It’s a big question: How do you know when you’re on the right path?
What’s usually driving that question is: What if I mess it up? What if I do it so wrong that nobody will like me, that people will abandon me, that I’ll be a bad person, that my business will fail… and the list goes on.
The Answer: You’re always on the right path. Even if you take a dozen wrong turns one after the other, and you feel like a total f***up, you are still on “the right path.
I’m not kidding and I’m not making light of this.
You ARE on the right path. You know when you take a wrong turn in your car and the GPS goes “Recalculating” and then it does, it recalculates. You have a new path based on the wrong turn you took. Well, that’s what happens! LOL!
So please let yourself off the hook a little. Yes, strive for awesomeness. Yes, have fun when you can along the way. Yes, go through whatever difficulties are part of the journey.
NO. Do NOT berate yourself for being on the wrong path. Whatever choices you’ve made, actions you’ve taken, experiences you’ve had… it all has brought you here, to where you are now and you know what?
You get to choose your right path in every moment.
