Wake up calls and your Inner Voiceposted by in Russ Whitney
Have you ever been at a hotel on a vacation or business trip and asked the front desk to give you a wake-up call? If not, it’s a call that they give you to make sure you get up, get going and don’t miss your flight, or your meeting or whatever it is that’s important for you to accomplish the next day.
In other words, a wake-up call keeps you from getting up late and causing a problem for yourself or others.
Today’s blog is about a different kind of wake-up call, the kind that tells you “hey, there’s a problem in your life and you’d better do something about it before it gets even worse”.
Russ Whitney’s wake-up call came when he was in prison as a teenager, and he realized that his path in life wasn’t exactly leading to joy and prosperity. Prison woke him up to the fact that he was with the wrong people, making the wrong decisions, and desperately needed to change.
There are all sorts of wake-up calls in fact. The DUI a person gets might be the wake-up call they need to realize that they have a problem with alcohol, or witnessing their soon-to-be spouse doing something illegal or immoral a wake-up call that maybe they should re-think their marriage plans.
Losing a job might be the wake-up call that you need to tell you ‘hey, you don’t have job security, so maybe you should start your own business’, while not being able to climb a set of steps without gasping for air is a definite wake-up call telling you that your lifestyle isn’t healthy.
Once you do ‘wake up’, your Inner Voice is going to be a vital connection to the spirituality that you’re going to need to change those bad habits, get back on track and overcome whatever it is that’s negative or damaging in your life.
In fact, you may just look back and see that you’ve missed a few wake-up calls along the way.
Whatever the case may be, don’t ignore them. Now that you’re wide awake, you have to do your best to stay that way.
The good news is that waking up, however painful it might be at first, means that your eyes will be wide open again, maybe for the first time in a long time.
If they are, you’ll be able to use your Inner Voice to help you see things clearly again, and that’s always a good thing.
