Have you fallen into the deep end of the pool and just as you make your way to the top of the water’s surface you feel a hand submerging your head deeper and deeper? You try to fight but you just can’t overpower the culprit?
You are almost out of breath and out of will to continue the fight. What are you going to do? Here’s some sound advice for this predicament: stop drowning yourself.
It’s true. Most of the time, you are drowning yourself. Your own hand is holding your head down below the water’s surface. You are struggling to fight with yourself to near death while no one else is around.
Why are you drowning yourself?
– Are you afraid of change? Are you scared to move to the next level? Are you afraid to veer from your schedule? Are you scared to ask for help?
You have to realize your own reason.
When life’s storms floods your baby wading pool and the floaties no longer work; it’s time for you to learn how to swim. Don’t drown yourself with the “unplanned.” Allow the “unplanned” to strengthen your senses and swim like you’ve never swam before. You never know your full potential until Murphy’s Law is in full effect.
Otherwise, no one in this world would experience greatness. There would only be the average or the mediocre and everyone else would be sub par. That isn’t what the world needs. The world needs fighters, innovators, pioneers and dreamers willing to live out their dreams.
Life’s storms aren’t here to drown you or cause you to drown yourself. You go through tragedy, tribulations and turmoil to reach triumph! So as the water rises and you find yourself moving closer to the deep end, don’t panic and drown yourself. Take a deep breath and head under to find the “amazing” you’ve never found before. Just remember to come up for a breath of fresh air every so often because you are only human. Not a fish.
