No, I didn't ask if you were "road WEARY"...some of you may be if you are driving long distances this summer with your kids on vacation!
Continuing with the "theme" that I began yesterday in talking about us "driving" our vehicle of choice (either a positive or negative attitude), I want us to consider what we are (or aren't) doing to prepare ourselves for our daily journey.
My guess is that, if you HAVE gone on that family vacation, you probably had your automobile checked out to make sure everything was in good working order before you began the trip, right?
You wanted to make sure your tires were in good shape and that they had the right amount of air in them. You also wanted to make sure you had enough oil, antifreeze and even windshield wiper fluid for the trip. And, since it is summertime, you also wanted to make sure your air conditioner was in good working order.
You PREPARED yourself for the journey to come.
So, why should we do anything less when it comes to the journey we take each and every day? Why should we do any less when it comes to the journey we have chosen that will take us to our goals and dreams?
Too many people take off on this most important journey (yes, even our DAILY journey is of great importance - our days add up to weeks, months and years!) without proper - if any - preparation!
And we wonder why so many people - including ourselves - fail?
So, what do YOU need to do to prepare for the journey? What do YOU need to do to prepare for your journey TODAY?
You see, it's different for each one of us (to some extent) because each of us are in our own unique situation! Just like you would never take a luxury automobile on a cross-country "all terrain" road race, so will you not prepare yourself inadequately if you know you are going to be facing a LARGE load of negativity in your day.
If you tend to work in an environment full of negativity then you must REALLY make sure you have prepared yourself for this onslaught. It's kind of like putting on snow chains when you KNOW you are going to encounter those types of conditions -- you want to get as much "grip" as you can so that you don't slip and slide out of control.
You knew that I would say this to you sooner or later....it's up to YOU to prepare for YOUR journey!
No one else can do that for you and no one else WILL do that for you.
So, are you ready? Are you "ROAD READY" for the journey ahead today, this week, this month?
Are you "road ready" for the journey that is leading you toward your goals and dreams?
If not, how do you expect to make it to your destination?
Think about it and PREPARE for the journey! I'm here to help in any way that I can (part of the preparation process) but, again, it is totally up to YOU to get it done for yourself.
And, as you do so....
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
