lessons from a snowblower
Spirit used another great analogy today to teach another life lesson:
My dad was over the other day....he needed to use my heavy duty snow blower to make a path to get something in my driveway.
I told him that i was having problems with it the other day when i had to try to plow through some pretty big drifts. i told him the wheels kept spinning and i could not get it to move forward without it getting stuck in a pile. this is a heavy duty industrial snow plow so it really should have been a breeze! it was anything but.
after he was finished, took him 3 minutes by the way, he asked what speed i had it in ( speeds 1-6)? i told him 5.
i'm no fool. i hate the snow and cold. my goal is to to get out there and get 'er done and get back in the house. the faster the better.
he said "well there is your problem. i had it in 1 or 2 and it worked great. i plowed right through". as i stood there feeling stupid, lol, he explained that if i have the speed too fast, all i would do is spin the tires because it had no torque behind it to make it move...DUH!!! it needs to be in 1 -2 to get through the big stuff! makes sense to me...the slower the speed the more "ENERGY" it would have behind it. it would be able to grip and move at a steady yet slower pace...therefore allowing me to use less of my energy and more of the snow blowers...THUS allowing me to finish FASTER AND EASIER!!!!
so tonight in a message to a client, spirit used that to explain to my client that she was going to fast and spinning her wheels. if she wanted to move through the tough stuff in her life, she has to slow down and allow it to move with more torque...more behind you to make it move through even the biggest of piles. the faster the speed the slower you go! the slower you go the more distance you will cover more efficiently and with less energy.
i thought about all the times in my life that i tried too hard to push through the big stuff. i wanted to go fast to get it done and move on...and ended up getting nowhere fast! awwww.....now i get it! :)
what a great analogy! i love the way spirit works....so many simple yet great messages to help us in any way they can!
if it will only snow one more time... ill try my snow blower out in speeds1 or 2.
now i know how to plow a nice little path through even the heaviest of storms! thanks dad!
happy snowplowing! :)
