Where are you?

Where am I? This is one of the pivotal questions we must ask ourselves in order to make any reasonable move to something else. Where are you? This is kind of the same question that a wise helper should ask you when trying to get you to come to terms with your situation as they skilfully lead you to something new.

When we get too caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, we lose sight of where we are. Sometimes, we intentionally refuse to be cognizant of where we are as we live in denial not wanting to face up to the changes that we might need to make.

The GPS system on our digital navigation devices always needs us to enter our current position in order to be directed to a future destination. Knowing where we want to get to without knowing where we are does not help us get there.

Someone described GPS as Goal Positioning System. So if I want to drop down two dress sizes and be more physically fit, then I need to know how much I weigh now, and then I set a goal to lose 20 pounds to get me to the ideal weight. This will involve changing diet and incorporating exercise routines. Without that clear specific goal of how to get to where I want to be from where I am, I am not likely to achieve much.

Always have the answer of where you are as close at hand as possible as this will help you to keep navigating away from it to where you truly want to be.
