“Just because you don’t name the direction, doesn’t mean that you aren’t going in one.” – Say Yes Institute

I came across this quote yesterday and thought it was beyond powerful. It’s a significant reminder that life doesn’t care if we’ve made a plan for ourselves or not, it simply keeps moving. So the choice is ours. We can either name our direction and take steps everyday to live into our most spectacular and fulfilled life OR we can allow life to keep rolling along without ever stopping to get clear in our direction or purpose.

Here’s the difference:

When you take the time to get clear in your direction, identify your vision and take action on behalf of your most desired life you harness the power to create opportunities for the Universe to support and meet you inside your identified direction. You begin to vibrate on a higher energetic plane, attracting what it is you want most in life. Declaring what you want & committing to a daily practice of moving in that direction allows you to live each day feeling more alive, energized, determined and inspired.

When you choose to live inside the role of “victim”: allowing your life to happen to you, with no real sense of direction, goals or action strategy it’s nearly impossible to empower yourself to see the grandest possibilities of your life. You end of feeling stuck, lost, confused, pessimistic and tired. And again, the Universe will support and meet you inside this space. Yuck!

Thoreau once said, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

I don’t know about you, but suddenly today seem like the perfect day to name my direction, live deliberately and feel most alive?

What about you?
