I was talking this week with a dear friend, and she was really frustrated, she explain to me than she feel that she is not even close to her dreams, that she is getting old, and may never achieve them now…
I ask her: what are your goals, what have you done toward your goals, how close are you in comparison with 10 years ago?
She answer me, with a blank face, and told me, I don’t know, but is not this.
A lot of people find themselves in a place they never dream to be, others are in a place they imagine impossible, others are walking in a place that they couldn’t imagine, but the difference sometimes is subtle but powerful, many people, had a map, a map that show them where they are going.
I ask my friends again about her dreams, and share about mine, her answer quickly make me real ice that she was right, she was Nefertiti going to reach those goals, she was too busy (her words) and did not have any time to do what she love or to simply find out what she loved.
I told her, that I am a writer, and I write when I can, I love to read, and read when I can, and I read a lot, my map shows a place with a lot of writing, speaking and reading on my future, hers, well she has no map.
Doesn’t matter were you are, but matter and is critical to know where you want to go, how is that future, because otherwise you will never reach that destination, if you don’t know were you are heading, any road will do, and in many cases, the different roads will never take you to cool places. You need to imagine and create the cool place, otherwise, you will never get there.
How is you map? You you have one?
