So many of us are forced into making decisions at an early time in our life. These decisions vary from choice of employment, to who we marry, where we want to live, whether we want a family, and so forth.
For many these choices are easy to make and we are eager follow our chosen path, while others may find these more difficult. I see many people make the “easy” choice all the time because they are comfortable, or scared of the alternative, or just plain lazy.
The problem arises not when the choice is made, but when you are halfway down your chosen path. What do you do when you want to change your path 10 years after your choice? In most cases you can’t… Or, IF the option is available for you to change the direction you have chosen it is usually a painful and arduous process to successfully implement. It would require a new beginning, and a letting go of the familiarity of the past. It usually means leaving behind past successes (and failures) for the potential of future greatness in your new direction.
My advice – spend the time to choose the path you REALLY want before you start your journey. Know WHY you chose that path, and where you want it to go. If you don’t plan, then plan on failing.
Don’t find yourself on a road to x, when you wish you were on the road to y. You will only drive yourself crazy and put yourself in a situation that you can’t resolve.
