Your life matters. You probably already know that. At some level, most people do understand that. But, here is the problem. Most people do not understand how much their life matters. The reason that most of us do not realize the full extent to which our life matters is because we can’t see much beyond our nose. That sounds harsh. But, for the average person, it is true. I’ll explain more. But, here is what I want you to take away from this assertion. It doesn’t have to be that way. You were born to be a ladder that connects yourself and others to something transcendent. Until you do, your ladder will never be fully extended.
In my garage, I have a fiberglass extension ladder. Ladders are great metaphors for life’s journey. Just as the rungs of the ladder will take us either up or down, so is the lesson of life.
Which direction are your steps taking you? We can think of your best you or your ultimate dream as being at the top of the ladder. We can think of your comfort zone that comes naturally to you as being the first rung on the ladder.
