It’s Not The Wind, It Is The Set Of The Sails

Hello Everyone,

Yes, it is true, I am a very boring person.  I rarely listen to music when I am in the car, and the books I read are rarely fiction.

I spend most of my time listening to seminar on health and personal developement.

I was thinking about this today and a quote came to mind from one of my favorite mentors, the late Jim Rohn.

Mr. Rohn always said “It is not the wind that determines where we end up, it is the set of the sails.”  He would then go on to say “the same wind blows on us all, the winds of opportunity, the winds of dispair, the winds of happiness, the winds of hardship…”

In other words, we all have challenges.  We all have health issues that we face.  We all have time constraints, money limitations, personal issues and hardships.  All of us.  We all put our pants on one leg at a time :).

So what is it that determines our different arrival points in our lives?

Well I believe that it comes down to three basic steps:

1.  Know where you want to go!  Set a goal and know specifically where you are trying to get to.  If you don’t have a desire or a destination in mind, you will end up where other people want you to go.

2.  Be curious, always set out to learn. If you dont know how to get where you want to go, make up your mind to learn how to do it.

3.  Take daily action towards your goal.  Your daily actions and habits have brought you to where you are today.  If you want to arrive in a different place tomorrow, you have got to take different actions….now….today.

Have a great day!
