Where Are You, Where Have You Been and Where Are You Going?

What is new in your world? Is your 2011 off to a blazing start? Or are you trapped in the inferno?

Realize this: Being appreciative of the wins AND losses in our lives is so vital to the process of evolving into the people we are destined to become. Realizing life revolves around serving others, discovering who deserves our trust, and finding ways to bring happiness to those around us will lead us to finding our own.

This applies to every walk of our lives. The difference between the average person and YOU is UP TO YOU.

Taking the same approach that everyone else takes, lending too much credence to what others think and succumbing to laziness, procrastination or the occasional brutality that life seems to bring will squash your spirit. IF – and this is a big if – YOU LET IT.

My challenge to you today is think about where you are, where you have been and where you want to be.

Sometimes, even if it is just inching towards it, we are successful if we are just taking a step towards our dreams and goals every single day. Sure, things and people come along to knock us back a few pegs, but only we determine if we are going to stop dead in our tracks and give them the satisfaction of knocking us backwards.

I will make no secret about it: the last year was the most challenging of my entire life. Events and people threw much of what I previously held to be true into question, doubt and turmoil. I went through things that no one could go through without emerging a different person.

That said, I chose to look at it like the cocoon that served my metamorphosis into a stronger, better, more fully-aware being.

Can you say the same thing about the rough spots in your life?

One thing I have always noticed is that often we are a lot closer to fulfilling our destinies than we realize. It only takes minor tweaks to our lifestyle and our attitude and our actions to go a long way. The little things add up to big ones.

And the constantly-evolving person is the one who gleans the most reward; for others and, in turn, for themselves.

All the best, and – whatever your calling – make it a great day in the right direction!
