Are You Settling In Life?

 

I want to start by telling you about a story involving my son. We were actually in California and he wanted to buy some new trainers.

So, my view is that he gets a pair that are fit for purpose and that will last him. It turns out that buying trainers for teenage boys is as hard as buying for teenage girls!

We went to lots of different stores and he tried on any number of pairs of trainers, but nothing seemed to fit properly. He really wanted a particular brand of shoe and so the one pair we found that fit, he wasn't that keen on.

Where are you spending your energy?

Are you spending your energy working on a vision that isn't aligned with who you are? 
 
Are you sacrificing the beautiful life you could have because of someone else's agenda, or because you haven't spent time working on what is important to you?

Don't set the bar to high and be totally unrealistic. 
 
There is a huge range in between.
 
So where should you set what you want to achieve on your life? 
 
Well that's up to you. 
 
Every goal you want in your life has a cost. A price. The price is the effort you are willing to put in. 
 
You can't have a great marriage without being a good spouse.
