019. The Magic of Unstoppable
Happy Tuesday folks! Today’s TIP is “The Magic of Unstoppable”
Today’s TIP was inspired by my run this morning! I honestly had no clue what my TIP was going to be this week and was about to continue with my regular workout routine when I thought maybe I would go for a run instead. It’s amazing what you can create by just switching things up a bit!
When I go for runs, I usually take the same path that leads down to the beach. Along that path, there are several traffic lights, so I normally have to stop several times along the way. Today was different. Today as I approached my first traffic light and it was turning yellow, I decided I was going to speed up and sprint through the light instead of slowing down and stopping (my normal routine when I see a yellow light). Ah ha…my TIP!
In that instant, I thought to myself…”How many times in life does a signal pop up to indicate I need to slow down, or go the other way and I adhere to that, instead of pushing the pedal down and speeding up to the challenge?”
I started thinking about all the times a small challenge has stopped me from pushing forward. It may have seemed small at the time, but in the long run those stops add up and can hold us back from accomplishing our true potential.
I decided I was going to approach each traffic light I came to the same way for the duration of this run and just see what might happen when I change up my ways!
You may be wondering what the results were of my little experiment…Guess what? I didn’t stop once!!! I was, in fact, unstoppable!
Now, when it comes to traffic, obviously we don't want to be reckless. When you're driving, please slow down and adhere to the laws. BUT...when it comes to life, let's start being a little reckless!
Let's do things differently and see if we can get a different outcome. As long as we keep doing the same things over and over, we will continue to get the same results! Why not take a leap of faith, go out on the limb and try something new! You may get the same results, or you might get completely different results that will blow your mind, exceed your expectations and change your life!
Let's start doing things differently and watch the magic begin!
Send that text you wouldn't normally send. Make that phone call you wouldn't normally make. Have that conversation you wouldn't normally have. Apply for that job you never thought you would get. Sign up for that race you never thought you could run. Tackle that mountain you never thought you could climb. Accept that challenge that you never thought you could accomplish.
From now on, think of those yellow lights as challenges. When you see one, don’t slow down and stop, or go the other way...speed up to the challenge. Push past the fear. Get out of your comfort zone. That is where the magic happens! Become unstoppable!
It might be risky at times, but if you don’t try, you just might miss the opportunity of a lifetime waiting on the other side of your comfort zone!
With love and gratitude,
PS: Ask yourself…what could I accomplish if I became unstoppable?!
