If your nose is pressed to the glass, it’s impossible to see much, and at best, you have a distorted picture of your reality.
You might even end up cross-eyed!
With a myopic or shortsighted view of your life, you literally cannot see the forest for the trees or anything else clearly.
But, if you allow yourself to step back, or, in this analogy, sit back in the driver’s seat of your life, get behind the wheel and head out on a road trip, you will be amazed how much clarity you’ll gain.
Rather than trying to figure out who you are, and what you truly desire by looking through a tiny aperture, put some distance between you and your spaghetti brain, cue up an uplifting playlist and drive!
Eyes forward, hands on the wheel, mind open!
Let the miles untangle the mess of stress, distractions, and chaos that keep you from visualizing the route to the future you want.
Shift gears from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset.
Accelerate your imagination, and like the breeze through your hair, let the winds blow away self-doubt, self-criticism, and limiting beliefs.
Steve Jobs said “. . . you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
On a recent road trip, I was reminded once again the white lines on highways are my dots.
I trust they are connecting in my future even though I cannot yet see around that corner.
But, without a doubt, I know the dots can only connect if I keep moving forward.
If I stop, the trail stops, and I’m left sitting at the curb regretting a journey that I didn’t have the courage to begin.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll navigate the winding curves of lives in transition, and how to find our way to the next level of evolution.
We will share how we continue to evolve, become more of ourselves, and increase our capacity to trailblaze, mentor and Lift As We Climb.
