Staying on the Path

Life is not a linear process for most of us. Very often we move two steps forward and one step back, or three steps back and one step forward. We get detoured to the side for long periods of time and then have to find our way back to the path.

Detours and missteps can be discouraging. We may be off the path so long that we forget our purpose for being on the path in the first place.

It’s often a good idea to remind ourselves why we are trudging, running, walking, or crawling along.

The best way to motivate yourself to keep moving is to hold in your mind an idea of what the destination will be like. In fact, the more vivid you can make the image in your mind the more motivating it will be. Try to imagine what your arrival point will look, feel, taste, smell, and sound like.

Make it as vivid and wonderful as you can. Your mind will then start working on getting you there.

I love the phrase, “What does done look like?” If you can imagine what done looks like the universe lines up to help you.

Have a great weekend.
