We have all been in each of these areas at one point of our lives or another.

We've been wanderers, asking others what we should do, what would be good for us, looking for hints into what choices we need to make to bring usrepparttar happiest of all possible lives.

We've been couch potatoes sitting back "thinking" about things waiting for justrepparttar 102025 right moment "I'll begin doing what I want oncerepparttar 102026 kids are grown up or oncerepparttar 102027 car is paid off, or whenrepparttar 102028 planets are aligned. Boy, will I start living then."

And we've been searchers. At points in our lives, we've had ideas as to what we needed to do. But we saw different things we alongrepparttar 102029 way. "I need that new computer," or "I need to buy that book so I could do a better job," or we find more projects to get into. "One of these has to be what makesrepparttar 102030 difference."

Of these different ways of living that seem to lead us no where except around in circles, they have one other thing in common: A lack of a "chosen direction."

Without a destination, we wander. We may get to see a lot of things, but nothing that will keep us going. Without a destination, we wait. We think it is forrepparttar 102031 best, but we pass up so much more this way. And without a destination, we search. We look around for signs pointing us somewhere better, but they're are more like detours keeping us further from anything we would have been.

So,repparttar 102032 time has come once again to plan what we will do next year. It's time for each of us to pick a destination and get started on a dream journey.

After all, if you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up... somewhere else.

And no one should end up there by accident.
