Know where you are going. It’s time to fly!
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.
Here is link where I started a discussion on this subject.

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.
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.”
Keep on working, great job!
