Seeing What You Never Saw Before

Have you ever bought a new car and then afterwards you started to see the same car everywhere? You were seeing what you never saw before.

Let me explain.

Last week a friend of mine told me he and a few of his friends jumped off this bridge. I had some trouble figuring out what bridge he was talking about.

Now I knew the area because I drive by it everyday, and it is on the way to my office. After my friend tried to explain it to me, I figured I knew what bridge he was talking about.

A few days ago, my friend was talking about how someone had died from jumping off the bridge. I once again asked him to clarify which bridge he had jumped off, because now he was telling me something different.

I still was not hundred percent sure what bridge he had jumped off. It really is not that important to know what bridge he jumped off, but stay with me because it will all make sense.

Now I was still in a bit of confusion. I had no idea what bridge he was talking about, but I figured we were still talking about the same bridge. I just figured my friend was lucky not to have gotten himself killed.

Well, later, when I was driving by the same street, I started to tell my wife that the bridge I thought my friend had jumped off was the wrong one. I asked her if she knew of some pedestrian bridge around here. She looked right over and said there it is.

I looked over and there it was: a BIG pedestrian bridge. I could not believe it! Of all the times I drove right by the bridge I never saw it.

This is a great example of how we sometimes don't see things that are right in front of us. Some people will say, no good money opportunities come my way, I can't seem to get more business, and I can't seem to get ahead. I can't, I can't I can't...

Even if my wife had never shown me the bridge, I might have eventually seen it. However with her help, I saw it today. Having a life coach is just like having someone point out things that we never saw before. My wife helped open my eyes to something I had never seen before. Could I have found it myself? Sure, eventually. But for the last year I have been driving down this same road and never saw it.

How many times have you heard someone say they are going to accomplish a goal, or start living their dreams, and years go by? When they have everything they need to accomplish their goals and dreams NOW. But it may take someone, like a life coach, to get them to see what has been right in front of them all along.
