THE JOURNEY IS THE FUN PART
“The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come”
It’s really important that you know where you are in relation to where you want to be in order to effectively move towards your goals. An understanding of both is essential if you are to make any deliberate decisions about your journey.
We are surrounded by many influences in our physical environment and often get asked by ‘others’ to behave differently in order to positively affect their experience. There are a lot of people and systems who have a predefined set of expectations from us; take governments, employers, teachers and parents as just a few.
We come up against this challenge daily in the form of rules, laws and beliefs – they are not imposed by ourselves but by others, in fact, almost everyone seems to have an opinion about how we should behave.
If you are using those kinds of outside influences to guide you, it is not possible to stay on track between where you are now and where you want to be. Instead, it’s more likely that you will get pulled in every direction in an attempt to please another, only to discover that no matter how hard you try, you cannot consistently move in any pleasing direction.
By living this way, you do not please ‘them’ and you do not please yourself. In turn, by being pulled in lots of different directions, the path to where you intended on going, usually, gets lost in the process.
Once you’ve consciously observed, from your own creative perspective, how each new achievement leads to another new desire, you will begin to realise that you cannot ever get it all done because you cannot halt your awareness.
To cease to evolve is to cease to exist and all of our journeys should continually generate new ideas for the evolution and improvement of our own experiences… Learn to enjoy your journey, it’s the fun part!
