Be the Captain of your Ship
Ever heard the inspirational quote, “When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”
Okay then let me add this. “it isn’t just about not allowing anyone else
The way we live our lives can be compared to us sailing on a boat in the ocean. We would be faced by winds and turbulent waves (obstacles) that battle hard against our boats.
For some people, this boat keeps sailing blindly on the ocean without any definite direction. While for others, this boat seems to have a course and is sailing in a direction.
Some people sail their boats towards an island called “Normal Island.” This is where you get a house, a car and a two-week vacation every year.
While for others the boat sails towards “Paradise Island,” where they get multiples of what anybody else is getting.
In which boat would you rather be?
It is doubtful that you would choose the boat heading towards “Normal Island.” So “Paradise Island it is.
Let me ask you another question.
Who is the captain of your boat?
You know the answer to this question. It is YOU!
How come that your boat is not sailing to paradise island? You probably did everything you were told to do. You went to school and got your (college) degree.
Well, the answer is that we were all taught to autopilot to “Normal Island.” We are taught to keep ourselves limited with what we can achieve. Why would the “owners of paradise island” share their paradise with you?
Let’s take a look at those actually living on paradise island. Usually, the inhabitants of paradise island are high achievers.
These are people who have learned to harvest their own energy and that they can set the sails in a way that their ship sails to paradise island. Sure, some of the inhabitants got to paradise island because of a grandfather or great grandfather who sailed the boat there. Still, someone in their family had to figure out how to get there and so the family never had to leave.
How do you learn to sail to paradise island?
I am not talking about how to sail your
This is because though “Normal Island” has those,
What are those skills you must master?
You must have commitment, not just
You must stay on course and on target even though the winds sometimes blow you in a different direction.
