You have the privilege of deciding the meaning of every event in your life. You can choose a meaning that empowers you, or you can interpret it in a negative fashion so that it becomes a weapon of self-destruction. The frame you place around an event makes all the difference.
GETTING STUCK IS GOOD - YOU ARE LIVING YOUR DREAMS
I'm grateful for all the times I've been stuck over the years. That's what happens when I live my dreams.
I've been up to my axles in sand too many times to count. That's terrific because it means I am living my sand dreams.
I been sailing offshore in forty five knots of wind and eighteen foot seas trailing warps behind my boat, and that's fantastic. That means I am sailing on the ocean of my dreams.
I've been stuck in front of a computer screen writing books on positive thinking for more than ten years. That's good because my writing is helping other people live their dreams.
I've been stuck for thousands of hours working on my websites, and that is totally awesome, because I now have a Positive Thinking Network that reaches people in 196 countries around the world.
If I'm lucky I'll get stuck somewhere in Africa when I drive from Cape Town to Cairo in my Land Rover.
I've been stuck too many times to count, and I hope my good fortune continues.
You will never be able to live your dreams if you don't master the art of creating positive reframes. Positive reframes get you through the hard times when nothing else will.
Nobody likes to be stuck in life, but I would rather be stuck in the Empty Quarter of Saudi Arabia with sand up to my axles than be stuck at home doing nothing.
My green Land Rover is severely bogged down two hundred kilometers into the Empty Quarter, and I am happy to be there. Getting stuck is inconvenient, but it's not the end of the world. It's simply time for shovels and sand ladders. It's part of the adventure and goes with the territory. If I never get stuck and have to dig out, I may as well drive around the mall parking lot. You don't need a Defender to drive in a parking lot, and even if you had one, it would mock you because that's not what Land Rovers are for.
People who live their dreams are masters of the positive reframe. Problems don't stop them; they reframe them. They are always looking for ways to go around, over, under and straight through the challenges of life, and they reframe them as adventures.
People who master the art of the positive reframe have a special name. They are called Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly Persistent, Doers of Dreams.
