Take a Cue From Airplanes and Take Off Against the Wind #inspiration #motivation



Have you ever had one of those days when the whole world seems to be plotting against you? 

You oversleep, spill coffee on your suit, miss the bus/subway, get stuck in traffic, get to work late, computer blows up, etc.  The world is not your oyster on this day and you cry out in frustration, “WHY???”

I have had these days and so has everyone else.  It’s like the world is against you and you are alone in your suffering.  You are not alone; you only have shift your perspective.  We all will have days like this.

What do you do when this happens?

Me, I think about the mighty airplane. Airplanes are wonderful strong machines and they are the most popular mode of transportation these days.  They can take us anywhere in the world.  They are the ticket to a new life, a vacation, an oasis or a business meeting.  They are made from heavy durable materials and the coolest thing about them is that they have to take off against the wind.  Yes, against the wind!

We could learn a lot about dealing with life’s twists and turns from the airplane.  Life is an adventure and sometimes we don’t like what’s around the corner.  We cringe and curse at the world.  We say it’s too much to handle.  But I say, in order to overcome those misadventures, we need to soar above them.

So the next time the world throws you a curve ball, close your eyes and imagine yourself to be a 747 airplane.  Aim your aircraft against the wind and take off.  Soon you’ll be flying high in the sky and smiling once again! 🙂

What do you do when the world gangs up on you?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  If you liked this post, please share using the buttons below!

  1. Can you believe I’m having one of those days today. I’m in St. Louis on business traveling to Syracuse, New York. No, that’s not the bad luck. It started with me turning the wrong way on a one way street in downtown St. Louis, then I missed the exit for the rental car return, then when I finally got to the rental car return, the sky opened up and I got soaked. Then I checked my two bags that I’m schlepping around for my two week trip. I left my license at the counter. Then I went through security only to find out I was in the wrong concourse. I travel 45 weeks a year. I should know better. I’m hoping the pilot on my two remaining flights today are having a better day and take off in the right direction with respect to the wind.
