Did you know that Life is just like an Airplane?

What if we were to view our lives like an airplane? In this case, we would assume that God is the ultimate air traffic controller correct?

Now, to move forward each day, we must create and runway that is free of other traffic. This traffic that I am referring to represents the negative energy that pollutes our minds. We must develop a free and clear runway in order to get ready to take off.

Now funny enough, I am actually very afraid of heights but I love to fly. So after much confusing deliberation on this very screwed up analogy, I came to the conclusion that I am indeed scared of heights but I love to fly because flying is not what I’m scared of, crashing is. Now there is a big difference and once I was able to sort this out, it made my runway that much easier to develop.

The runway is so important because if we have any doubt that our flight which represents our body, mind and spirit is not going to actually lift off the earth and soar, then we have failed no matter the preparation even before we got started.

Now once we actually take off and we are flying at say 5000 feet which by flying standards is barely off the ground, all is smooth and calm. But then confidence sets in as it should and we begin to ascend higher, and ever higher.

Now let me stop right here, let’s just pause for a second.

Have you ever heard a pilot say after the plane takes off this message. “Ladies and gentleman please excuse the rough turbulence that we are experiencing at this incredible height of 5000 feet. I’m sure that we will be able to get through this rough patch shortly”

No, that would be ridiculous, you are barely off the ground, and the wheels of the plane haven’t even tucked themselves underneath yet. There is no turbulence at 5000 feet.

However, as you begin to soar to 30,000 feet and 40,000 feet, you now begin to encounter some rough patches. Clouds, wind, atmosphere, yes it’s bound to get bumpy up here. And so is your life.

But fear not, you are prepared because you have the tools that will plow through this turbulence and advance you to your desired destination with no doubt, fear or anxiety.

You see, the higher we soar, the more we will find resistance to our destination. But here’s the deal, who or what is blocking you? Simply put, it’s you and your negative mind.

So let me ask you a question. When someone says that you can’t do something, I have two points I want to address. First, why are you listening to them in the first place and second, why would you ever agree with their pessimistic outlook, because, more often than not, the person that is telling you that you can’t is really only confirming what you have already convinced yourself.
So what if the next time you heard someone say you can’t and you understood that this voice isn’t real and that it’s all in your mind, then what would you do?
You see, the only thing that is stopping you from soaring is you. Our minds tend to validate the untruthful word of People, Places and things just so we can justify the doubt, fear, and eventually the failure that is bound to take place. And then this pattern repeats itself over and over again. This is the truth on why you are still stuck!

When you love yourself enough to trust yourself with the truth, that you are unstoppable, then and only then can you take off and rise like never before.

To be clear, it’s not enough to like yourself or to pretend to love yourself. No, this will never work because the forces of our negative universe are 100 times stronger than your daily positive attitude..

The shift of lack minded thinking must be removed and replaced completely and daily. This my friends can only happen once you have a complete understanding of why you do or don’t do the things you want to do. In other words, it is imperative that you engage in one of the most powerful yet scariest things in the world.

Get to know yourself!

In life, you can never fix what you don’t understand, therefore, learning to understand who you are, why you are and where you are, is the only way to get to where you desire to go.

Are you ready to take off? Great~

I highly recommend my latest book “Do you know who you are” It is an easy read yet profoundly honest about how to soar to your highest of abilities and dreams. Take this opportunity and invest in yourself now.

You can learn more here.

Please leave me your feedback as I love hearing from so many of you each day. Each one of you is a sincere blessing to me and I want nothing more than to see you soar!

Blessings!

    I tried to fly by me. I couldn’t because I have no wings. But I believe I can fly.In many ways I can and I will. I have gone through mindset setbacks before. It’s a horrible state to be in. And I don’t know what level I am on right now. I can get higher and never stop. That’s what you said. Furthermore, I am a friend of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is the airplane. Thanks pastor I’ve got it now.

    P/s. I will get all the books when the storms clear out. You know what I mean?

    Pastor “B,”

    That was a fantastic analogy of the plane and us. However, I have never seen myself that way at all, because I soar with the eagles. I don’t have to be concerned about crashing, and the eagle’s spend little effort flying to higher heights because they ride the currents of the wind. They spread their massive wings and glide with a regal attitude, which I take upon myself. After all, I am a child of the Living King! I am at the right hand of Christ, and being on the right side signifies that I have all the power and authority that He has.

    Thank you for showing me another way to see myself. I have already ordered your book and the CD’s where you are reading the book. I am looking forward to listening to your soothing voice as I follow along with you.

    Blessings!

    Folks always tell you what you can’t do, who you won’t find and ultimately always define you without even knowing your “substance”. I love your inspirational messages for sure. Forgiveness, gratitude and love definitely sums it all up for Life….indeed!! Thank you much!
