Stay in your lane. Sounds simple enough right? Well, for many of us, it can be a challenge to stay in our lane. But what does that mean "to stay in your lane"?
Since Shakespeare stated in Hamlet that "brevity is the soul of wit", let's be as concise as possible: To stay in your lane means:
- Beginning each day with gratitude.
- Ending each day with gratitude.
- Saying "no" when it's appropriate.
- Saying "yes" when it's appropriate.
- Holding yourself accountable for your actions.
- Holding others accountable when it pertains to you and you only.
- Keeping your thoughts free of clutter.
- Keeping your thoughts focused on your goals.
- Treating others as you wish to be treated.
- Using your "gifts" to the best of your ability.
- Forgiving yourself and others.
- Not judging yourself or others.
- Loving yourself.
- Loving others as you would love yourself.
- Staying the course of what you know to be true for you and you only.
These few "lane stayers" should be enough to keep you focused on your lane. It seems to me, if we used any of these on a daily basis, we would have no problem staying "between our lines" as we travel our paths.
As a matter of fact, we would become so focused between our lines, we would most likely be more helpful to others as we would find that our path is free of "bumper to bumper" problems and unnecessary aggravations and congestion.
Until the next time,
