Do you love moving forward? Do you despise plateaus or anything that stagnates? If you said yes to both of these questions, I’m glad to say I feel the same way you do. Everyone loves a giant leap towards progress but where can we possibly find this ‘leap’ in life? Of course you have to work for your goals but once in a while, something beyond the ordinary happens. I am a personal believer that no one can credit all their successes to themselves. The ‘leap’ in your life is a gift from the almighty. It comes in many forms and these are some I’d love to share with you.
1. Having your ego slain
You might be at the top of your game right now but you should be aware that some form of failure is lurking behind the bushes. It’s waiting for the perfect moment to strike. In the worst situation, it would discredit your capabilities and slay your ego like a knight slaying a mighty dragon. It is up to you to take this as a turn towards progress or regress.
I suggest you do the former because it gives you a chance to truly recognize the people around you. Most importantly, it teaches you to recognize yourself. Maybe it’s time you realize that your game plan no longer works in this time and age. It probably needs some alterations for the better. Maybe your attitude sucks and this is an excellent time for you to change it. You probably were a fierce lion some time ago but you’ve got fat and lazy once you got put in the local zoo. Now you have to hunt again and make sure those stupid hyenas don’t steal from you. Enjoy hunting.
2. Failing to control your emotions
Once you fail to control your emotions, you have to face the fact that you are having some spiritual problems. It’s a good slap in the face that tells you to get yourself together. It tells you that your weak spirituality has been masked by a series of joyful events all this while. Be quick to fix this because once you are spiritually strong, it shows on the outside. The least you can do is improve your belief and get your intentions right. The best possible result from this event would be for you to build a strong, energetic and inspiring personality.
3. Doing more than you thought you were capable of
So I just heard something on the radio that says life is a journey of education. Apparently they say you never really stop being a student. You can choose to end your formal education to enjoy the type of education that you prefer but the fact remains that you are a student of life. How do you maximize your capabilities as a student of life? Try new things and have the intention to learn from every single event. When an opportunity comes don’t be too humble of your capabilities. This would only keep you stagnating at where you already are. If you’re not a professional, learn to at least act like a professional. This might just trigger some untapped potential in your life. Don’t be afraid to take the leap.
