Do you know where you're going to?
February 3, 2021
Diana Ross once sang ‘Do you know where you’re going to?’ – yes, I know it is a cheesy start to a post but bear with!
So many times, we’re asked this in different ways:
• A friend might ask you if you know what you want from life;
• A prospective employer might ask where you see yourself in five years;
• Or (my personal favourite) a magazine article might start with is your life going the way you want?
Questions, questions, questions! Everybody expects you to know where you want to be right now and where you are headed to.
For some people answering those questions is easy; they fit in a specific mould of having a life plan with set goals to be achieved by set dates, minimum flexibility and they will achieve it.
For most people though, it is more difficult, more fluid. They know where they’ve been, know that wherever they’re going they want to be happy and they have dreams. But where do they go from there?
Answer: You write those dreams down and we can then take action.
Greg S. Reid wrote that ‘A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true’.
If you can dream it and trust yourself enough to put it on paper, a coach can help you to work through the rest of the process. That’s what we do – we break everything down into small enough steps and actions that anything can be accomplished.
So to answer the lovely Miss Ross’ question; you are going any place that you dare to dream of – the only limitations are in your capacity to believe in yourself and your dreams.
