Are you focused? Are your everyday choices guided by values that stem from deep convictions? If your answer to both questions is yes, it is likely that you know what you want, and know where you are going. Then your destination will not be mobile.
Living without values and convictions, results to lack of focus. There can be no focus when what you want is constantly changing. It is like going on a journey where you keep changing your destination everyday. You will never arrive.
Sadly, many of us live out our their days travelling life to a mobile destination.
In many ways we put a leash around our necks. We choose the ‘safety’ and certainty of the Harbour over the uncertainty and imagined dangers of the ocean. In the process, we limit ourselves and underestimate our capabilities.
When you choose to remain in the harbour, you only get what comes to you, which is sadly, not always much. However, when you venture out, in spite of your fears, there is no limit to the things you can achieve.
- Read that book.
- Write that book.
- Start/ resume that workout.
- Take that break/ rest/ vacation.
- Work on that idea.
Venture out of the harbour, if you want to make the most everyday.
You are doing something by not doing anything about a thing. I couldn’t agree more with Francine Rivers.
As it is popularly said. you plan to fail when you fail to plan. The common thing between ‘plan to fail’ and ‘fail to plan’ is ‘plan’, as a verb, not a noun.
Whatever you do, or refuse to do, you are taking action. Either progressive or regressive.
What would you rather do?
