Destiny

“If you knew you were destined never to achieve anything of real importance, how would it change your goals and attitudes?  What if you knew you were destined for great things but didn’t know what?  …What in your life do you think will seem most meaningful when you look back many years from now?  What do you think you’ll regret when you look back?” ~ Gregory Stock, The Book of Questions

“All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with that twelve-pound mass sitting between your shoulders.  Or more specifically, with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day.  Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world.  By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“We can’t be anything we want to be.  We come into this world with a specific, personal destiny.  We have a job to do, a calling to enact, a self to become.  We are who we are from the cradle, and we’re stuck with it.  Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.  If we were born to pain, it’s our job to become a painter.  If we were born to raise and nurture children, it’s our job to become a mother.  If we were born to overthrow the order of ignorance and injustice of the world, it’s our job to realize it and get down to business.” ~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

“The meaning and the purpose behind some events are unknowable. This is the ultimate test of our faith. We must trust that everyone in life is here to learn different lessons at different times, that good and bad experiences are only the perceptions of man. After all, some of your worst experiences have truly been your best. They’ve sculpted you, trained you, developed within you a sensitivity and set you in a direction that reaches out to impact your ultimate destiny.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

Get Comfortable Not Knowing

There once was a village that had among its people a very wise old man.  The villagers trusted this man to provide them answers to their questions and concerns.

One day, a farmer from the village went to the wise man and said in a frantic tone, “Wise man, help me.  A horrible thing has happened.  My ox has died and I have no animal to help me plow my field!  Isn’t this the worst thing that could have possibly happened?”  The wise old man replied, “Maybe so, maybe not.”  The man hurried back to the village and reported to his neighbors that the wise man had gone mad.  Surely this was the worst thing that could have happened.  Why couldn’t he see this?
