Have any of you ever been on a jet ski? My first time riding a jet ski it was exhilarating. I couldn't believe I was actually in the middle of the ocean. And then I realized.....I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WATER ON A JET SKI. And I froze. And I stopped. And I removed my hands from the gas on the jet ski. And me and the jet ski toppled over in the water.
There are times in life when we've finally pushed past our fears and we're doing things that we want to do. We're doing things that we've longed to do; things that we're destined to do..Everything is going well. Things are falling into place. Then, we overthink it. We think about all the reasons why we shouldn't be doing it. Why we aren't qualified. Why it won't work. And then......We take our hands off and we topple over in the water.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't plan. I'm not saying that we shouldn't be prepared. But what we shouldn't do is to second guess ourselves. If you get in the middle of it and you need to readjust, do that! Make adjustments. But don't overthink it! Sometimes, you do indeed have to just go with the flow. Have confidence in yourself and have confidence in your plan and work your plan. Because the truth of the matter is you've already put in alot of the work at this point. So in the middle of it is when you have so much more to lose. You've invested your time, your talents and everything else that goes along with that. So let's change our thought process. The next time you're in the middle of it and those doubting questions start popping up, kick them to the curb. Don't take your hands off! Because as long as your hands are securely fastened to it, you won't topple over in the water.
Until next time TrelleBlazers, be good to yourselves :-)
