Wisdom of the Day - If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.

in #wisdomlast month

This might not be an encouraging word, all by itself. In fact, it is rather telling us that if you don't have a goal in life, if you don't have a vision, if you don't know where you are going... then you will kind of succeed no matter what. But, is that true success? Is just being alive success?

There are different ways to measure success, but I do believe that true satisfaction and joy can be found when you work hard to achieve something that you dream about. But, let me describe this word for you once again.

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there. (Lewis Carroll)

If you don't know where you are going, then any destination will feel like a success. If you don't have any goals when it comes to your life, then you will "succeed" no matter what you do. If you don't care about what you eat, then any food will do the job. If you don't care about your relationships, then any person will be fine with you.

But, let us turn it around.

  • If you know where you are going, then you have to walk a path that will actually take you there.
  • If you have goals concerning your looks and your health, then you have to take steps that will help you achieve those goals.
  • If you want to become an athlete, you better get up and do your amount of exercise.

Do you see where this is taking you?

So, where are you going? Do you have any set goals or visions for your life?
