I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime–a TransAtlantic voyage on the Queen Mary II, followed by several days in London, then 10 days in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. As a traveler, I know the importance of knowing where you are going and how to get there. Having a plan insures that you will do the things you want without missing anything–and it makes the journey a lot more fun!
It’s the same with life–to get what you want, you have to know where you are going. You need a roadmap to get from where you are now to where you want to be in life–with vision, courage, determination and passion.
Life is a journey…do you know where you’re going to?
Today, I would like to share with you some Words of Wisdom that First Lady Michelle Obama recently shared with the graduating class at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff:
“I wish for you the kind of trials that help you discover your life’s work and give you the strength and courage to pursue it. I wish for you a life lived not in response to the doubts or fears or desires of others, but in pursuit of passions, hopes and dreams that are your very own.”
VERY profound words that all of us can learn and benefit from! Mrs. Obama captures my personal and professional philosophy completely.
Life is full of detours and roadblocks–but sometimes we need those speed bumps to discover our life’s purpose.
Are YOU prepared to face the challenges? All it takes is developing a roadmap to get from where you are to where you want to be–with vision, courage, determination and passion!
