If you don't know where you are going, how can you expect to get there?
Basil S. Walsh
The world is swarming with all sorts of people desperately wanting to make it all the way to the top; wishful individuals who long to sample the very best life has to offer. And while these hopeful souls can hardly wait to change the direction of their lives, the majority of these folks have no earthly idea how theyre going to make it happen. No clue whatsoever.
Although they dearly want to make something truly extraordinary of their lives, they never take the time to figure out exactly where they want their lives to take them or how they are going to get there. In fact, most people dont have a handle on where they are right this minute, other than they would like to be virtually anywhere but here. Is it any small wonder that so many are so dissatisfied with the direction they are headed, worried sick that they will never really get anywhere worth going?
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.
John Pierpont Morgan
How about you? Are you completely satisfied with where you are in life right now and even more importantly, where you are headed as well? If you are like most of us, there are some things that you are happy about, some areas of your life that could stand a little improvement and then there are those other aspects that could use a complete overhaul from top to bottom. In short, very few of us are totally satisfied with our present situation. And thats only natural.
There is something very special about human beings; something special indeed. Inside each of us beats the invincible heart of a champion, a supercharged source of unyielding strength and power. And its this captivating force that drives us to be better than we are, better than we sometimes believe we can be.
And then theres that raring to go free-spirit within that urges us to test the waters and to boldly sail into the unknown just beyond the horizon. That winning spirit wants to explore new worlds, wants to uncover new opportunities and wants to take us anywhere weve ever dreamed of going if we will just give it that chance. Weve got to give it that chance! And that means not standing pat, being willing to let go of where you are right now.
We must risk going too far to discover just how far we can go.
In order to change where you are at this very moment and where youre going from this point forward, you are going to need to roll the dice and take some chances. Hey, doesnt it make sense that youre going to have to make some changes, maybe even some really big changes, in order to find out how far you can go? You bet it does. But so what? How will you get where you have always wanted to go if youre not willing to get up
Its oh so easy to get all cozy in lifes easy chair; where you get comfortable just doing the same old stuff, day after ho-hum day. And while you may feel safe and secure in that so-called comfy zone, is that where you want to stay for the rest of your life? Do you want to take your life to the next level or simply level out? As unbelievable as it seems, the overwhelming majority will choose the latter, needlessly snoozing their lives away. But you wont.
Knowing where you're going is all you need to get there.
Weve all envisioned ourselves living our dream life at least a thousands times, seeing ourselves living that picture perfect life in crystal clear detail, doing what we were born to do. Weve held this vision in our minds over and over again, playing and replaying the mental picture until it has become indelibly etched into our psyche. Guess what? This picture is WHERE YOURE GOING; where you are destined to live out the rest and the best of your life. And best of all, youre almost there.
If your life could perhaps use a little more sizzle, a little more spark then all you need to do is simply follow your dream. And if you would dearly love to take your God given talents and fashion a lifetime of achievement around them then all you need to do is passionately pursue your hopes and desires with every ounce of energy you can generate.
If you would like your life to take on more meaning and heightened intensity, making each and every day the best you have ever lived then all you need to do is chase your dreams until you find that golden pot at the end of the rainbow. As Denis Waitley so aptly put it, We've got to have a dream if we are going to make a dream come true.
You know where you want to go; you always have. After all, youve seen it in your mind and felt it in your heart day after day for oh so long. So why wait one minute longer?
Are you ready to go somewhere, some place that's definitely worth going to right this very minute? You better believe you are! So why not get going right now?
The Bottom Line: Always make sure that youre going exactly where youve always dreamed of going.
