"Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light." Norman B. Rice
You had high hopes. You had great expectations. You possessed wonderful plans for your life; you held amazing dreams in your heart. You just knew you were going to set the world on fire.
Life looked great. Life felt great. Life was great - and getting better daily.
But somehow, someway, something went wrong. Your rosy world was turned upside down. You don't know how it happened or why, but your plans went awry. Your hopes lost their luster. Your dreams faded from sight.
In the blink of an eye, you lost your fire. You lost your verve. You lost your energy, your edge, your enthusiasm for life. You backed away. You pulled back the reigns. You throttled your expectations. And now you feel lost.
You dont like it feeling this way. But 'this way' has become your way. And it feels like the best of life is passing you by.
"Why should you be content with so little? Why shouldn't you reach out for something big?" Charles L. Allen
You know the feeling. You have been down that road a few too many times. Maybe you're there right now. Everybody pays a visit at one time or another. And it's a lousy place to be. It's a lousy feeling. Its a lousy way to live. It's a place you've got to get out of no matter what it takes.
Thankfully, there is a way out, a way up; a way to get your life back on track. But in order to get out, you've got to get strong (way stronger than you have ever been in your life). You've got to get right (in your mind, in your heart, in your soul). Then you've got to get moving - and keep moving - until you've emerged from the muck.
"Whoever wants to reach a distant goal must take many small steps." Helmut Schmidt
Getting out always seems ten times harder than getting in. Why? I don't know. It just seems to be the case. But so what? If you find the first steps tough, get tougher. If the going gets rough, get rougher. If you find yourself slip sliding back a bit on your way out of the funk, dig in and refuse to lose. You've got to keep climbing, clawing, and scratching regardless of the obstacles you encounter.
When you start feeling like you are running out of gas, reach down and push a little harder. When it starts feeling like you're never going to make it, reach down and press on a little faster. When everything and everyone tells you it's time to call it quits, reach down and listen to your heart.
It's your time to take that first step. And take it with attitude. Take it with flair. Take it like you mean it.
"Set your sights beyond what you can see. There is true majesty in the concept of an unseen power which can neither be measured nor weighed." Ted Koppel
Most people spend their lives searching for success, looking here and there for the elusive life they seek. Even though it is usually so close that they can reach out and touch it, they never find it. They never know it. They never live it. Please do not make this mistake.
Decide what you want. What you want to see, be and achieve. The things you want to accomplish. The places you want to visit. The adventures you want to experience in your lifetime. Then promise yourself that each and every goal, dream and aspiration you hold in your heart will be yours... no matter what. And start reaching for the stars.
Reach up and seize opportunity. Reach out and grasp life with both hands. Reach out and spread your wings.
It is time to reach deep and realize your goals.
It is time to reach down and bring out your best.
It is time to reach within and fulfill your immense potential.
It is YOUR time to reach out and grab glory - and never let it go.
