It’s laying right in front of you flat on the ground. From there… it cannot get any lower.
You stand with your feet right up to the edge of the bar.
In front of you are two poles with notches on them, each notch representing something related to goals or dreams.
You have many options;
You can walk away from your goals and dreams.
You can bend over… pick up the bar and move yourself toward the two poles. (this action alone is sometimes a seemingly huge goal… you can do it)
You can set the bar very low or you can set the bar; high, higher or highest.
I hope you choose to at least pick up the bar and move toward your goals and dreams.
Then I hope you take time to take carefully notice what each notch on the poles represent to you.
Be as specific as you can!
Maybe you start on the first notch? That’s awesome! It’s a start.
Be determined to find a way to clear that bar.
It might take time.
You might have to practice and you might/will fail.
Still, practice and practice more. Do not quit!
Know… you can clear that bar! And, when you clear that bar… Raise it.
You will find each time you clear the bar you will be so excited and even look forward to raising it!
Should you have a fear of heights, don’t worry, you will gradually overcome this fear. You will become more sure and brave each time your clear and raise the bar!
Then one day you will find your arms are raised to their maximum height placing the bar on the highest notch you can possibly reach.
And… when you clear that bar? Look for people that are taller in stature and wisdom that see your abilities and gifts and that will raise the bar even higher.
These people will help you, coach you, encourage you, and give you a leg up!
Go ahead… pick up the bar.
Not because you must but because you are willing.
