Be Careful!

Life can be a little daunting to say the least.  At every turn there can be a new challenge and those challenges can seem never ending.  But, a good life is led through overcoming a series of bad challenges.

You can’t look at life as if it is a super highway to the end.  At best, it has its “super highway” stretches and at worst it can be like a rocky, narrow, precipitous, mountain trail on which you are lost.  The key is not to despair and give up at any point or, God forbid, lose your balance.  As they say, Keep on keeping on!

All of that is easier said than done but it must be done!

So, how do you do it?

First, take an inventory of where you have been and what you have done with your life, so far.

Next, dream a little.  Take what you’ve learned about yourself through the inventory and apply that learning to brainstorming your wildest dreams.  Initially, don’t judge just let it flow.  In other words, don’t think why you can’t think why you want to.  It’s the “want to” that can lead you to the next step in the process.

Go back through your list of wildest dreams and draw a line through those that don’t give you a visceral sense of emotion as to why you want it.  You will only get what you emotionally connect to what you want!

Take your reduced list of wildest dreams and prioritize what you want to go after first, second, etc.  Build your individual plans for achieving each dream.

The final step is the most important.  Follow your plans and take daily action on them!

But, be careful!  A Jewish proverb is best to make my point, here.  “Don’t approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from anyside.”
