You define where you want to go...

Hello to all! Hoping you had a wonderful week...

During this week I was listening to one of my Jim Rohn's audiobooks, and decided to write a very nice topic that he mentions very often...

In previous post I wrote about getting better information to make better decisions, and I still believe that, but there is one fact that we need to bring about.

Today's media is mostly focused on showing us all the things that are going wrong today, that's what makes the news. North Korea, AH1N1 influenza pandemic, the economic crisis, you name it.

If we are looking for information to make a decision, and we see and hear the previously mentioned facts (Among others), we are very likely to believe it is not the best of times to do it.

If we make the decision NOT to act, then we are letting the wind determine our destination. I am not a Sailor, but I am sure sailors go where they want to REGARDLESS of where the wind is blowing. They know how to set the sails to use the wind to propel them to their destination.

This is exactly what we need to do, we need to make a habit to constantly learn new useful things that will allow us to set a better sail tomorrow than we did today, so we can get to where we want to go faster.

If we stay on deck waiting for the wind to blow exactly the same direction where we want to go, we are very unlikely to ever leave, and even if we do, the wind may shift at any time.

To close I will quote Jim Rohn, "Is not the blowing of the wind that determines your destination, but the set of the sail"

Are you waiting for the wind, or you are learning to set a better sail?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Till next time.
