Do you feel you are at a crossroads in life and are unsure which direction to take? Do you feel that your life lacks meaning or purpose or it is not heading in the right direction? That you are perhaps drifting off course? Then you are not alone. The crossroads dilemma has been one that has been deliberated for millennia! Do you know what it is that you truly want in life? If you don’t know what you want or have not set yourself goals then essentially it won’t matter which road you choose to take at the crossroads as you haven’t chosen where you want it to take you. How do you discover your life’s direction and decide which road to take? By taking personal responsibility for your focus, your purpose and your direction. Come to the crossroads ready to make a decision with all the information you need to take action. Your values are your chosen life directions, your roadmap, and will guide your actions, choices and decisions. Use your values as your compass. Stop overthinking. Follow and trust your heart to choose your direction and the road of fulfilment. Just as finding your WHY is not something you actually find, you in fact create it, so it is with direction. When you know what you want and have a clear vision, you can then form a plan and the road ahead becomes clear. Dare to dream and refuse to allow others to dictate your life direction. Hone in on what you love doing. Your inspiration will give you clarity of direction. Be true to yourself, stay authentic, honour your thoughts, activate your superpowers, strengths and values to empower you to go more confidently in the direction of your dreams. "Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." John F. Kennedy Your decisions determine your direction and shape your destiny. Remember you can always change your direction. Change lies within you and your decisions. Your direction is led by your purpose. Know your destination and have a plan to reach it. Focus on direction.
