Unstoppable You – Day 160 of 365 Days to a Better You

Do you ever have those moments when you feel like you can’t be stopped? The momentum is going your way and fortune is smiling on you. The fool becomes arrogant and pride soon brings a fall. The wise person sucks that momentum into his or her sails and sets course for the big dreams.

Your sail across the ocean of life brings all kinds of weather. Some days push you off course and some days are like the doldrums. When you have smooth seas and the breeze at your back, that’s the time to move fast. Recognize these moments and seize them to make the most of the opportunity.

Mary Chapin Carpenter is a country singer some of you may know. She had a song back in the 1990s called, “I Take My Chances.” The song is anthem to the indomitable spirit of the person who refuses to be broken or culled by life’s rough edges and continues to dare to his or her best self.

Power Hack: There’s a couple lines in that song to put in your heart on those days when you’re pushing your ship to the limit.

Now some people say that you shouldn’t tempt fate
And for them I can not disagree
But I never learned nothing from playing it safe
I say fate should not tempt me

What is fate compared to the spirit of a human being pursuing a worthwhile dream? No one ever achieved a great dream by playing it safe. Playing safe is where big dreams go to die.

So, Chapin-Carpenter continues later in the song, “Cut the deck right in half, I’ll play from either side.”

Ready your ship for a week of fast sailing ahead!

Thanks for stopping by and reading the blog. If you got something from it, I hope you’ll share it with some friends. I appreciate you all!

Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  1. This is so true! Playing safe doesn’t help us grow. It’s the difficult times, challenging people and opportunities that open our eyes to things we’ve failed to see before 🙂 how we look at those issues is all that matters. We can let them drag us down or learn the lesson and bounce back way more stronger than ever before !!
