Here is one question that begins to surface for many of us as we find ourselves at the beginning of a new year. It is a very important question that you should ask yourself: "Where am I going?"
If you follow your current direction, where will you be in a year? In five years? In ten? And is that where you really want to go? Be honest with yourself.
Someone once said that the best way to predict the future is to get a very clear idea of what is happening now. We need to do the same thing in our lives.
If you ask yourself this question and you don't like the answer very much, it is important to realize that you have the power to change your direction. You can do it today. In fact, you can do it this very minute, if you really want to.
All that is required is that you choose to change with all your heart, and then you follow through on that commitment with appropriate action, one day at a time.
You don't have to know exactly where you are going or precisely how you will get there. But you do have to have a good sense of when you are moving in the right direction. And how do you know when that is happening? Slow down, take time to reflect, and ask yourself, "Does this feel right?" Then listen for the answer, and make any necessary corrections as soon as possible.
