Life can be a journey or a “trip” — Are you going to be a whiner or a winner in life? An African proverb teaches that “it rains on everyone’s roof.”
Faith and fear are both expecting something to happen. Faith expects something good to happen. Fear expects something bad to happen. Fear is exhausting. Faith is liberating. If you can change how you think, you can change how you feel. When you change how you feel — you change how you act.
When “shift” happens in your life you can either choose to feel bitter, helpless, resentful, angry and afraid. Or you can choose to yield to the circumstances out of your control and gain wisdom, compassion, spiritual insights and future coping skills. It’s not always the shift situation that causes unhappiness. It’s your thoughts about it. When the bad feelings come, you don’t have to chase, push, fight, flee, cave in or suppress them. Let them come in and go out like a swinging door. The feeling will pass. Or you can become frozen with fear, anger and worry. Faith helps you to navigate your way out of a dark place into a place of light to see what steps you need to take to see and believe in your possibilities are for a better tomorrow.
The flow of traffic is better when you are in the “diamond lane”. You cannot drive in the lane if you are driving alone. You must have one or more persons traveling with you to reach your destination faster and to avoid slow traffic.
As your “Success Navigator” I can accompany you to avoid slow progress and improve your achievement rate of reaching your goal/destination faster.
You can pass those who are isolated and traveling the road of life alone without any guidance, coaching or support.
Your associations determine your destination. Who is traveling with you on the road of life? Who gets your time, energy and support? If you want to go and grow to another level, check your passengers. Put good fuel in your tank (body). Check your tires often to avoid blowouts and burnouts. Keep your windshield (vision) clear. Follow your map. Don’t get off your road to success and take the next nearest exit because you feel discouraged, tempted or distracted. The main thing is to KEEP the main thing…THE MAIN THING.”

There won’t be all green lights on your road to success. Learn to be flexible, patient, focused, determined and enjoy the journey. If you are teachable, you can avoid many u-turns and dead-ends when you invite the right passengers to join you along the way.” ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor ` www.TheSuccessNavigator.com
