Where Are You Looking?
The other morning I had the TV on in the background while I was packing for a long trip, when I heard a guy talking about how he walked a tightrope across Niagra Falls.
Sounded pretty impressive to me. But what I found even more impressive was his answer to the morning show host’s question, “how do you keep your balance?” That’s when the tightrope walker shared how he never looks down at the wire he’s walking on because it’s too unstable. Instead, he focuses on the end of the wire where it’s solid.
It caused me to ask myself, how many times am I looking down at the unstable wire in front of me instead of the solid and stable place off in the distance? How many times do I fall off the wire because I’m looking down instead of ahead?
Question: Have there been times in your life when you focused on the unstable instead of the stable?
