Lessons From Surfers

I was on the beach in Badalona a few months back watching the surfers catch the waves, having never surfed myself I tried to imagine what it must have been like for them (see below). This year, 2014, I´ll try surfing!

Its like surfers riding the waves, waiting for that ultimate opportunity, grasping it with all the energy they can muster for once it passes you don't know how long you will have to wait for the next ride.
Stepping into the unknown, excitement, fear of what may happen, anticipation and fear of falling off that board and having to start again.

However no matter how many times you fall nobody can take the positive learnings away from you that you have gained along the way.

Each insight bringing you closer to your desired outcome, the joy of experiencing that ride, the sense of pride that you have achieved it, the sense of wonder of being connected to nature in such a powerful way.

The wind in your hair, the power of the waves, the sense of freedom... not knowing how long the journey will last because that's what life is about.

Enjoying the ride no matter what. 

What are you avoiding that will help you achieve your desired outcome?

What are you gaining by avoiding it?

How can you fulfill that intent in a positive, proactive way?
