Following the sign


If you read these posts regularly, you’ll know I am very much for us following the sign our heart indicates as the direction to move in.

Following the sign is an action easy to implement when the message leaves little or nothing open to misinterpretation. Our desired path – established in alignment with our values and life purpose and set out through thrilling goals – may be guiding us each day in our efforts.

Yet society and so-called ‘popular opinion’ often suggest we should be following the sign towards an immediate gain. Being able to resist instant gratification to achieve our true, heartfelt, objectives is itself a part of our ultimate success.

We might be surprised by how difficult this is in practice, especially as it represents ‘the road less travelled’. However, happiness obtained by living our potential as we go about following the sign towards our goals is much deeper than quick wins usually produce.

Of course each person gets to choose according to what is best for himself or herself. No judgement concerning following the sign leading to any particular direction is intended. We all know our own situation and immediate needs.

Following the sign, I see we have reached the end of the post, so let me just thank you for connecting here today.
