"Every exit is an entrance somewhere else."
Ever get the feeling that you're cruising on the super highway to no place in particular? If you've been there, you know it's not a great feeling. You get this sinking sensation that you're not getting anywhere you really want to go. Even though you're busy living your life, going through your regular routine every day, doing the things you have to do, you're not all that fired up about the direction you're heading.
Your life feels like it has lost its spark, its sizzle. Your passion, your purpose, your reason for being isn't what it once was. Instead of living the life you've always dreamed about, your life has turned into a mind numbing grind.
You'd like to add a little more pop, a little more pizzazz. Maybe even a change of pace, a change of place. You need more zest, more enthusiasm, more of just about everything right about now. You feel trapped - and want a way out.
You need a super sized dose of WOW.
"It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction."
Continuing down a dead end road doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it? Yet many people do exactly that. They keep doing the same things, getting the same results - and keep hoping things will get better.
But hoping doesn't cut the mustard.
Getting off the familiar, well beaten trail scares the pants off of a lot of people. In fact, this fear factor is precisely why so many stay on their current path regardless of how far off course they wander. While they want to do better, in fact need to do better, they never muster the courage to make the changes they need to make. And they remain on the road to nowhere.
Don't make this mistake.
"It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go."
The only way to make things better is to... well, make things better. If you don't like where you are or the direction you're presently headed, you've got to change what you're doing - and change it right now. You've got to get off of the bumpy road that's taking you nowhere. And get off right now. So why not take the next exit and see where it takes you?
The minute you stop doing the same old things, the same old way, the same old results go away. By changing the pace, changing the scenery, changing virtually everything you do, you'll start seeing all sorts of changes taking place.
Your mood starts to perk up, going from discontented and unfulfilled to cheerful and optimistic. You outlook starts to improve, going from somber and hopeless to positive and upbeat. And you start to feel better about yourself, better than you have felt in years. Best of all, you start to feel better about the direction your life is heading.
"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading."
So what happens if your new direction isn't all that hot? Or it's not getting you where you want to go? Just go find another road to travel on. And if that one doesn't pan out, find another. Maybe even another. Keep looking until you find the road that's right for you. Who knows; that right road might be over the next hill or just around the next corner. But one thing is for certain, if you're willing to keep searching, you're going to find it.
Never forget that you're in charge of where you are going and how you are going to get there. It's not your family and friends, not your coworkers or peers. It's you - and you alone. If you don't like where you're headed - change directions. If you don't like how things are going - change what you're doing. The only true path to happiness is the one that allows you to be who you are, to do what you want to do and to live the life you desire.
So get out there and find YOUR road to success. Then and only then will you be headed in the right direction.
The Bottom Line: When a change is needed, make it and get on down the road.
