In addition to knowing our direction and destination, we also need to know our current location. Being honest about where we are is the only way we can plot a course that will lead us to our intended destination.

Why? Because, if we are completely honest we can admit that, no matter how carefully we plan, there is always an element of “UNKNOWN” in everything. There are always outside forces beyond our control that influence our direction and results. That’s why living or sailing without worry or fear requires the spirit of an adventurer!

Vivid analogies. I think another point of analogy would be that when you go sailing, you’re not going to get anywhere (with any consistency) if you have no plan of where you’re going and no map. So too, if we don’t have clear where we’re going in life and what our goals are, we’re leaving it up to chance as to whether we make it to a meaningful destination.

I have a client who is a keen sailor. We are working on his long term vision of ”sailing to parts unknown”…without a worry in the world. Great stuff, thankyou
be good to yourself

When you are on a boat an the seas get rough focusing on the horizon can help prevent you from getting seasick. In similar way, focusing on what is in front of us adds stability and balance to our lives and gives us control of where we allow our thoughts to go. Thanks for your support and contributions Nancy. You are truly appreciated.
