Again, and Again, and Again

snoopy 1Sometimes I read too slow due to distractions and am forced to read over a chapter in a book several times; have you ever done that?

You really want to progress when reading a book, the excitement of a book is in the new thoughts, and emotions generated by the author.

If you bought a book of twelve chapters and it was the same chapter twelve times,  how would that go over for you?

You might read the same chapter once or twice, but would you re-read the same chapter twelve times?

time 4The book I am referring to is your life.  Is one month pretty much identical to the last? Not too much risk,  kind of bland, semi-flavorful, semi fulfilling?

We wouldn’t settle for a book that was repetitive, why would we settle for a life that is?

I don’t eat the same foods every day, and neither do you. You don’t repeat the same conversations over and over.

Time to write a new chapter for yourself, and encourage one friend also to step out of their rut as well. Helping someone else forge a new chapter will also add pep to your life! My buddy did exactly that for me.


Here’s my call to action in the next 24 hours!

Talk to a friend, one who needs help also, together tag team something different, something challenging.  Finalize your plan right away. Plan when you will start, drive there together. Invest some cash in your plans i.e. new runners, or club fees.

Envision how  both of you in a month will be congratulating each other for your accomplishment because you helped each other, because you acted within 24 hours to provoke a new chapter.

Don’t hesitate to try something you are not good at for awhile, and fail, and then improve. Bravo for being willing to experience that! Others will be inspired by you!

Afraid of public speaking? Visit a Toastmasters Club in your area.

Doing the same exercise routine? – hire a trainer to whip your butt a little.

I predict that  the next chapter in your life, the next chapter you will create, will inspire you, and you will inspire others.

Let’s write together. Change is good, I’m on board also.


Thanks for reading! Comments welcome.
