During any football game in which I specialized in for quite sometime, I’ve seen many players that carry the football or when chasing down a play or blocking for the next touchdown, get thrown off. I mean you are focused on a course of action and “wham” someone knocks you off balance or throws you off course.
Another instance imagine driving down the freeway 75 mph, and you are focused on getting to your destination. Suddenly you can spot a bad situation coming and you are knocked off course with an accident or for some reason you are being asked to pull over by the police.
I sense that this happens to many people when pursuing a worth while dream, it could be your marriage, your children, your health, your finances, business, profession, you chose the topic. But, what do you do?
3 Things Not To Do
Many people, not talking about you?! Some give up, some play the blame game, others throw in the towel, or some harness their emotions and make bad decision and try to retaliate immediately.
3 Things To Do
My encouragement is to find the will to fight past the obstacle and refocus towards a greater goal, your purpose.
One thing I can share with you, is that if you get thrown off course and I have experienced this times in my life don’t get discouraged. I believe the being thrown off course can be a positive if you see it that way. Think about this when you are thrown off course you have a chance to look round at what happened , it allows you to asses the situation and make a better choice. But here is the kicker, you can not wait or wallow in your current state often. Quickly ask the question , “what do I need to learn and where do I go from here?” Good questions call upon good responses.
Allow me to encourage you and be resilient in your dealings , especially when things seem rosy and now there is a strong smell of ashes. Be the Phoenix and rise out of the ashes to greatness.
