I’ve been going through some of that, and so I decided to share that with you on this week’s podcast.
Sometimes we discover we are not where we’d like to be, or who we’d like to be, or perhaps how we’d like to be. We take an honest look out ourselves and are displeased with the current outcome and impending consequences should we not change.
I’ve been critiquing my life and behaviors, and have had to reprioritize several key areas of my life. One has been my time spent podcasting. So it was put on the back burner, while more important things were put on the front burners. And that is what needs to happen in life. Now as I have made some corrections, I can start shifting some more attention to podcasting again. Life happens, and we have to responsibly respond.
It is a good thing for a person to step back and look at where they are in their road map of life. But knowing where you are is not enough. You also need to know the direction you are heading. But that is not enough either. What is really important is knowing the destination that direction will eventually lead you to. Do you want to go there? Or are you just going with the flow? Or maybe you just don’t know where you’d like to land?
All of us have boarded the plane of life, but how many are consciously determining our destinations and arrival times. We do it when we plan vacations, so why don’t more people do it for their everyday life… Thinking and planning 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, 50 years ahead?
Well, for me I realized I need to make some course corrections or else I would be heading towards a destination (aka destiny) I did not want.
So, I’ve had to shift my focus and reprioritize my life. I’ve changed many small, daily life details, so that over time my big life’s goals will be accomplished. I’ve made a course correction, and my hope is that this podcast will help you do the same should you realize that there are things in your life that you need to change as well.
Unfortunately, there is much of life which is not in our control. But fortunately, there are three things about ourselves we can learn to control… Our Thoughts, Speech, and Actions. These three things are the rudders for our ship, and can help us change course despite what life throws at us. Utilize them as best you can, and they will steer you toward your better life.
