Everyone was buckled up and ready to take off. But on this flight, I had a window seat and I actually opened the window this time to see what was going on outside. The plane was moving but it just wasn’t really going anywhere. Just stuck on the taxi strip moving back and forth, but not accelerating. Why wasn’t my plane taking off? Of course my plane was eventually going to take off, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t getting impatient waiting.
This whole situation got me to thinking how life can be this same way. How we can appear to be moving. Wheels in motion, everything set to go, but still here we are stuck on the taxi strip. There have been a lot of great ideas, inventions and businesses I’ve had that stayed stuck on the taxi strip, never taking off. And after watching this happen over and over again, it can make you wanna scream “Why haven’t we taken this thing any further?!”
Looking back out from my window seat, it became obvious to me why my flight hadn’t taken off yet. It wasn’t because I wasn’t ready to take off. The only reason I hadn’t taken flight is because there was just one more plane in front of us (Insert tongues and praise dance)
So could that be why some of the things in my life hadn’t taken off yet? Could that be the reason why the business is still on the taxi strip? Could that be why some of your plans aren’t where you think they should be yet? There are a lot of people I coach who are frustrated and anxious, but you like them are doing fine. You’re headed in the right direction. You’re moving towards your beautiful destination and you’re doing everything like you’re supposed to up to this point. The problem is not really a problem, it’s just timing and THERE’S JUST ONE MORE PLANE IN FRONT OF YOU.
My advice for you today is simple; Be anxious for nothing. Breathe and keep doing what you’re doing. The wheels are moving. The plane is in motion. It’s just not your turn yet. But you’re definitely up next.
