I love being on the water. I have been deep sea fishing, sailing, and cruising.
Have you ever seen the sign, “slow no wake?” That means that the boat must be going slow enough not to put out any wake behind the boat. It is a sign that you need to slow down.
Most of us don’t need to slow down, we need to put it in high gear!
Is your motto, “slow, no wake?” Today, you need to make a conscious decision to expand, take a risk and get out of the slow no wake zone.
Your zone should never be static. When it’s not expanding, it’s contracting. Its time to put your foot on the pedal.
The slow no wake zone is the place where you get compliant and comfortable. When that happens, it brings an unsettled, “closed in” feeling. You begin to feel trapped because you were made for more.
Are you in the slow no wake zone?
Let me give you five characteristics of this zone and you can see if you are there.
1. Compliancy has set in.
Compliancy is the disease of being satisfied where you are in your life.
2. No Growth.
You are coasting through life…you’re not growing mentally, emotionally or spiritually. It’s like riding in a taxi and being stuck in traffic. The meter is running and it is costing you but you are not moving forward.
3. You’re Afraid to Take a Risk
4. Unwilling to Pay the Price
5. You have convinced yourself that you’re okay and “this” is the way that things will always be.
Today let me encourage you to push down on the throttle!
