Knowing where you are going in life is probably the most important factor to getting there.
I floundered for many years with not knowing where I was going then I went through even more years of personal development. It wasn’t until I began to really know myself that I started to realize what my passion was.
The truth is I kind of always knew. I just didn’t believe in myself enough to pursue my dreams. At eight years old I knew I was an artist and a musician but it never occurred to me that I could actually do it as a living. I grew up in a modest home with a very hard working mother and father who really sacrificed a lot for our family. Dad was constantly gone and always tired. I don’t think it occurred to him either that he could pursue his dreams.
My dad was a practical man so he said to me “Son being a musician is an awesome goal to have but I think you should join a union and get a good job so you will always have something to fall back on”.
So you know what, that is exactly what I did because I took my dad’s message to mean that my dream was unrealistic. I don’t think he intended it that way, that was just his own belief system. That is probably why he never pursued his own dreams.
After many years of reflection I understand that I put my own limitations on myself. Today I am very clear that if I don’t pursue my passions then I will be unhappy. This is the main reason to have a vision for your life
You won’t be happy unless you are doing what you came here for!
I think it is good to have a personal development plan in place so that you can start to unravel what your hearts desires are.

This is a powerful subject and I think the world would be a much better place if people actually knew what there life purpose was.
