Trying To Control Your Future

October 24, 2016

2884846… takes away your freedom in the moment.

And that is everything.

The best laid plan has to be able to change. Because YOU are always changing.

Don’t hold so tightly to your goals and plans, be flexible with them because things change, people change and new opportunities present themselves every day.

You never want to lock yourself into a future plan because your growth is continual. Make a plan and allow it to be flexible. Choose your highway and select an exit, but then keep your eyes open and take in all the scenery around you. You may decide you want to take a different exit and explore a new town. You may surprise yourself. Life is full of exits and the best of us explore as many as we can before we declare a final destination.

Trying to control your future takes away your freedom in the moment – the freedom to decide to change your mind and take a new exit. Learn to let go and listen to the wisdom of the moment. Plans are meant to be changed. New exits are always meant to be taken. Don’t try and control your future. Pay attention to the moment, it will tell you everything you need to know about your future.

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
