The elasticity of life
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.” –Tom Robbins
Fluidity is the key to the whole concept behind Examine the Glass. The road to success can and will change at a moment’s notice, but if you stay committed and focused on your goals, you will find that it is easy to bend and sway with the currents of time. Don’t get discouraged when you hit a pot hole, because right around the corner is the tail wind to push you through to the next milestone.
Don’t be afraid
“And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance, you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.” –Dr. Seuss
The future is uncertain. You never know what it is going to bring. But keeping a clear and calm head about you is the way to persevere. Don’t be afraid of change. Don’t be afraid of being alone. Don’t be afraid of what’s to come. Even the darkest nights are followed by the the rising sun. Just keep one foot in front of the other and you can make it through. Face your challenges head on and you will realize that they are not as challenging as they initially seemed. With fear as a companion, getting lost is easy. Conquer your fears and the road becomes manageable.
Find your “faith”
“Faith is like electricity. You can’t see it, but you can see the light.” –Unknown
Here is the biggest unknown to me. Faith. What is faith? Some people initially think of religion. And for most, that is the case. But for the purpose of this site, faith is more general. If you go to a church and have that network of support, then great! If you don’t, then you just need to find what your “faith” would be. It may be the people you surround yourself with. It may be your inner self that wants to break free. Have faith in yourself, first and foremost, and the rest will be easy. The moment you stop believing in your abilities is the moment all of your hopes, dreams and goals become unattainable. If you find your self not believing in your self, Examine the Glass! What changed? Change it back and find your “faith.”
