"One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."
What are you looking for in life? Could it be the acquisition of material possessions, like a nicer home or a fancier car? Perhaps you're searching for a better job or contemplating a change in professions. Or maybe you're simply seeking something a little deeper, like a little more peace and tranquility in your life.
Regardless of what you may be looking for, there is one thing for certain. Looking isn't nearly enough. If you are actually going to get whatever you have set your sights on having, being or doing, it's going to take a lot more than merely gazing out over the horizon.
You're going to have to get going and make something happen.
"I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time."
Like the aimless shopper who habitually tells the store clerk, 'I'm just looking,' so goes the story with many of us. We look and look some more for the right path to pursue. We look here and over there, we look just about everywhere for the right direction to take. And we keep on looking, never actually finding exactly what we are looking for.
Yet the only place we ever need to look to find our way is deep within ourselves. Our heart will tell us where we need to go. Our mind will show us the way. We simply need to listen to what they have to say... and then we need to act.
"One must look with the heart."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
All of the strength, determination and power we'll ever need to make our dreams come true emanates deep down in our hearts and souls. That's right; we've got everything we need right now to get anything we have ever set our hearts on achieving.
But it first begins by looking within. By clearly picturing whatever it is we want to achieve in crisp, concise, dazzling detail in our minds, we paint a mental snapshot so sensory rich that it almost leaps out in front of us. We can see it, feel it, almost touch it. It's right there, right there for the taking. Now it's time to act!
"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
Henry David Thoreau
Grab the picture and immediately begin pursuing this vibrant image of how your life could be and should be and make it a reality. Don't worry about what you don't have (you have plenty) or what others say you can't do (don't listen to them), just jump in with both feet and pursue your goals with all the passion and purpose you can muster.
Instead of looking, you'll be doing. Instead of doing without, you'll be doing within. And you'll be having the time of your life as well. Rather than watching others have all the fun, you'll soon be up to your elbows in all of the fun you can handle. In fact, your life will be better than you have ever dreamed it could be.
Best of all, your search for the ever elusive dream life you have always imagined yourself living will be over at last.
The Bottom Line: Stop looking, start doing and you'll start living life the way it was meant to be lived.
