‘Aspire to Inspire before you Expire’MIchael_Thornley

“Last summer on a family road trip I saw a guy pulled over on the side of the road in a late model Hyundai. It was the typical scene:

The cop, with his lights flashing and hand on holster, was leaning on the roof of the car as the poor guy fumbled for his driver’s license and whatever else the cop asked him for.

The moment barely registered in my sleepy mind before I noticed that a different cop was now following me. I had been getting drowsy from a long drive and was no doubt weaving like a guy with nine beers in him.

What happened next is probably something you’ve experienced once or twice in your life.

Instantly wide awake, I scanned my instruments and saw that my speed was about two ticks over the speed limit; well within legal range. I felt my foot lighten and the engine give in just a bit.

My thoughts went from “License is up to date, registration is good, insurance is paid in full…” to “What’s to worry about? to “WHAT’S THE DEAL?!?!”

Then came the lights.. Not the cop’s headlights, or the flashing red and blue overheads… but all of them.

Instantly my brain lit up and flooded my bloodstream with adrenaline…just as the cop pulled away and raced off to whatever crisis she’d been dispatched to.

Damn…that was close. And I was left feeling a mixture of relief, annoyance and exhaustion as my adrenaline dissipated. (And maybe a hint of “amused”…)

Ever experienced that?

Almost everyone has, and not just while sitting behind the wheel of an automobile.

Sometimes, we see evidence of someone going through a tough time; could be a broken relationship, a career rut, a financial flatline or a stagnating business. We slow down and observe from the relative safety of our own “driver’s seat”…until the cop pulls in behind us.

We look down at our metaphorical speedometer and see that we’ve been racing along mindlessly and fallen behind on our goals.

We realize our driver’s license of life has expired due to our own negligence and inattentiveness.

And due to our focus on the “small” stuff (bills, nagging neighbors, bickering family members, increasing waistlines…) we start to drift out of the lane that is supposed to take us to our dream, to our mission.

We are literally asleep at the wheel of our business and life. And now that cop called REALITY is pulling us over. Or worse; we never wake up, and drive off into the oblivion of a mediocre life.

You can either fight through it on your own, mask the sleepiness with the “caffeine” of another escapism TV program or social media binge…

…Or you can wake up. For good!”

Fly High. Fly Fast. Fly Far.
