The way you process is to build on the distance you have come. You have skills you have developed, talents you have expanded upon, experience that included success and failure. All of that is the foundation upon which you stand. It is what you build on.
You passion is clear
It’s much easer to identify your passion after you’ve lived a few years. You keep seeking out the same type of experience, the same opportunities. That makes the next part of your journey easy to map out.
Your talents are evident
Sometimes we forget our natural talents. When I started doing videos I loved doing them. Then I remembers I have two degrees in theater. Duh. No wonder I was having a good time. Look back over your life for the talents you developed at an earlier stage and bring them into now.
Your skills have been honed
I know things I didn’t know a few years ago. I do things better this week than I did last week. The more you use your skills, the more choices you have when it comes to a new project – or a new path.
You are wise from experience
Been there, done that. What a time saver that is. And it also keeps us from making the same mistake again. (Hopefully) Let experience guide you but don’t let it keep you stuck. Stay open for change. Embrace change. Take that experience and go exploring.
You know your heart
In retrospect I can look back and see several things I have brought forward steadily in my life. That is my heart. One is writing and the other is an interest in my own spiritual exploration. Now those are coming together for this part of my journey.
Use your past to build your future
Stand firmly in your experience, look deeply into the wisdom of your heart, and build on the distance you have come. Reject what didn’t work. Expand on what did. You have the wisdom now to make choices that are aligned with your passion, your calling, your skills and your talents – all of which have grown richer with age. That’s how you build on the distance you have come.
