Charting Your Course: Where Are You Heading?

If your heading is in the right direction, you will get there faster. If you are distracted or heading in the wrong direction, you may never get to your ultimate goal. Where are you facing now?

There are many routes you can take to success. Some are easy, some are short, some are less traveled and some are jammed with others on the same route. It is your choice.

Here are some of your Choices…

Desired Path: What is the way you choose to get there?
Which route will you take?  There are many paths to your destination. Rarely is there only one. This is why everyone gets where they are going by different methods. We used our GPS to get to our vacation destination. Friends joined us several days later. Everyone got to the house by a different route, but we were all using our GPS. Why? Some wanted to avoid major traffic jams; some wanted to take a scenic leisurely drive. Some wanted to get there immediately. And not all GPS devices route you the same way – have you noticed that?

Ultimate Destination: Where do you want to wind up?
What are your goals?  Where do you want to end on your journey? Do you want financial freedom, or a fancy car, a big house. many children who are independent, etc.? Do you want to have everything paid off or do you want to run up a credit nightmare. Do you want to retire comfortably or work for the rest of your life?

You can choose your destination and work toward that ultimate end.

Destination: What is your heading now?
Where are you aiming?  If you want to go to Canada from Florida, it would be best to head North. You don’t have to go North, but you will get there quicker by heading in that direction. You can get there going South. It will take longer… much longer. It will even take longer by heading Northeast or Southwest. It will take a very, very, very long time, but you will probably get there one way or the other.

I heard John Maxwell say several years ago that if you don’t know where you are going, you will probably get there.

Where are you facing?  How will you get there? What is your goal?
