Have you ever participated in a race? Running, biking, skiing, motocross, whatever. When the start gun fires or the flag drops, you GO, right? No hesitation. Whether you’re at the front of the pack, in the middle, or near the back, you go because you know where you’re going.
Let’s say you’re considering a daring next step in your life. (First, congrats on daring to believe there’s more!) When opportunity comes knocking, you GO, right? No hesitation? Or does the stuff in your life get in the way?
Let me rephrase that: Do you let the stuff in your life get in the way? And why is someone else holding the start gun or dropping the flag instead of you?
“In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.” ~ Robert Heinlein
Cliché or not, life is a journey, not a race. Consider today a fresh new step on your personal journey.
Where do you want to go from here?
