Wow! This is amazing. I never thought it would be so easy and move so smoothly.
Is this what you’re thinking, as you move along that path you’re on?
Wait. Hold up. Think for a moment.
Great accomplishments, success and happiness usually come at a cost, leaving disappointments, failures, and life-changing challenges in their wake. So, maybe, just maybe, that smooth and easy path, with no setbacks, obstacles, stumbles, scars, naysayers, … (you know, those usual suspects) is a path that leads nowhere.
Maybe not but maybe, just maybe. Just think about it.
What you discover may cement your determination to keep going. On the other hand, you may unearth things you never considered, things you over-looked in your excitement and zeal, things that inspire you to change your mindset, reassess your goals, reprioritize your plan of action, reevaluate what you may have achieved so far.
In the scheme of things, you have nothing to lose. This Tuesday Thought could serve as a pit stop to reflect, reaffirm, reenergize and keep going. There is a chance though, that it could be just the wakeup call you need to change what’s going on, what you are doing and where you’re headed.
Do I know what I’m talking about? You bet I do. We don’t always get it right. It is not uncommon to set out on a path without all the necessary info or the best course of action. That in itself may not be a failure on our part, we can’t see the future. However, along any path, it is wise to stop and survey the landscape of our lives, analyze the stories we are telling ourselves and weigh all the issues to determine if their are true, viable, beneficial, promising and leading (as far as we can determine) somewhere that we want to be.
So, do yourself a favour and think about that path you’re on.
