60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday: What if Life Grabbed You With Both Hands?

Hello to you listening in Bywong, Australia!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday with your host, Diane Wyzga.
I remember taking part in a 2-week Outward Bound (Canada) mountaineering trip high in the Canadian Rockies with 5 other women. In pairs we climbed up and then rappeled down the rock face of a near vertical mountain wall. The guides were far above us, out of sight, having anchored the ropes. With fear in her voice my climbing partner froze partway up her ascent and cried out: “I can’t find anything to hold on to.” Time passed. From far above us a voice replied, “Grab it with both hands…” It worked! She trusted the guides, their advice and herself sufficient to climb all the way to the top and descend the rock face. I can still see her triumphant smile when her feet touched rocky soil again.
Question: What if Life grabbed you with both hands and offered you an unexpected opportunity? Would you trust what Life was offering you? How would you know? What would motivate you to find out and take it?
