I went to a movie yesterday that inspired me and made me feel so blessed that I decided to do something totally different. Before I left the theater, I planned an excursion for my Tuesday night group. That’s right! Instead of planning to do what we normally do; I sent out a spontaneous and impromptu message to about 25 people I coach and said “ Meet me at the theater tomorrow night.”
Without having a meeting, a vote, or weeks of seeing who would be interested; I decided to just do it! I went ahead and took a leap and said let’s see who’s willing to adapt and go “there” with me! I was so moved by the presentation that I saw I didn’t want to wait. I wanted to take the inspiration I experienced further by sharing it with them collectively. Well, that is my entire purpose; to help people soar. Especially the people around me! The response was immediate and unanimous! My spontaneous trip sent a wave of excitement through my whole group! My excitement made them excited! WOW! What a concept! What a way to operate concerning everything I do, forever!!!
This got my mind going. I was thinking of all kinds of creative ways to keep this momentum going. I’m literally planning ways to inspire the people I coach and to keep them motivated from getting stuck in a rut and it all was sparked because of this little excursion. Wasn’t going to financially break me. As a matter of fact, some people in my group started sending me donations to help cover my faith move (insert can I get an amen!).
See, going places, even on excursions, is something we all need to do more often. It’s amazing what spontaneity will do for your marriage, organization, business; your whole life! Be honest, when was the life time you thought about going somewhere and actually went? When was the last time you changed up your routine and did something adventurous and new!? Taking these kinds of journeys are great because they remind you that even though you’re going somewhere great and you’re not there yet; it’s still ok to deviate from a regular pattern, path, or level of operation to enjoy yourself. I guarantee that you will feel better and the people around you will be encouraged and energized to see how you are taking risks and ascending to new heights. My advice to you today is simple:
Don’t lose your sense of joy on this flight!
Take time to enjoy your life and go on an excursion or two. After, you’ll be even more motivated to get to your destination. When you begin to take time to become more inspired and when you see new places, you motivate your group to think about doing the same. When you take time from your regularly scheduled program and agenda to explore new territory and to relax and loosen up along the way, you’ll set a new precedence. You’ll be surprised at how this will help you and others to see things with a fresh perspective. You’ll be even more excited about getting to your planned destination when you begin to think beyond the norm!!! Plan an excursion and watch how much more exciting this flight called life will be.
