Have you ever been in the HOV/carpool lane, chugging behind someone that’s inexplicably slow while others in the regular lanes are speeding past you?
It’s a frustrating feeling! We all know that the carpool lane isn’t a license to speed, but going faster than everyone else is usually one of the perks.
Why do people have to mess it up like that!?
We feel a similar frustration when a spouse, parent, or friend slows us down from progressing in life as quickly as we’d like.
Maybe they have a weakness that leaves us feeling like we can’t move on without them, like we can’t get out of that slow carpool lane and go with the speed of traffic.
I have felt like that.
For years, I wanted to progress in areas of spirituality, personal development, and emotional strength. But I let other people’s negative influence suck all the power out of me, and I didn’t have the energy to go around them.
Thanks to my own life coach, I realized that I wasn’t stuck behind them forever.
Even carpool lanes have sections where you can exit. I realized that I, too, could go around these people without letting them slow me down.
I developed a heart-centered vision of how I wanted to live my life. As I learned to fight for my dreams and my progression, I snuck out of that carpool lane and zoomed right past those that were slowing me down.
And the good part? I thought I would feel guilty for leaving them behind.
But I didn’t. Not for a minute.
As I worked on my own self-improvement, I found a comfortable pace for me. I am able to pass others when I need to. I am able to chug along in the slow lane when I just need the extra time.

And it feels fantastic!
