It may seem like the whole world is coming apart; inclement weather, unstable
financial market, faulty relationships and horrid job. We have but one thing
to remember as sailors of life…we are here, to meet, and rise above and
conquer every challenge that we happen upon during the adventure we call
First we must learn to use time in all its aspects, fluidly and with unlimited
vision. Just as the horizon lay in all directions, thus, time expands in
all directions, through all dimensions of time and space. To be able to
see all parts of time along with knowing your current position, there is
nothing you cannot accomplish. Time truly is the key to success.
Second, we must keep our expectations realistic and our outlook positive.
Having a realistic understanding of the ebb and flow of life is critical
to successfully navigating life's challenges. Realizing that it can be done,
and that our journey through life is meant to be a positive influence on
all we encounter is the ideal goal. Keep it real and keep it positive.
Finally, we have to stay motivated! Inaction is like sailing a tall ship
in placid air. You are going nowhere fast. Forward movement, no matter how
slow, is the best course of action. Being motivated takes energy so take
time to take care of you. Eat right, get enough sleep and exercise when
you can. Remember, the body is an incredible machine but it can take care
of you only if you take care of it!
Remember, we have the best day dreams with our eyes wide open…
