“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go”
– Dr. Seuss
Each of us was born with a built in system that can get us anywhere we want to go in our lives. It is a system that is as perfect and works as well as anything else in all of life, and yet it is also one of those things that seems to rarely get used.
Most of us have never tapped into the internal resources which will allow us to achieve all of those things we dare to dream about. And this is a shame.
Some of you have definitely experienced the power of the human spirit, the awesome drive that comes when determination is put into play and the wonderful feeling of grand achievement when you are using your natural gifts to accomplish your true purpose.
If you haven’t experienced this, then NOW is the time to start accessing the inner YOU. It’s time to get still and listen to that spiritual GPS, so you can start taking the road that gets you where you need to go.
All of the answers that you are seeking, as it relates to your personal growth and success can be found inside you. You just have to ask. And then you have to listen.
Someone once said that the voice of God is silence. I thought that was both extremely powerful and totally true.
When you get quiet and listen to the essence of what you are, you will gain more wisdom that you would by reading a thousand books. Well, okay, maybe a hundred.
I know this post got pretty deep, pretty fast…especially considering it started with a Dr. Seuss quote…
But I will tell you that helping people access their inner strength is one of the things that I am the most passionate about in all of life. If I had to describe only one scenario that really brings me joy and gratification, it would be seeing someone come to understand that they really can be anything they want to be, and do anything they want to do, and that all of the resources required to accomplish all of that exist right inside themselves. It’s awesome.
Take that light poem from the beginning of the post and say the words aloud. Let them sink in. You really can steer yourself in any direction you choose. It’s all up to YOU.
I say take those feet that are in those shoes and start moving them down the road toward whatever it is you want to accomplish.
Start now. Doctors orders!
