The Way It Was…(the eggshell sandwich)

So many people are stuck in the way it was. It haunts us. It keeps us small. It is the land where our saboteurs thrive. It is the land of the eggshell sandwich.

People who live in fear do not make noise...for the intruder will hear them and come in for the kill. As a result, we end up walking on eggshells. Every day, all day. After all that walking, we get callouses on our feet, so we don't feel the sharp edges any more. We tell ourselves instead that it is a comfortable carpet.

Every day we make more eggshells...then we repeat. Sooner than later, we end up eating eggshell sandwiches because that is all we have in the house.

When you're ready to say, "Enough!", and stand up to the intruder in your life, it will be scary. And you may have gotten so malnourished from all the eggshells, that you will find it difficult to muster the courage to take a stance.

When you're there - ready to break the oppressive, outdated mold of yesterday - that's when it is time to get someone in your corner.

It's lonely at the top, it's lonely at the bottom, and it is lonely in the middle. The middle is where you have likely forgotten that you are even alive.

That "someone in your corner" is your coach. Your coach is your sparring partner. Your coach sees your potential. Your coach will prepare you for battle. Most importantly, your coach is waiting to welcome the real you back to your life. In fact, that is the only thing your coach cares about.

If you're ready to meet yourself, go out and get a coach. The way it was no longer works.

And that's just the way it is.
