In The Driver's Seat

Envision yourself in the driver's seat of your car. Where are you headed? What path are you taking? How long will it take you to get there? How do you get around traffic and road blocks? These are some questions that can be applied to life as well. How does one find the answer to these questions? By learning about, understanding, and applying the various powerful laws of the universe. These are the laws which govern our very existence.

There are several laws that can help one get on track, two of them, which work in tandem are the law of relativity and the law of proper perspective. The law of relativity tells us several things: first, that all things are connected and nothing is bad per se, just an experience with a lesson, which has a benefit. But it is up to each of us to find that good. This is called the "tests of initiation" and the way to pass is to be true to yourself, and pay attention to your inner dialogue while you are looking for the answer. Next, the law of relativity states that we must look at our problems and compare them to the problems of others. One will not have to look long or hard to find someone in worse shape. This really helps put things in perspective, for as bad as one may think it is, it could always be worse which brings us back to the positive state of appreciation, simply by looking outward and broadening your scope of vision. The law of relativity can be accelerated by using the law of proper perspective, which states that one must determine what is most important and what will produce spiritual growth and put those discoveries into play in order to reach the goal.

When Lorna had had enough of banging her head against the wall she decided that there had to be another way. She wanted several things in life, but her ultimate goal was to achieve success in her field, leave her corporate career, and start her own consultancy business. But at each turn, Lorna kept reaching road blocks. She was passed over for additional company paid educational opportunities, was not allowed to attend meetings with larger clients, and could not get the ball rolling on the preliminary phase of business start-up. All of these things were necessary if Lorna wanted to achieve her goals. Lorna was always busy, but as far as her accomplishments went - she may as well have been standing still! Lorna needed a course of action. She needed to put the law of proper perspective to work immediately.

She spent a long weekend looking at her goals, tracking her actions up until this point, and realized that she had several goals, but no plan for how to reach them. She had been winging it. In essence, she had just handed the keys to her car over without batting an eye. That weekend Lorna learned that she really wanted to get back in the driver's seat, and started developing a plan for how to get there. Her plan had two phases - one for her current career and the other for getting her business off the ground. Lorna's action plan included taking classes, finding a mentor, and developing a business plan. Not only did her outline help her put things in proper perspective, but it helped her create "ownership" for her life. She learned she was truly driving herself to her destination, and she was enjoying the journey.

The law of relativity and the law of proper perspective are crucial to both large and small accomplishments. It's so much easier to reach a destination with clear vision and a road map. This is what these laws accomplish. They help level the playing field by getting one to delve in deep to learn about what is really wanted. Then by removing the limiting beliefs, and assisting one in developing a way to use all available resources in manners most effective and conducive to success. The process is broken down into manageable steps, but each step brings the seeker closer to the goal. No matter the size of the goal, or the scope of the goal, this process will help one arrive.

Start today! Determine where you want to be. Begin by writing down your daily goals, prioritize them into a logical sequence (logical for you, since each person is unique), and start checking them off as you accomplish them. Keeping track of our goals will help establish ownership. It will visibly show you where you may be straying from your goals, and will help you build up your self confidence and self-esteem along the way. Both are useful, and will spur you on to meet your goals with that much more determination. To paraphrase the saying, 'each journey begins but with one small step' - so put the pedal to the metal!
