If you want to walk on the water, you need to get out of the boat.


If you want to walk on water, get out of the boat. Just what does this mean?

Many people go through life  wishing and hoping and never realizing you have to actually do something to make your dreams come true, and give your life meaning.

Although it worked for Isaac  Newton, you cannot experience life and hope achieve your highest potential by sitting under a tree and letting apples fall on your head. Many people today think they
are entitled to a wholesome life and all the trappings it brings. I have news for you. The world doesn’t owe you a living, you have to go out and get it, the same way the rest of us achieved whatever level of success we have.

Regardless of what you may think, most of us worked hard for a lifetime to enjoy the blessings of life we may have, and in spite of whatever hardships we are presently enduring, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Life is meant to be lived, not by sitting idly around and letting someone else do all the work and take all the chances. You have to get out of the boat and swim for yourself. The mind and soul needs to be
continuously challenged so it can grow and evolve.

Nothing is accomplished when a being lives in a society where everything is taken care of for them and there are no challenges or reasons to advance oneself by hard work, critical thinking and enduring to make a better and more fulfilling life for everyone.

Many people today, especially the young are not challenged enough, they go through life in a daze because there isn’t anyone to challenge them to excel in life. thus they become depressed and angry, taking their anger out on the very people who try to coddle them by giving them everything
they desire with no strings attached.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that all men are created equal, this alludes to all mankind, not a particular gender or race. This means we all have equal opportunity according to our desires and abilities. It has nothing to do with having an equal lifestyle or income, that is determined solely by desire and ability.

When inspiration and desire induce one to excel in life and create prosperity in their lives, a perfect society will afford the opportunity for them to accomplish all they can, but it will not automatically give it to them, or punish them unfairly when they succeed.

The future is promised to no one, we each create our own destiny, if you decide to sit calmly in the boat, you have to be content as to where the Captain takes you, only when you get out of the boat and walk across the water of opportunity will you realize your true lot in life.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
