So how does one put the wind back in their sail?

It's simple really, and here's the great news. You are the sail and the wind behind it. Yes, you.

Most people set off on their course in life with their sail boat chartered for great destinations. Somewhere along the way the wind seems to die down and they are left struggling to get their sails catching the breeze again.

Often they sail off course or, get stuck in one direction or, tire and give up as they drift out to sea aimlessly and become lost. Perhaps they reach their destination and then don't know where to set sail next.

Putting the wind back in your sail or setting a new course can be hard work, but before long you are sailing again. What once was tough seafaring seems to be gone with the wind.

The problem isn't with our sail, (our dream) it's with the wind (our determination).

It's like we leave our sailboat and jump aboard someone else's in hopes of finding an easier route where we don't have to do all the work, or struggle as much, or set sail again.

Once this happens we find ourselves feeling like the wind has gone from our sail and we wonder where it went. Well..... it went with the other sailboats or we docked and didn't set sail again. No wonder it feels like you're navigating off course; what did you expect?

There are bound to be obstacles on your course - storms, high seas, low tides, rocks, reefs etc. When sailboats have to turn around and go another course or back to port, they are right back out there sailing the deep blue again, whether it be the same route or a different one.

If you have found yourself off course or heading back, don't give up. Set sail again; it's worth the navigation. Why? It's your journey. Your dreams are worth more than the obstacles you might encounter. You can sail right through to your destination and many others as well.

You want to find the smallest breeze and at least get moving.

Ask yourself:

* What is it that keeps me docked?
* What keeps me turning back?
* What has taken the wind out of my sail?
* What do I need to get back on course?

Your boat might have aged; it might need a little fixing. Perhaps it's time to buy a new boat, set a new course or sail the seas with a crew. No matter what has taken the wind out of your sails, it's up to you to put it back and get sailing again.

The destination may be great, but the journey is even better!
Remember , when you Shine, the world shines brighter because of you!
