In Others’ Words: Direction
Seems everyone’s talking resolutions and words . . . hopes and dreams for the new year. I relish hearing about other people’s desires for the next 12 months. Meanwhile, I hung up my “Confidence” quote near my desk and positioned the “Confidence” ornament my friend Shari gave me from the rear view mirror of my Subaru Forester. Yes, that’s one Christmas decoration that wasn’t packed away until next December.
Dr. Seuss always motivates me with a pithy quote that puts a smile on my face and “want to” in my heart. Learning to not toss away my confidence will take smarts ( aka “brains”) and effort (aka “feet in my shoes”) and movement ( aka “steering myself in the right direction”).
And as the oh-so-wise Dr. Seuss points out, oftentimes the choice to be confident or unsure will be mine and mine alone. The battle will be won or lost out of sight — and within my mind.
In Your Words: If you and I were staring at a map that you’d posted on your wall, and you had one pin marking “Current Location” and one pin marking “Where I’m headed” — what would those two locations be? I’d love to know! And yes, those locations could be actual places — or figurative. What’s it going to take to get you there?
