Do you remember the last time you were on an airplane?
For many of us, it may have been a while but think back to the last time you were on a flight and the control tower wouldn’t allow the pilot to land. The pilot let you know there’s a delay and you have to wait until you have clearance to land.
Now you’re frustrated because only a few moments ago you were excited to finally arrive but now you are on this loop around the airport for who knows how long until you can finally unbuckle and get off that plane.
Do this with me, sit back, and think with me for a moment. Take a deep breath and think about something you’ve been trying to achieve for a while now. Take the time to reflect on the following questions:
- What is it you are striving for, hoping for, and working on?
- How long has it been?
- What progress have you made?
Too many of us are in a loop with what we are trying to achieve. You are likely trying to do, have, or become something. But it feels like you are just circling and running out of motivation or getting anxious about starting.
The idea may be circling around in your mind but you’re afraid to start. You may be doing the same things over and over with little progress. Maybe you’ve analyzed this thing for so long you are frozen and have no idea where to start. For some of you, you’ve been in this loop for so long your plane might run out of gas soon.
No matter what you are looking to achieve. The key is landing the plane! Get your idea on the ground. Get out of the clouds, get out of doing the same thing over and over again. Put some legs to your ideas, get new resources to help you make this “thing” happen, find a coach, and take some big risks.
It’s the 4th quarter of this year and the clock is ticking don’t keep on looping with your idea or the same repeated actions that aren’t working. Because if you wait too long you might crash.
Land the plane. It might be a bit sloppy but just like your pilot needed permission from the control tower to land, let me be your control tower — you have permission to land and achieve this goal!
See you on the ground.
