Dare to Live without Limits

Is it time to break out of the ruts in your life?

        We all get stuck in certain patterns. We continuously do the same things, which produce the same results. In order to make changes in your life, you have the break the patterns which are keeping you in a rut.

        Patterns are repeated even when they produce adverse results. There are a number of examples which illustrate this phenomenon. Someone who continually dates one person after another, who has the character traits which cause the same relationship problems, is repeating the same pattern.

        Another scenario is someone who is constantly in financial trouble because they can’t control their spending. Their credit cards are maxed out as they repeat the pattern of buying more things than they can afford.

What will you be doing tomorrow?

        Do you want each day to be exactly the same, or do you want to make progress toward your goals? Do you “wing it” each day, or do you have a plan? Do you wait to see what happens, or do you know what you will be doing tomorrow?

        You plan for tomorrow when you take a vacation. Creating a daily itinerary is a common practice. For example, if you go on a cruise, the cruise line provides you with a schedule of what port you will be arriving at each day, along with a list of shipboard activities available to you.

Are you really awake or sleepwalking through life?

        While you are asleep at night, you are not aware of what's going on around you. But when you get up in the morning, are you really awake? Are you aware of what's happening around you? Are you aware of how you feel? Are you aware of how you interact with others?

        You are not awake when you are sleepwalking. In this state, you have no conscious awareness of your actions, surroundings, or other people. You are in a daze, on automatic pilot, unable to make sound decisions.
