Finding Your Path
Something I’ve been obsessed about over the past year is the concept of ‘embracing the wild’. It has been a big feature in a lot of my talks and blog posts.
I truly believe that the feeling of being lost and wanting a clear cut path or direction is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for people chasing their dreams.
You see, we all feel lost at times. We all wish we had clear directions. We all want a map and a compass to follow.
But finding your path is all about pioneering and exploring these wild new territories as you step out into the unknown.
It's about having the courage to wander aimlessly at times. To trust that voice inside you that is searching for something more.
I think that the scary feeling of having absolutely no idea of how you are going to get from A to B is a sign that you are on the right path.
Lately, I have been setting some massive goals and am believing for some crazy dreams.
I am deep in some big plans for 2018 & beyond and even my crazy imagination is struggling with fears, doubts and legitamate road blocks on how I can make my vision become a reality.
And that is how I know that I am exactly where I need to be.
I want to have a positive influence on this world through everything that I do in life - personally & professionally. I want the businesses I run (& am dreaming of) to really create the change we wish to see in our communities & advance the rest of the world with us.
And I have learnt that if we are really going to have an impact on this world & chase our dreams, we need to learn to be naive & brave enough to let go & take that child-like leap of faith.
So take heart and be encouraged by your fears, doubts and the unknown in your own journeys.
If the path from where you are today, to where you want to go tomorrow is clear, then maybe it is time to dream again and believe for some bigger and better things.
Life is all about creating yourself and creating the future.
So don’t be in such a rush to figure it all out. Embrace the wild and let your life surprise you as you find your path.
