Would you try to change a tire on a moving car?
Probably not, right? It makes sense to slow down, pull over, take stock, and then make the necessary repairs.
The same can be applied to the importance of stopping to assess your life—where you are, where you’re going, and where you need to make adjustments.
If you’re barreling down the road of your life, there’s considerable momentum to keep going where you’re headed.
If you’re joyful, fulfilled, and inspired in all aspects of your life (yes, I said all), by all means, carry on! Keep driving!
On the other hand, are you hearing some rattles and putting brakes on your own happiness? Are you keeping the gas pedal pushed all the way to the floor because you’re so adrenaline-ridden from the busyness of life?
If so, then it’s time to pull over, take stock, and get intentional about designing your life.
There’s a difference between letting life happen to you and unfold around you versus proactively and actively creating the life you want. But it means taking the time to think deeply and create an energizing vision that reflects what matters most to you!
Are you living your best life based on what matters most? What’s your plan to make the coming 365 days your best year yet?
