Playing The Middle


There are many tried and true CLIPART OF 15424 SMJPGcertainties in this Life.  One that always remains is that one sure-fire way to lead yourself down a path of mediocrity and regret is to “Play The Middle!” You know exactly what I am talking about.  We ALL have been there at times; not ready or willing to fully commit to something and at the same time also not ready to let it go or move on!  This, my friends, is the dreaded state of Playing The Middle! There are many causes; fear of the unknown, doubt, change, uncertainty to name a few! The common denominator here is very easy to see and solve! How can we ever truly know what we are capable of if we DO NOT give our all?! Giving your all to whatever you decide to do allows you to answer all of those what ifs?


When you give your ALL… There is NO time for doubt!


No matter what you choose, give your all! Don’t waste one precious second Playing The Middle! Sadly many of us can get stuck in this position for quite some time and simply go through the motions, it certainly takes strength and at times a wakeup call to snap out of it and decide to commit! There are MANY out there that do not have some of the simplest choices and freedoms that WE are fortunate to experience on a daily basis and Playing The Middle is a direct slap in the face to those that would give anything to have the opportunity to step up to the plate and swing for the fences!


Take some time to think about what you are doing and if you are truly giving your all, ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing, if you can’t answer these questions; it is pretty safe to say that you are Playing The Middle. It is time to make some changes and move on or make some changes and make it happen! There is no sense in wasting anymore of your time or the time of those that are waiting for you to decide if you’re in or out!


Playing The Middle is one of the toughest situations to overcome for many, even after recognizing that you are there it can be difficult to get out! One certainty that remains is that as long as you are Giving Your All and Loving What You Do that you will always find fulfillment and rid yourself of doubt! Give YOUR All, Love What You Do, and GET OUT OF THE MIDDLE… Your Full Potential Is Waiting!
