A hailstorm that is....................................................
This past Sunday (Easter Sunday) I was on my way back to Texas after visiting my parents in Lawton Oklahoma and I ran right into a hailstorm! Traffic had slowed down to about 20 – 30 mph on the highway due to how bad the hailstorm got. People where “Pulling Over” to the side of the road in fear of continuing on. I kept going through it though and about 30 to 45 minutes later down the road I made it through the hailstorm. There where times when I wanted to “Pull Over” like the others, but something told me to KEEP MOVING FORWARD, so I did.
************ LIFE LESSON AHEAD *************
How many times during our lives have we felt like we have ran right into a storm, life became a living hell and instead of continuing to MOVE FORWARD we “Pulled Over” to the side of the road letting fear get the best of us?
So many people get so close to their GREATNESS but “Pull Over” right before the finish line.
By continuing to MOVE FORWARD on Easter Sunday I eventually made it through the hailstorm. YES I had some damage done to my car, but I can only imagine how much more damage I would of acquired if I “Pulled Over” and just sat in one place!
In life when we run into our storms we need to KEEP MOVING FORWARD! If life can scare you and keep you “Pulled Over” then it will!
Just as I kept MOVING FORWARD through the hailstorm in my car; I have learned to KEEP MOVING FORWARD through life’s storms. Your mind is the key to you being able to continue to MOVE FORWARD. Train your mind and you will meet your SUCCESS, stay FOCUSED and you will keep your SUCCESS!
Below you will find a couple of links to some books that will help you stay FOCUSED and to KEEP MOVING FORWARD in life even when it seems like hell is all around you.
