CHANGE: When you enter unchartered territory … how do you keep going?


Wanting Change is natural.  Being afraid of change is natural.  That makes change confusing and frustrating.

So my question is: when you do decide to make the changes how do you keep going.  I used to think that I had to have all the answers to my ‘goals’ and then I heard the famous story told by Jack Canfield:


Moving towards your goals are like this:

Imagine a car driving through the night, the headlights only go a hundred to two hundred feet forward and you can make it all the way from California to New York driving through the dark because all you have to see is the next 200 feet. That’s how life tends to unfold before us. And if we just trust that the next 200 feet will unfold after that and the next 200 feet will unfold after that, your life will keep unfolding and it will eventually get you to the destination of whatever it is you truly want because you want it.”


I think the trick is to keep your long term goal (California), make a plan (turn the lights on – get your satnav set up) and drive!  You cannot possibly see every twist and turn and the great thing about satnav’s that are tuned into your destination (when they are accurate!) is that when you veer off course because you missed a turn it will bring you back.


My biggest tip: look for answers, alternatives, and new ideas that will get you there and ASK
