Stuck In a Rut? Don’t Let The Storm Take The Wind Out of Your Sails!

Has your ship taken a battering from the storm of life? We have all taken a battering from the storms of life at one time or another.

Some of you will have navigated the stormy waters and will have found safe harbour and found yourself virtually unscathed throughout the whole journey.

If you are anything like me you will have taken on more than your fair share of water during your voyage and found yourself shipwrecked on the rocks of life more times than you care to mention.

You must remember that the journey is fraught with danger, however it is the arrival at your destination that you must concentrate on. There will be ups and downs. There will be storms along the journey of life.

You must NOT let the storm take the wind out of your sails.

You have set your course and you must stick to it.

It doesn’t matter if you get blown off course one time or a hundred times, all that matters is that you do not let it take the wind out of your sails and that you keep on keeping on. I know that sometimes you feel like you want to quit, and you ask yourself is it really worth it? Yes it is, the alternative is no alternative at all.

You will only find yourself shipwrecked on the rocks of life if you allow the storm of life to take the wind out of your sails.

Feeling stuck in a rut is not a place that anyone wants to find themselves in.

It happens to almost everybody at one point or another in their life.

It is how you deal with feeling stuck in a rut that matters.

If you begin to wallow in self pity then you are already beaten, life hasn’t beaten you, you have beaten yourself.

The moment that you decide that it makes perfect sense to stop trying to achieve all that you can is the moment that you are beaten in the game of life. You are the master of your fate, you are the captain of your soul. You all know that the captain never abandons ship, if the ship goes down then he goes down with it.

You must keep fighting till the very end, you must never give up on your hope to create the life that you have always dreamt of.

I will leave you with the last verse of one of my favourite poems.

The poem is Invictus by William Ernest Henley.

It matters not how straight the gait,
How charged the punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
