A new twist on a familiar quote - Chances are you've heard the term “If it's to be, it's up to me!" I happen to like this quote, the only thing about it is the more life experiences I pick up the more I tend to realize that it's actually only true to a degree.
I can hear it now being repeated from behind thousands of computer keyboards across the Internet, “Who the heck do you think you are to challenge the age old wisdom in that quote?". Ok, I'll give you that much :-)
But bear with me for a second and ponder the quote for just a bit. On the surface it says that we must stand strong and push towards what we want if we wish to see it manifest in our lives (notice the emphasis on having to go it alone). However, upon deeper thinking it kind of leaves a feeling that we are all alone in our efforts, doesn't it?
Here's the challenge though. . .
Think back to any time in your life where you were truly all alone in your efforts. Also you have to remember that when I say truly alone I mean to the point that it was just you and you alone.
This means you can't count intervention from your friends, preacher, priest, nun, mentor, friends, words of encouragement that might have come from a book or tape (because in reality these are a form of another person sharing their knowledge with us).
You get the idea now I hope. We are never really all alone. No matter how dark and destitute our situation might appear to us I promise you if you will take the time to reach out someone will be there to help you over the bumps!
I should warn you though, help is likely to come from the most unexpected places. However, that's one of the most amazing things about life isn't it?
