Sometimes in life we can be too focused on where we are and not enough on where we’re going. If you’re stuck and a lot of your internal conversation is about where you are now and why you’re there…this could be the problem. If someone is so caught up proving that where they are is bad, how it’s not their fault and how it’s impossible to get somewhere else, they will stay there. There is a strong unconscious pull to prove how whatever went wrong is not their fault. The problem is that is the exact thing that will keep them stuck.

We have to remember to look beyond where we are because where we are is not nearly as important as where we’re going. If we focus on where we are, we’ll stay there. So the key is to focus on where we’re going. Look towards the future you want and you’ll create it.

The past got you where you are, so if you don’t like where you are, don’t look at your past (except to learn from). This way you’ll know what you won’t be doing in the future. Find new ways to do things, to look at things, to walk in the direction of what you want. We CAN be who we want to be, it’s just a matter of finding the path. We all have one and we are all capable of finding it, walking it and experiencing the peace, joy, happiness and fulfillment we desire and deserve!

So don’t get caught up in your present circumstances if you don’t like them. Look beyond them and create the future you want!
