Where Are You?
Each year, I like to stop and remind myself what our lives are really about. What's really important? We have the ability to make our own choices and choose our own path. But what are our priorities?
Here are a few business-focused questions: Where is your business financially? Where do you want to be? Where are you heading? What clearly defined steps are you going to take to get there?
Here are some personal questions to reflect on: Where are your finances personally? What brings you peace and happiness? Do you have strong personal relationships? Is your life going in the direction that points to your desired goals?
Are you going where you want to go? If our lives are in order, we're no longer looking at "You Are Here" as a point of frustration—but a fulfilling joyous point in our journey through life.
Are you surviving or thriving? You may have heard, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." We must focus on the plans of our life, which will move us closer to the destination we want to go.
Are you stressed or are you blessed? Worry is a big distraction that we all have dealt with at one point or another. Some of us walk around and say, "I'm blessed" when actually we're stressed! Let's just be honest with ourselves and address the mental changes that we might need to make to allow us to move forward.
Life becomes incredibly burdensome when we function in guilt and obligation; it's stressful, and we worry about what we might have "missed." As we choose to apply solid principles to our lives we stop living a stressed-out life. We move closer to the destination we desire... and we do so peacefully.
