The first choice in setting your goals and aspirations is deciding where you want to go. Life can lead you anywhere, and everywhere, depending on your objectives.
If we view life as we would any road trip we have taken above the age of 25, we know that the route has to be mapped out to reach our specific destination, and often by a specific time.
There are opportunities that present themselves to us daily. Eventually we must sort out which of these opportunities, chances and breaks are leading in the direction we have chosen, which are leading us away, which are stumbling blocks, and which are just plain old distractions. We must also monitor our inner life. We must ask ourselves questions, often, like: “Is this helping or hurting my cause?” “Am I taking a legitimate break or am I procrastinating?” “Am I doing the deeds or just going through the motions?”
Only we know our true heart and our dearest desires. On top of this we must know ourselves well enough to know when to reign in and when to let loose.
Life will take us where we want to go… if we know where that is and we are willing to put in the actual work to get there.
To your continued success!!!
