I take the helm on my life voyage. Well, do I actually do this?

Sunday, October 20, 2013

My realization lately is related to this: "Failure to Plan is Planning to Fail."

So, am I really "taking the helm on my life voyage>"

I'd better do some more thinking on this. chris

    Are you sure you're thinking through the quote? Taking the helm doesn't as much mean planning as it does directing where you're going. A helm of a ship is the steering wheel. When you're in a car you can plan where to go, but you can also get sidetracked by things like detours, traffic jams, or car trouble. Similarly, in your life you must direct where your life will go. What are your goals? How will you reach them? Also, how will you deal with distractions and problems that pop up? Will you own your choices or blame others or life? Can you make the important decisions or do you delay because you aren't sure what to do? Can you make small decisions easily, things such as what foods to eat, when to exercise, etc or do you get distracted and let others or life direct what you will do?

Take a little time to ask yourself if you are controlling the steering wheel to direct where your life is going or if you're letting life and others make your choices for you. There is no GPS to direct you where to go in life, so planning will only take you so far. You have to keep your eyes on the road of life and keep moving forward to get to your goals.

    Some times you need the roll with life planning as you never know when rough seas will be ahead. My son was a teenager was into books called worst life scenarios. He was always reading them so he would feel calm and prepared when life pitched things at him.

    This is me lately. I also have to do some thinking and soul-searching and make some changes. Good luck.
