Climbing Up a Waterfall

Climb it!!

In life the easiest way seems to be the best way. Why would people want to struggle when they can just coast through life. Seems like a good idea right? Wrong, coasting along down the river is not the way to go. Today we are going to talk about how to climb to the waterfall, instead of getting caught in the current and falling down the waterfall.

Trick in life is doing something that will scare you everyday. People can get comfy in life and just do what they are told. They don’t want to branch out and take that risk. People are scared that they may fail at something and they won’t be good at it. The question is, how do you know before you try? Why is failing so scary and bad? What you will find out you’re not perfect like the rest of the world, is that so bad?

Here’s the trick, go to a waterfall and start climbing up it. See how many people fall off the waterfall by just going with the current. You will notice more people falling from taking the easy way out, then the people climbing up the waterfall with you. Yes, you will slip and may fall all the way down only to start over again or you may slip a little only to get closer to the top.

Almost six years ago, I was finishing college and ready to take on the world. I had zero idea what I wanted to do or where I was going to find a job. Then the fateful call came in asking me to work with my family down in Lexington, KY and become a business partner. Seriously at the time, I was like its money and a chance for some experience. What was I thinking? Is what I ask at least once a quarter and then it happens, the one big client I needed comes in and all is right in my world again.

See the thing is, I slipped so many times from climbing this waterfall. While all my friends went down the river with the current. They had their comfy jobs with big name companies and were happy in their new house or apartment. I was struggling to get the company money in to get a pay check. At times it was down right scary, but I stuck with it and continue my climb up the fall and you know what, I am not where I need to be there, but I can see the summit is getting closer every month. You can truly do it too! Just try it and who cares if you fail?

What’s different from taking the hard way up then the easy way down, is you control it. My life is one-hundred percent mind and no one can take that from me.  I am not saying that everyone should start their own business, I am saying don’t follow the current downstream. You will hit the water fall and as I am going up you will fall down in time.  There are many different ways to climb up the fall and it’s not all about running your own business. You can decide you want to lose weight, hike more, see the world, see every baseball stadium, etc. Something different to make you happy, that’s what you need to do.

Today, you maybe saying I want a better job and more pay. Well, what can you do about it? You may need a higher degree, well go out and get it! Yes, it will cost money and yes it is scary, but if you believe in yourself and it then you can do anything.

So today folks, I want you to grab a rope and start climbing your waterfall. Don’t fear the water pounding on you or slipping down the rocks. Just do it, take that leap of faith and start climbing to the top. What you find on the summit is for you alone to enjoy.

Climbing your waterfall in life is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
