I woke up that morning to the sound of the phone beeping. As a matter of fact, it was the beeping that woke me up.
I took the call groggily and turned round to go back to sleep. Then I noticed the time was past 6am and I should have been up much earlier.
My first response to that information from the clock was, “I am still asleep.”
How could I still be asleep when I had taken a call and seen clearly that it was well past my wake up time?
But that is how we sometimes run our lives. We refuse to wake up and face reality, even when we know it time to do so.
We walk through life half asleep and end up waking up well after we have missed vital deadlines, and fallen into trouble.
I see it happen everyday:
The student who becomes serious after failing an exam they had the capacity to pass; the business man who sits up when he has “slept” through the fall of his corporation; the distressed man who begins to run helter skelter when his ignored wife moves out of the home…
The list is endless.
Some people say, experience is the best teacher but does the experience have to be yours?
The answer is “No!”
Learn from others’ mistakes and shape your life. Walk awake through your life. Make right choices, and follow through.
It is past your wake up time my friend,get up and brew your own coffee!
