Most of us like to think that we know exactly where our life is headed. Whether it be pure optimism or just sheer ignorance...when we think/act this way, we're really giving up control of our life's journey.
In order to figure out where we're headed, we must first figure out where exactly we're at in the present moment. This makes it easier to plan for the LONG road ahead. When I say LONG, I really mean Looooong!
A key to gaining a sense of direction that will lead you to success is developing a long-term perspective. What I mean by that is you have to constantly imagine the kind of person you want to become along with the goals (This is where the journey begins; by setting goals for yourself) you want to achieve. This practice helps you come back to the present moment, where you will understand what needs to be done NOW in order for your future wishes to take place.
Don't get caught up 'Thinking' that everything is okay and that you're moving in the right direction (or moving at all for that matter), instead focus on how you are truly feeling about your current actions.
