The idea of finding the way towards our life purpose, heartfelt goals or desired place in life, has been reflected on here many times before. Today let me ponder the idea from the perspective of the following question: “How much time are we prepared to dedicate to finding the way?”
Answering this question requires not just an input in terms of perhaps hours, days, months or years, but a commitment to being our best in all we do. This step in the process of finding the way gives power to our eventual efforts in the undertaking itself.
Knowing what to do and actually doing it are, of course, two distinct items. Setting aside quality time to engage in an activity of self-examination is a valid exercise for everyone wishing to live his or her potential. Finding the way forward is an act of self-discovery and indeed self-belief.
For some people the most effective means of finding the way is to ponder the question on a regular basis. Whatever works best for each of us is, as ever, as individual as we all are.
