"What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner."
I am always talking about having a vision and looking forward to new challenges and ideas. I am a very firm believer that if you have something to move towards, it can inspire you and make you accomplish more than you had thought possible. (Take a look at this article if you don't believe me!)
However, I would put in a word of caution.
Sometimes we can be so intent on getting to the goal ahead of us that we miss out on the wonderful things along the way. These could be things which could help us achieve our goals, they could be things which we enjoy and which nourish us.
By only looking ahead, we can also lose sight of some of the best bits of ourselves. We think about how things might be better when we are more skilled, more experienced, have more time, etc., and we can often forget to acknowledge how much is right with us and our lives now.
Look at what you have to be thankful for and what is working in your life now. This is the foundation from which you can begin to build your future.
Go for your goals, but don't forget to enjoy the journey.
