If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.”
Remember the story of Alice in Wonderland? At a point in the story, Alice is at a crossroads and she encounters the Cheshire Cat and has the following conversation:
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.” said the Cat
“I don’t much care where” said Alice
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
And as a result, she wanders aimlessly through the rest of the story. I wonder how many times in life you have found yourself at a crossroad, not really knowing where you wanted to go?
I remember one evening what seems like a million years ago, my friends and I drunkenly stumbled into a taxi after an evening out, all of us laughing and joking and probably being slightly obnoxious. All of us just expecting to get home. After a few minutes of driving, the taxi driver asked, “So, where am I actually taking you ladies this evening?” And this is exactly how we can meander through life, if we have any goals, they may not be well formed, just an idea of where we might want to go. But if we don’t set the GPS with our destination, or tell the taxi driver where we want to go… how will we ever get there?
Our unconscious minds can be just like that GPS or the Taxi Driver. Once we program it with what we want to achieve and set some great goals, our unconscious mind can help to align the journey with the destination.
