Cross-Country, Track and Life?

Do you have a desire? Any desire? Determination to accomplish a task, earn large amounts of money, or win a race?

I can remember assisting my daughter as she first began to run cross-country. We would attempt to walk the courses before the race, to ensure she knew what to expect. However, there were always places we couldn’t reach. Usually those were the spots with an unexpected log, slick spot, or mud hole, you could drown in if you weren’t careful.

Darion would always worry about those detours, I would explain how to slow down and be more cautious, when approaching an unknown portion of the trail.

Although she is an adult and those days are long gone. She continues to push forward and not worry so much about the unknown. But rather enjoy the journey, at her own pace.

When Ashby began to run hurdles I thought, with track the visibility would be easier, creating less stress because they knew what to expect. I was proven wrong, time and time again. Sometimes the clear, concise path was more intimidating because the runners, knew the hurdle was there.

Why was this an issue? Because sometimes knowing what to expect, you continually worry about the hurdles, instead of the finish line.

While coaching runners to cross over to become a hurdler, I learned that many chose the 100 meters race over the 300. For example: one meter hurdles, Ashby was confident because she knew it was for just a short stint. It was not the entire track and was quick and easy (for the most part). As well as, many other athletes, who were more confident in the 100 meter, over the 300 meter. I always questioned why? It appeared both would be challenging, but simple enough to train for.

As I observed runners at practice, I watched them anticipate the hurdles, strategically placed around the track, they would fret to the point of physching themselves out.

Three hundred meter hurdles were more intimidating. They took more planning, time, and provided a wider view of the course, to run.

What if you had a family vacation planned, but the map came alive and demonstrated every possible hurdle on your trip? Would you still take the holiday? Probably not, especially if you were expected be far from home.

The athletes would do this very same thing. They would look at the long course, plan all the what ifs in their mind, and sometimes they didn’t run the 300 meter, due to fear.

In life, you already know there will be hurdles, along your journey of fulfilling your desires. But many choose to not continue, especially if they already know how many times they could possibly fall down, skin their knees or have a group of hurdles to jump.

As I assist people from all over the world. I realize life can be compared to a cross-country race, 100 meter hurdles, as well as the 300 meter.

Return to the opening questions. Do you have a desire? What is it? Once you have identified it, look at the end result. What pushes you to obtain your goals?

Now tell yourself…If I were running a cross-country race, I know there are spots that will be rough, unexpected terrain. However, all I need to do is slow down and look a few steps ahead. Glance up to see the dark spots on the path, but then return to directly in front of me and keep on running.

What if your journey is more visible and you can actually see the path? Remember, there will continue to be hurdles. Some will be bunched up together, similar to the one-hundred meter. Yet, others will be spread apart and all come up at once. Regardless of how far apart they are, they will appear.

Your job is to jump! JUMP one at a time and keep on dreaming. Keep on pushing and know that once at the finish line, you may relax. But only until the next race begins. Get ready? Get set? Gooooooo…….

God Bless

My greatest desire is to provide you with hope, determination and ways for you to find your personal pathway to happiness.

Happy Coaching 101 (Day 2, free trial)

This segment was for a beautiful woman, who was struggling with depression, divorce, and detoxing from a toxic relationship. She has been through a great deal this past year. However, I know, her messages assisted her in more ways than one.

My friend, you are worthy of being happy and you deserve it. At this time it is time for you to let go of a lot of crud!! It is the time for you to begin allowing, receiving, and let go!! Life is meant to be happy!!!! Nothing else matters!! Oh sure you will have down times, but they are simple reminders of what you do not want!!! The difference is now you know the reason for these paths of least resistance (Abraham-Hicks) therefore, any negativity or hurtful times will only last a short amount of time! Once you recognize why you are feeling this resistance, then you change it.

You are amazing and I know how difficult it can be to let go and accept that life is so simple but it is!!!! The meaning of life is….hmmm think it’s time to figure that out for yourself.

Guilty? Never!!!

Have you ever felt guilty for something feeling so right? After analyzing the emotion of guilt, I realized many may feel the way I do. When my husband comes home and I am in shorts, t-shirt, messy bun and never attempted to put my makeup on for the day, I have feelings of guilt (self imposed), but I feel a bit guilty. I always attempt to explain my accomplishments from the day, but the feeling tends to persist. Therefore, I took time to meditate and my answers were clear. Hope you enjoy today’s thoughts or message, it has been an amazing realization!!!

Have you ever wondered what our lives would be like if Thomas Edison, Abe Lincoln, Henry Ford, Galileo, Albert Einstein, had followed the rules? Or basically been of the norm? In other words they and many others followed their own path. Thank Goodness!!! Anyone who has accomplished great things, to improve life for future generations, has followed their own path. They have not worked 8 to 5, but rather based on inspiration. Time was a component, but only for their benefit. 

Just think if one of the greats decided, what am I doing? Maybe I should go get a J.O.B. like everyone else! Or why am I questioning this common way of thinking? I should take everything society has to tell me and accept it!! Wouldn’t that be a catastrophe?  What if they felt guilty for standing out or working on a path others did not understand? However, we know now they didn’t bow to the harsh demands and judgement of society and we are thankful today!!! 

Believe it or not when you are on the right path, for you, when you are creating it doesn’t feel like work. There will be times you will stop and question yourself. However, when those not so feel good emotions creep up think what if? What if I stopped this creative process and followed in everyone else’s footsteps? What if great people, who left a legacy for us all to reap what they sewed, had decided they shouldnt be so happy. What if they stopped in midstream and said, “I feel too wonderful to continue. I shouldn’t feel this great about my work! I feel GUILTY for following my own path!”

Doesn’t that sound ludicrous? However, it happens on a minute to minute basis. If you are creating and on a different path than everyone else around you, guilt creeps in and it becomes simple to stop and jump into the stream of ‘main.’ 

If you relate to this message…PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW GUILT TO DENY THE REST OF US YOUR WONDERFUL TALENTS AND LEGACY. 

Let it go! Continue to follow your path of least resistance. Find your bliss that never feels like work and focus on how you can implement your happiness into every situation. 

You have a great deal to create, share and pass on!!!! Just leave the emotion guilt out in the rain and welcome in freedom, kindness, love, and creativity. Who knows your legacy could change the world to a better place! 

God Bless!
