The one thing that can be bad for your life as a whole is ambiguity. There is nothing like trying to go somewhere without knowing where you’re going. Being on a journey with no destination in mind is really just taking a drive. Unfortunately, that’s where many people are in everything they are doing, whether it’s their personal, professional or spiritual journey.
I remember being in a state of confusion not really knowing which way I was going in my life, nor how I was going to get there. The odds were against me and I was a statistic of statistics. Young mother, divorced, unstable financially, there was nothing in my life that screamed success. Making the decisions I made only guaranteed that I would end up loveless, with a poverty stricken life, producing a legacy that would follow. Then one day, I’m not sure when it was, something happened inside of me; I realized there was hope.
Often times it only takes a glimmer of sunshine for me to put on my shades. It only takes a little love to realize that I’m lovable. It only took a little hope to know that I am worth more than I was giving myself credit for. Slowly, but surely, I began to get clear about who I was and ultimately, where I was going. That was the beginning. When you understand who you are, you start to understand who need to be around you and what is considered acceptable and not so acceptable.
When you are clear, you bring clarity to everyone else about his or her perception of you. Now beware, this can make a few people upset and even mad, but clarity doesn’t compromise. Clarity breeds success! If you haven’t tasted success, ask yourself how clear you’ve been about your future.
