A very wealthy man bought a huge ranch in Arizona
and invited some of his closer associates to see it.
After touring the 1,500 acres of mountains, rivers, and
grasslands, he took everybody to the house. The
house was as spectacular as the scenery. In the back
of the house was the largest swimming pool they had ever
seen. However, it was filled with alligators. The owner explained:
"I value courage more than anything. It is what made me a
billionaire. I value courage so much that if anyone has the
courage to jump in that pool and swim to the other side, I will
give them whatever they want, my land, my house, my money,
Of course, everybody laughed at the challenge and turned to
follow the owner into the house for lunch. Suddenly they heard
a splash. Turning around they saw a guy splashing and thrashing
into he water, swimming for his life as the alligators swarmed after
him. After several death defying seconds, the man made it
unharmed to the other side. The rich billionaire was amazed
but he stuck to his promise.
He said, "You are a man of courage, you can have any thing
you want, house, money, land, etc., whatever you want is yours."
The swimmer, breathing heavily, looked up and said, "I just want
to know who pushed me in the pool."
Siv's thought... Isn't funny? But what's amazing is sometimes the man who got pushed into the pool can relate to tons of people, including me. For us to be able to take action or step into our power and truly realize how much power that EXIST inside! Sometimes we have to be pushed in! But here's what's pivotal... Sometimes no one pushes you in. You won't get to recognize that power. Sometimes in life you have to make the decision. You have to take the initiative to take action. If you don't you'll always have what you have. And that may not be much. There's an old saying that Albert Einstein stated, "The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a deferent result". It's subconscious. Sometimes you have to think differently to take a different action and sometimes you have to act differently to learn to think differently. Results, whether favorable or unfavorable is up to your level of thought and execution.
