The difference between “Stuck in a Rut” Or being “In a Groove”…







Sometimes the difference between a successful week, month, or year can be very subtle.  Recently there was a funny commercial made where a guy is “stuck in a rut” but thought he was actually “In A Groove”.  This happens to even the most successful people, where we get into a pattern that is comfortable, but not necessarily productive.  It is far too easy to settle for routine rather than push for results.  Next time you find yourself doing the same things on a daily basis comfortably, while not getting the results you desire, change things up a bit.  Go to bed a little earlier, or possibly a little later, get up a little earlier, add some variety to your daily meditation, goal setting, exercise, because when we truly get into a groove, much like the photo above of an Olympic Luge run, we can go further, faster, longer, while maximizing every aspect of what we do.  Here’s to staying out of the rut, and all of us finding our groove!

W.J. Vincent II has spent the last 20 years of his life building businesses from start-up to success in fields as varied as Real Estate, Technology, and Environmental Health. In January 2012, Natalia, his wife of 13 years, tragically passed away, her body having given in to her short but dramatic three-month battle with a brain tumor. Her sudden passing left W.J. a widowed father of a 1-year old baby girl and 4-year old boy of his own, along with a 12-year old boy and 15-year old girl he had been helping his mother-in-law to raise due to her battle with multiple sclerosis. Faced with a challenge greater than any he had known, W.J. was able to find strength and inspiration from the Bible. There were many miracles and messages that saw him through the darkest moments of his life.
