Balancing…toes pointed as she slides her feet gracefully across the beam. Each step is cautious and careful. Arms spread out, breathing in through the nose, out through the mouth. She knows she can do this, she’s done it a thousand times, and yet today feels so different. It’s as if the whole world is watching…waiting for her to slip. The beam seemed wider during practice than it does today. Focus…
Do you feel like you are walking a thin balance beam? Maybe you’ve done something over and over in your life with no problems and all of a sudden you are struggling? We all struggle with something at some point in our life. The struggles are what makes us stronger. In our moment of struggle we can not see anything other than the struggle. We focus on the struggle. Don’t give in to the struggle.
Focus on the beam. Focus on the victory.
Slide your feet gracefully across that beam. Head high. Toes pointed. Arms spread from the east to the west.
Now breathe…in through your nose, out through your mouth.
You’ve got this.
All of a sudden, when we are focusing on the victory…
Things feel achievable.
We’ve done this a thousand times.
Show the world that YOU’ve got this!
