A Word Of Encouragement: Living Life On The Sidelines


I want to encourage someone today:


You may examine your present circumstances while watching other people do thing in their lives and see celebrities living it up and say to yourself, “That will never be me—I’ll just stay right where I am and do what it is that I’m doing in this moment.” You then may try to play your life off to others (and to yourself) as already being at its best, when deep inside you feel your heart and spirit desperately yearning for something more.

Living Life On The Sidelines

But you don’t do anything about it.  Instead, you sit right there and allow life to pass you by.

Living Life On The Sidelines 

That’s called living life on the sidelines.

Living Life On The Sidelines

See, the truth of it is that you will never know how much fuller, greater, and richer your life can be if you don’t ever try. If you never envision your life beyond its present state, how will you ever grow? You have to first see it, and then after that you have to want it. Very badly. Once you have those two things in place, then you can set the wheels in motion to get whatever you want in life. Just believe in possibilities, be determined, apply yourself, put in the work, and you can have it. It really is that simple.

Living Life On The Sidelines

You never have to live your life on the sidelines at all.  In fact, that’s not what the Universe intended for us to do. Each and every one of us placed on this earth were purposed to have the best life possible. From birth you were given everything that you need to thrive, and you were given the path you’re supposed to go. It’s just about you being brave and determined enough to walk on the path versus sitting along the path. No matter what your circumstances are at any given moment, the choice is always up to you.

Living Life On The Sidelines

So be encouraged. If you find yourself looking around you see that you’re sitting on the sidelines of life, get up! Get your spunk back in you! Look beyond where you are and go get and be what you want—you can do it! Remember:  when it’s all said and done, the main ingredient that is keeping you from your best life possible is YOU.

Living Life On The Sidelines

So what are you waiting for: get up, get out, and GET GOING! 🙂
