Planning Your Journey


You know where you are.  You have a destination in mind of where you want to go.  A direction in which to travel towards.
This is difficult because everybody has different dreams.  I am sure some of your dreams are so limited and controlled because you haven’t gotten the true depth and breadth of this concept yet to understand how big and totally crazy you could get with your dreams.
What ever your dream is that is your destination you want to head towards!  Notice I didn't say that you want to get to, or achieve, or arrive at.
It’s the direction of travel for your life.  The path you will create and walk through your daily choices, taking at least a small step in that direction every day with your choices and decisions.  A course of direction for each week, to be compounded by months and years.
Success is the journey towards a Goal, not the destination.  By heading towards your goal you are being successful no matter where you are and what you are doing in your every day life.  The only way you will get lost or fail is when you lose sight of your destination, your dream, and quit taking baby steps in that every day.
There is an ancient proverb that says a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Once you start on your path, each day with with each step, your life will begin to be transformed.  People you need will come into your life.  Obstacles will arise that at first seem to block your progress only to be realized later they are just obstacles to be negotiated, stepped around, climbed over to continue on your journey.  These are actually the spice of your life, your growing experiences, the chances and signals you need to learn, expand, change in order to continue on the path.  They are not meant to crush your dreams in spite of how overwhelming they seem appear when they materialize in your path.
Opportunities will emerge.  Some like fresh fruit lying under a tree just needing picked up.  Others dangling begging to be picked from the trees.  In time your perspective about things will begin to change.  As you see progress towards your destination.  As you begin to believe as you see yourself near your goal, even in the slightest of ways.  Those perceptions and preconceived notions of the world will change.  That will cause your reality you live and work in to change.
From your thinking, ideas and dreams, to using those to direct your daily decisions while making your way along your path towards your goal.  Your life will transform as your reality changes.  You will have focus in your direction, control in the transformation of your reality by changing your perceptions and moving towards your dreams.
Once you determine your destination, by figuring out your dreams of choice, then it is a simple matter of filling in the blanks, figuring out the baby steps, from where you are to where you want to go.  You won’t know all the steps at first, or see all the set backs and obstacles which will arrive along the journey.  You may even have trouble coming up with the initial baby steps that will lead you in the right direction.  You may take some wrong turns along the way or be side tracked by people, circumstances, life in general, or the wrong preconceived notions your still clinging to which are baring your way because your traveling towards a destination from untrue beginning location.
Until your perceptions of reality line up more accurately with the true reality of the world your moving towards your destination from a false starting point.  The more honest you are about your perceptions of reality, until you expand your horizons, walk your path, adjust your perceptions of your reality the more directly you will move towards your destination.
Remember the movement, no matter how small, towards your destination is the act of being successful.  Success is not reaching your destination, it’s the journey towards it.  Your success is your journey through life every day getting closer to your dreams.  Hopefully, by the time you reach your destination, you have new and higher goals your walking towards.  This is important, because too many times people reach the goal they were working towards and their life doesn't miraculously change and they are left feeling let down.  They are left felling disillusioned and wanting.  The closer you get to your goals the more you should continually adjust your goals higher and further out of your reach.  Your success is the journey, not the destination!
