March 30, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Edge

“Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump.”–Yo-Yo Ma

Life can often become steady-as-she-goes without a whole lot of shaking up of the internal trees.

We can become hypnotized by the recurrant, past-based patterns that say “this is just the way it is.”

It takes a lot of effort to truly take ourselves to a whole new level of playing. It can be like moving a 10 ton boulder up a hill, and we often teeter on our edge of (current) reality.

Staying in the comfort zone never created a new paradigm.

Where might you take it to your perceived limits this week?

Got edge?

“Life is lived on the edge.” –Will Smith
