I love that quote! Think about it. What does it mean to you? For me, it is so empowering. It reminds me that anything IS possible in this life we have been blessed with. This quote says when you travel life’s road you will be given choices. How you look at these choices and react is up to you. This is how I live my life every day. I am 53 and the possabilities are endless .
Think about this. If you have the ability to imagine something in your mind that you want- and you can see it as a target- then the dream is possible. What you do next is THAT which will define you. Your next step IS entirely up to you. It is up to you to create a plan to achieve your goals.
And think about your journey. This road trip will have some twists and turns, but that is what makes a trip fun. No one wants to drive on a straight road for hours with nothing to see! BORING. It IS the twists and turns that make us look forward to what lies ahead .
This road trip may have some detours or roadblocks along the way . No one said this would be easy. How you react to the roadblocks – that will be your defining moment.
- So you can be “Debby Dreamer” and stare out the window just sight seeing hoping something magical will appear.
- You can be a “Betty Blamer” and find every reason why you can’t or haven’t reached your final destination.
- You can be “Negative Nancy” and focus only on the bumps in the road- poor me, nothing goes,my way. It figures there is a road block-nothing is ever easy .
Or you can simply rise to the occasion. Make a plan and when you hit a roadblock adjust the journey. Look at the “hiccup ” as an opportunity to see more sights. The roadblock is just a means for you to find another way around to your end point . You might have to back track a bit and regain your bearings, but that is how you learn.
If you can realize that every day you make a choice of who you are going to be and that “You are entirely up to you, ” life’s journey will never be a disappointment.
