Dig Slash Clear Forge

You know how it goes when you are trying to figure out what to do next – everyone has an opinion for you. Really,  pretty much everyone will offer advice, opinions and has what they genuinely think is the best plan for your life. It is just what people do.

But even those who are most gracious and genuine in their ideas for you are going to offer it to you from their frame of mind. This is fine for getting insight or assistance when you need a fresh perspective, but is ultimately not your strongest position for deciding how to live your life.

Consider instead of following someone else, someone else’s ideas, opinions, objectives and agenda – make your own path!

Forge your way. Slash, dig, rake, build, clear your own path. This requires a few elements: courage, confidence and knowing your next step will be.

So here is the thing about all 3 of those things – you don’t need a lot to get started. You can get rolling with even just a bit of courage and confidence – just enough to take the first step.

You do not need to know every twist and turn and every step on the path – in fact that is nearly impossible and completely unnecessary. Just the next step, just what is in front of you now.

Taking that step will give you more courage and confidence as well.

So, no need to follow someone else. You can create your own path and follow your own truth. You will be so glad you did!

  1. Great post this week Kathleen!

    I totally relate. It is great to have people on your side when making huge life changing decisions, however whether they agree or not it is so important I have your own back and go for what you want regardless!

    I definately forged my own path 18 months ago when I quit my career as a nurse and began studying in holistic kinesiology just before my wedding and whilst pregnant! Not many people thought that was a good idea but here I am now launching my new business 🙂

    Thanks for this as per usual it has come at the right time 🙂

  2. Hi Kate – LOVE it – great share about how you made your own path!

    Wow – now that takes a lot of courage!

    Fantastic inspiration 🙂

  3. When I was 19 I felt I had no control over my life , so without warning I dropped out of college and hopped on a plane to LA with $200 in my pocket. It was the best thing I could have done. I struggled, I succeeded and a year later I was on the path I wanted to be on. I wouldn’t be where I am at 50 if that 19 year old girl hadn’t trusted herself.

  4. Lisa – love that story. You are amazing to have been able to trust yourself at such a young age – and continue to do so!

    Great reminder that out future depends on trusting out intuition.
