Out of the rut

Just because you’ve always done it, doesn’t mean you must continue. Be willing to change, and you’ll open up a whole new universe of possibilities.

It can be easy to become stuck in a rut. And when you’re in a rut, the only things you can see are the other things in that rut.

Yes, it takes a little effort and courage to climb out of that rut. Yet when you do, the view expands tremendously.

Go somewhere new, and countless opportunities suddenly appear. Do something differently, and all sorts of great new possibilities spring up.

If something is working out well for you, by all means stick with it. Yet also be open to new and different people, places, methods and things.

Energize your mind and your spirit on a continuing basis. Climb out of your rut, and take a look around at the big, wide, beautiful world.

— Ralph Marston
