Where to go

It is only through the challenge of moving forward that you can fully understand exactly where you want to go. To figure out where you’re going, you must get going.

You say you don’t know what to do with your life? That’s never a good reason to do nothing.

On the contrary, the way to know for sure what you want to do, is by doing it. The way to be fully committed to a course of action is to get yourself into action.

Crafting dreams, making plans, setting goals, are all a good start, but only a start. Dreams and goals gain their value when they are rigorously challenged by the reality of life.

Stop waiting for the perfect plan, the ultimate vision, the ideal purpose. Begin to zestfully make a positive difference where you now are, and with each little step you’ll work your way to a more defined and compelling purpose.

In order to have direction, you must have motion. Get yourself in motion, and let the challenge of the effort help to make your purpose clear.

— Ralph Marston
