If you saw a bridge that said CROSS AT YOUR OWN RISK, would you?
So yesterday I was on another one of my fabulous day adventures. And riding around the mountains its always a bit of surprise as to what might just pop up.
But I was on a mission to find this sanctuary where I could spend the day in quiet meditation.
I drove though really windy mountainous roads. You know the ones where you don't want to admit its a white knuckle drive? No barriers and a long fall .. yeah? Get the picture?
And it was also a glorious day, high sunshine, no wind, the views were spectacular.
As I got closer to this sanctuary , the roads again changed. IN fact, would you really call it a road or a path? I mean they are no longer paved? What would you call it?
Well let's call it a widened path LOL. And for some reason there was not a lot of things in bloom up this high.
But then all of a sudden beautiful purple flowers lined one side of the path.
And my energy started tingling..ohh this is going to be magical indeed. I felt this huge grin start spreading on my face.. and thought i am so close to getting there.
And indeed maybe 2 minutes later. I am at my destination.
And here is the story, ready?
Yeah, you have to cross a bridge to get into this sanctuary.
Umm, let's say it is being very generous in calling it a bridge.
There is a sign that says, "CROSS AT YOUR OWN RISK".
Hmm, what to do?
Park my car at the side of this side and walk across?
Or really drive across?
So let me give you a visual here.
It is nothing more than planks across a large rocky creek. And there are no guard rails, no side rails.. nothing that would give a person a sense of comfort.
In fact the planks on the bridge are so well worn that they have warped and are turning up at the ends. Oh yeah, you can laugh.
And the width of this umm bridge.. is barely wide enough for a car.
So Dear Amazing Community, what would you do? Park your car or drive across?
And it dawned on me, this is the perfect metaphor for our lives, isn't it?
I mean how I do my business at Wealthy Affiliate is dependent on how much I am willing to get out of my comfort zone, yes?
And each time I have shown myself that I am capable of doing even more, I am rewarded with this wonderful sense of accomplishment.
So what if crossing this bridge is exactly like how we run our businesses?
We see the fear, and we do it anyway?
So what do you think I did?
Yup, I drove across that bridge knowing that the Unvierse had my back and that my fear is only as big as I allow it to be . Isn't that right?
And you know what?
Was easy peasy!
So what kind of bridges are we all crossing each day?
And what choices are we making?
Well we know the answer to that, don't we?
We are Wealthy Affiliate.. We rock and we are on the NOW plan!
So let me know about your experiences please!
