Message from the Universe: There is ONLY one life to LIVE, so LIVE it well
“Do you have any idea of how many fans you have here in the unseen?
Students from far and wide. Admirers from near and far. Friends from other lands and other times. And do you know what they talk about the most when your name comes up?
Besides your French Toast?
Besides your saunter?
Besides your home here with the holiday lights you leave up year-round, the roaming wildebeests in the backyard, and the answering machine that says, “Off having the time of my life in the jungles of time and space…”
Your belief in the goodness of others.
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
There is only one life to live, so live it well. Despite the daily pressures of responsibilities, such as bills, maintaining a household, working on a new business, kids, and so much, we all, somewhat find a way to make all this happen. Imagine standing on top of a cliff, located above the clouds, and when looking down, you see emptiness. On your back, you have a parachute, but this parachute stayed in the backpack since its inception. You have no clue if it will open when you jump but you need to sometimes take that leap of faith and just go for it. I can’t guarantee anything about how the descent will go, but life will always catch you by surprise. Situations that are out of your control will come and hit you in the face like a ton of bricks but it will be up to you to accept and find ways to work around them. You need to always stay calm and collected and realize that not everything can go your way. Some illnesses can hit you hard and keep you ill for a long while which are situations you can’t really control. This is what life is all about. So when you are on top of that cliff, and you do decide to jump, you will be just among the few who will do that, and if you look back as you free wall to the abyss, you will see many staying up there, scared out of their mind, and just wanting to live this uneventful life and not having faith that their parachute HAS to open. So as you go plummeting down to Earth, you will question yourself as to the reason why you took that jump. Even though you are travelling at 250 miles per hour, it will feel like you are floating, as gravity is pulling you up and not down. The feeling will be odd because you will be at peace. Will this feeling allow you to accept the imminent danger of hitting the ground without the parachute to open? Possibly, but the reality is that it will OPEN because this is what you were meant to do. Your attitude about life is what will propel you to achieving greatness, to be one of the few where people from the top of the cliff will admire as to where did you get the guts to do what you did. They will envy you because of your courage, your determination and your desire to be different.
Not many have these skills or adventure type mentality. IS jumping off the cliff with no guarantee if the parachute will open might be construed as being suicidal, yes, in some instances. However, the truth of the matter is that believing in yourself and knowing that regardless of what is waiting for you on the ground will just help you know yourself better and working towards your goals. You want to succeed in business? You need to be bold and taking risks. Staying up there will never allow you to experience the hurdles to eventually appreciate all the efforts you put to succeed. The pain may be unbearable, and you will see a huge lack of support from your loved ones during your journey to success, but by keeping yourself motivated and determined to go where just a few people have ever dared going will make you someone that everyone will dream in becoming, but never ready to sacrifice anything for the sake of greatness. In your journey, you will feel all alone, in isolation at times. You will have just a few spurts of breathing room and then will have to dunk your head under water again. You will have to do that over and over again. It will feel like you are running out of air but with the presence of unknown power, you will be pulled up so you can breath again, just for a few moments, and the cycle will repeat over and over again, until the time comes where a massive 200 feet boat will fish you out and apologize for the incident of dropping you in the water. You will be given a towel to dry up and when on board, you will realize that the ship has YOUR NAME ON IT. Congrats, you made it in the big league.
