Ever notice how life keeps changing and evolving?
It is easy to embrace change when it feels better than where you were before. But when you feel uncertain as to whether the change is better or not, it is easy to resist it.

CLEAR DIRECTION & WILLINGNESS TO STRETCH BEYOND WHAT YOU CURRENTLY ARE
‘Clear direction’ happens when you know what you want. When you know what you want you can direct everything about yourself towards it. So even when things seem to be going wrong, it is easy to get things back on track when you know where you ultimately want to go.
This can be comparable to goal setting, although I view it a bit differently. To me, ‘Clear Direction’ is about having your intention solidly in place.
To find out if your intention is solidly in place, ask yourself this question:
What is the essence of what I want?
To be able to answer this question, you first need to know what you want, and then you need to be able to identify the emotion underneath it. This means, you need to know what you believe you would feel if you got what you wanted.
For example, if I say “I want a new haircut”, and I believe that if I get the new haircut I will feel more
stylish, than the essence of what I want is to feel stylish.
So, what is the essence of what you want?
If you can answer this question your direction will feel clear. If you can’t answer this question just yet, I invite you to ponder on it further, as it will reveal itself to you if you keep asking.
