You're stuck in an endless loop of wrong turns, missed off ramps, dodgy street signs and hastily scribbled directions. You're hopelessly lost. You can feel the panic rising and squeezing the breath out of your lungs. You can only breathe in short gasps and you're starting to sweat.
"Are you ever going to get there?"
"How could you be so stupid?"
"How hard can it be?"
"Your destination must be around here somewhere?"
What you need is a bloody good map, a set of directions to get you from the middle of Butt Fuck Idaho to "you have reached your destination". But even the best map in the world can't help you if you don't know where you are (GPS notwithstanding).
The same goes for reaching your goals. How can you come up with a plan to get from A to B if you don't know where A is?
So, where are you at my love? Take a good hard look at your current situation and ask yourself the following questions:
What is missing from my life?
What would I like more of?
What am I doing that is moving me towards my goals?
What have I tried to do to improve my situation?
What were the results?
Were the results what I expected?
What obstacles are preventing me from moving forward?
Be kind in your assessment. This is not the time for harsh judgement or blame. This is the time for honest, loving awareness.
When you have a clear view and deeper understanding of where you are, the path will begin to reveal itself and the steps you need to take will become apparent.
