“With space before us we have the room to move towards our goal.” #bgdtcoaching.
Feeling crowded out is rarely a pleasant experience (click here to read the related post). On the other hand, some people might feel apprehensive about having space in front of them. The sense of openness and opportunities are not always favourable to everyone.
Yet for those of us who are not intimidated, with space before us we have the room to move towards our goal. How we choose to firstly see the space before us and secondly eventually fill it is, of course, up to us.
The significance of the perceived way ahead is such an individual matter it would not be correct to offer suggestions here, besides the usual ‘Follow your heart’. With an objective in mind it is likely we decide to use the opportunity offered to us in this instance as a starting point to success.
The space before us in this manner becomes the gap between us and our goal. Closing this gap is a key action, though one we may choose to undertake again in accordance with our values and guiding outlook on life. And from these will flow our effort to manage, to the best of our ability, the space before us.
