Day #106: It’s A Bumpy Road


Your morning commute to your destination is a mere metaphoric reflection of your life. It can be simple or bumpy. Think about it. You travel towards a destination, which is never just a hop or a skip away. Usually, it can take patience and sometimes even great effort. Like life, nothing is ever so easy and if you want to see results (good results) of your goals, then you need to be patient and persistent.

It’s like driving into a storm, it can be rough, tough and full of obstacles, misdirection and of course full of risk. But on the other side of any good storm, are better skies and a richer land. Calmness. Storms are the problems, hassles, and ongoing whirlwinds we go through. If you want to stop them you need to go to the eye of the storm. The source of the problem.

To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can’t just accept the ones you like. – Unknown

Sometimes, traffic is bumper-to-bumper or even gridlocked, which means your journey to your end goal may take a bit longer than you planned. The traffic serves as a roadblock to your life, and you just need to navigate it at your own pace. Traveling will mean things will occur out of your control, requiring additional changes, plans, setbacks and these can be both positive and negative things. But sometimes we just need to learn to adapt and adjust. Survive at the moment.

My challenge to you today is… next time you are traveling to work or your daily destination, take a moment to compare it to the bigger picture of your life. You may have an epiphany and just realize something new you can do. But the real point today is. Be ready for things to not go your way, for things to take longer than expected. Adapt, try again and soldier on. Soon enough you will get to your destination!
