Which Direction Are You Going?
Life is in perpetual motion. That is its nature.
I struggled with clarity for a long time. The past few years have been a study in gaining clarity. I gained clarity about my purpose…and got stuck. I gained clarity about writing my book…and got stuck. I finished and published my book…and got stuck.
Often we say things like…
“I’m stuck in a rut”
“I feel bogged down”
“I can’t get any traction.”
And honestly, that’s where I have been for the last 8-9 months. Just trying to figure it out.
Of course, these are simply metaphors used to describe how we feel at any given moment (and I’ve been there…and said all three of the above, and others beside). If you have been reading this blog over all these months, then you have had a front-row seat to my “stuckiness”.
The truth is that we are not really “stalled out” in life. Our life is just going in a direction in which we do not want to go or in a manner in which we feel out of control.
When it comes to living the life you dream for yourself, take a look at the direction you’re headed.
Heading In The Right Direction
Directing your life in the right direction requires some discipline, skill and even a bit of blind luck–if you really believe in such a thing!
That is why I have been touting the changes coming to this blog. I love this site and I love each of you…but a blog is not a business. It won’t pay bills or buy food.
It is a fantastic tool for communication; however, and I love the dialogue this site affords you and me. The truth is that I haven’t been entirely honest. But that is changing as I inject greater authenticity into the work I do here (and more honesty about why I do it)
I guarantee that when you align your life in a direction that serves you, you will not struggle to motivate yourself to take action. When you are headed in the right direction, gaining clarity occurs much more easily.
That’s why I am so excited. I have been working feverishly on the new direction. I want to share a few of those with you. I am planning to launch a regular podcast for you (very soon…think, within a week or two)…still working out the logistics.
I also have our new “home” on the web (new URL) picked out and I think you’ll like it. I just want to get it spruced up a bit before I invite you all over for a housewarming party!
Be looking for a regular newsletter going forward as well. I don’t want to inundate you with more “stuff”…that is not the purpose. However, I do want to provide you with support, guidance and inspiration on your journey.
Bottom line is that the next time you find yourself complaining about a lack of focus, energy or direction; stand up, take courage, and set your own direction. We’re waiting for you to show us that the miraculous is still possible.
