Are you heading in the right direction?

The direction you are currently traveling - relationally, financially, spiritually and the list goes on and on - will determine where you end up in each of those prospective areas. This is true regardless of your goals, your dreams, your wishes, or your wants. The principle of the path trumps all of those things. Your current direction will determine your destination. And like every principle, you can leverage this one to your advantage or ignore it to your disadvantage. Just as there are paths that have led us to places we never intended to be, there are paths that lead us away from those places as well.

I know it's tempting to believe that our good intentions, aspirations and dreams somehow have the ability to do an end run around the decisions we make on a daily basis. But at the end of the day, the principle of the path determines the outcome. Simply put, you and I will win or lose in life by the paths we choose.
