My life is in a rut!!!!

“I’m stuck in a rut…I’m just not happy with where I am in my life.”

We can feel this way about our health, our relationships, our job…we can feel like we are stuck in a rut, good or bad, about anything in life. So, how do we get out of the bad ruts? The bad new is, it takes a lot of work to get out of it. The good news is, when we are in a good rut it’s also hard to get out of it. The key is to get stuck in as many good ruts as possible. I call them the ruts of life. Look at all the equities of your life…Health, Family, Spirituality, Business, Financially, etc. What kind of a ruts are you stuck in…good or bad? We are either happy or you are sad…inspired or not inspired…purpose driven or not purpose driven…healthy or unhealthy…motivated or not motivated…have good relationships or bad relationships. I think anyone who tells us “its okay”…”I’m fine” is in a bad rut….they are just in denial. They just don’t know it and/or don’t want to admit it.

In life we can’t live between the ruts…its just too hard…its like trying to balance on a tight rope for our entire life…eventually we will get tired and we will fall into one or the other.…we can’t be indecisive. So, we have to accept the fact we are going to get stuck in one of the two ruts…either good ones or bad ones. In the book The Purpose Driven Life it say’s “Nothing shapes your life more than the commitments you choose to make. Your commitments can develop you or they can destroy you, but either way they will define you.”

Let’s make the commitment today to scrape and claw our way out of the bad ruts…once we are out, just roll over and fall into the good rut. There will be short term pain with getting out, but it will pass and then you will experience the long term gain of living life in the good ruts.

Get stuck in the good ruts and make it a GREAT week!!!!
