Time To Turn Around
Do you ever feel like you have hit a dead end in your life? Does it seem that no matter what you say, do or try nothing seems to be going your way? Does it seem that everyone else is succeeding and on the way up while you are stuck in a dead end job, with dead end relationships, dead end fitness and dead end finances? Does it seem that everyone else is living exciting, fulfilling, fun filled lives?
Are you living a dead end life?
If you feel that way, maybe you are.
If you are leading a dead end life why are you?
Only you can answer that question and only you can put yourself on the path leading away from the dead end.
I suggest exploring the adventurous life.
What is the adventurous life? Enter the Art of Adventure
Art of Adventure was an idea born of the experience and realization that occurred after reading the following quote by Wilferd A. Peterson. We believe Wilfred Peterson can point all of us in the direction of living an adventurous life. Here is what he had to say about it.
“A man (or we say woman of child) practices the art of adventurewhen he heroically faces up to life; when he has the daring to open doors to new experiences and to step boldly forth to explore strange horizons, When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies. When he has the curiosity to experiment – to test and try new ways of living and thinking. When he has the flexibility to adjust and adapt himself to the changing patterns of life. When he refuses to seek safe places and easy tasks and has, instead, the courage to wrestle with the toughest problems. When he has the moral stamina to be steadfast in the support of those men in whom he has faith and those causes in which he believes. When he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints. When he has the nerve to move out of life’s shallows and venture forth into the deep. When he keeps his heart young, his expectations high and never allows his dreams to die. When he concludes that a rut is only another name for the grave and that the only way to stay out of the ruts is by living adventurouslyand staying vitally alive every day of his life.”
If you are as captured by the above quote as we were and feel compelled to live an adventurous life, then we ask you to join us.
Exploring the Adventurous life is not just about adventures like climbing the highest mountain on earth or sailing around the world, it is about as Wilferd A. Peterson put it, opening doors to new experiences, exploring strange horizons, breaking the chain of routine and opening your mind to new ways of thinking and living. The path is not for everyone, it is the “path less travelled” but for many it has “made all the difference.”
