Week 11 - Darling, Life Is Crooked and Cruel. Here Is How To Make It More Powerful.
People like to equate life to a roller coaster. I suppose it is because it has highs and lows and ups and downs. It makes our stomach feel great at times and others we pass back our lunch. We can try to let go, but the safety bar keeps us firmly planted in our seats. At times life can seem crooked and cruel just like when a coaster car spins on a track or takes a 420-foot drop.
However, here is the problem with equating life to a roller coaster; the ride on a roller coaster is designed to be the same experience for everyone. There is never a new twist or turn on a roller coaster. In life, however, there is always something to create friction and mystery. There is the car that won't start on the way to an important meeting, the new business that didn't get funding, the children's book that didn't get published, and most importantly the dream that didn't get fulfilled. We can find ourselves frustrated, sad and powerless.
Here is one way to create power. I stumbled upon this quote that put things in perspective and created a whole new meaning on how to move forward.
Let's try it when the chips are down, and things need to pivot.
What's your plot twist?
Until tomorrow friends.
