What I Learned From Getting New Tires‪!‬ Mountain Top Motivation Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

This past week I had a funny experience getting my tires changed that sparked a life lesson solo podcast episode! 

I had waited too long to get my tires changed so I knew I needed to get them changed before I left for our adventure to Yellowstone National Park!

After they were finished I went to pick up the car. 

The moment I left the parking lot, every warning light you could imagine started blinking on my dash board! 

I went back to the tire shop only to find that they had put 3 matching tires and a 4th that was a different size! 

The car was out of balance! 

Once they figured out what happened they were very apologetic, and told me it would never happen again. I was not worried. I have done business with them for a long time. 

They replaced the odd tire and said, "I'm glad your car caught this right away because when a car is out of balance it can create serious damage!" 

It didn't create damage right away but being out of balance for a while would have damaged the car. 

This made me think about our lives. All of us get out of balance from time to time. In fact there are seasons of life where you will be out of balance. 

You are out of balance when you have a big project, you were out of balance during final weeks in college, you are out of balance during the holidays.   

We can do this when the season requires it but if we stay out of balance for too long it will do damage. 

After thinking about it, I am glad this funny experience happened because I got to have this life lesson and reminder. 

Enjoy this episode!
