If you want to walk on water, get out of the boat. Just what does this mean?
Many people go through life wishing and hoping and never realizing you have
to actually do something to make your dreams come true, and give your

Although it worked for Isaac Newton,you cannot experience life and hope achieve your
highest potential by sitting under a tree and letting apples fall on your head . Many people today think they are entitled to a wholesome life and all the trappings it brings. I
have news for you. The world doesn’t owe you a living, you have to go
out and get it, the same way the rest of us achieved whatever level of
success we have.
Regardless of what you may think, most of us worked hard for a lifetime to enjoy
the blessings of life we may have, and in spite of whatever hardships we
are presently enduring , we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Life is meant to be lived, not by sitting idly around and letting someone
else do all the work and take all the chances. You have to get out of
the boat and swim for yourself. The mind and soul needs to be
continuously challenged so it can grow and evolve.
Nothing is accomplished when a being lives in a society where everything is
taken care of for them and there are no challenges or reasons to advance

excel in life. thus they become depressed and angry, taking their anger
out on the very people who try to coddle them by giving them everything
they desire with no strings attached.
No good deed goes unpunished.
Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that all men are created
equal, this alludes to all mankind , not a particular gender or race.

abilities. It has nothing to do with having an equal lifestyle or
income, that is determined solely by desire and ability.
When inspiration and desire induce one to excel in life and create
prosperity in their lives , a perfect society will afford the
opportunity for them to accomplish all they can, but it will not
automatically give it to them, or punish them unfairly when they
The future is promised to no one, we each create our own destiny, if you
decide to sit calmly in the boat, you have to be content as to where the
Captain takes you, only when you get out of the boat and walk across
the water of opportunity will you realize your true lot in life.
