Have you ever been driving and thought you may be lost. Or even worse have you ever decided you no longer want to go to that destination. What do you do? Do you stop, do you go anyway even though you no longer want to go, do you ask for directions if you are lost, do you choose a different destination or do you just continue to drive with no direction or purpose because you are scared to change course.
Making a decision to change your course is okay. Sometimes life changes and the best decision you can make is to change with it. It is okay to make changes and it is okay if you get a little off course. Everyone gets lost from time to time. As long as you get back on course you will get to where you are going. Be sure to get back on track quickly and do not beat yourself up about the mistake. Be decisive about this new course and full steam head.
Do not worry about who is going to see you make the change or who is going to object unless they play a significant role in your major plan. If they do play a role than make sure they have the updated map. When a spouse or partner is involved, make sure you converse and discuss things as they adjust. Having a partner by your side can be a blessing. However, if this is the end of your journey together and you have to part ways, be able to say goodbye and move on with dignity. But if you need them by your side and it really means that much to you, pull over and wait for your partner. When you know this person has your back it can be worth the wait. Not everyone travels at the same pace so watch and stay close.
Pursing your goal doesn’t mean running down everyone in your way, leaving everyone behind, never making adjustments or never putting your movement on pause. It means always keeping your eye on the objective, knowing where you are, where you are going and where you will end up even if that changes.
