosedive... and plummeting back to earth.
What takes the wind out of our sails? What prevents us from flying higher than the stars above? What causes us to crash and burn?
As a rule, it's usually not one thing that gets to us, but rather an accumulation of little things. And over time, little by little, life's little annoyances, little frustrations and little aggravations start to mount up... and start to weigh us down.
"The spirit that does not soar is destined to grovel." Benjamin Disraeli
Before we know it, we have a big-time burden on our hands. Feeling like we have lost the energy, fire and passion we once possessed, we lose our confidence, our self-assurance and our ability to soar. Anchored to the ground, no longer able to take to the air, we sadly watch as the lives we wished we had start slipping away.
No longer believing we have what it takes, we slink into the background. And increasingly shy away from challenges life presents. When opportunity comes knocking, we no longer answer the door. When destiny calls, we are missing in action. When it's time to put up or shut up, we opt to keep quiet. And take whatever crumbs life throws our way.
We can do a lot better than that. In fact, we've got to do a whole lot better if we're ever going to make our dreams come true. So let's get better together.
"The desire to reach for the sky runs deep in our human psyche." Cesar Pelli
There's a life force within that can drive you to greatness; a soaring spirit that can propel you to heights unimagined. It's raring to go, ready to take you wherever you want if only given a chance. You've got to give it that chance.
Look inside and you'll discover all of the courage, strength and 'want-to' you'll ever need. You'll uncover more fortitude, determination and 'heart-and-soul' than you ever dreamed you possessed. And best of all, you'll find your wings once again.
Now, instead of allowing life's problems to dictate your fate, you seize control of your direction and destiny by seizing control of your life. You get rid of life's unwanted encumbrances. You unload all of life's weighty problems. And you unleash the indomitable, indefatigable, indispensible powers you hold within.
"My soul is in the sky." William Shakespeare
Rather than waste one more day stuck in the muck, not doing what you want to do, not going where you want to go, why not take flight? And learn to soar again? Instead of allowing life to get you down - and keep you down, why not rise high above life's daily problems and see how high you can fly?
It's time to decide what you want and then go get it. Don't take no for an answer. Don't let anything keep you down. Don't allow anyone or anything any chance to stand in your way.
It's time to take off. It's time to spread your wings. It's time to fly.
And soar higher than ever before.
The Bottom Line: Give life all that you've got. And then give some more.
