"Which way ought I go from here?"
Have you ever asked yourself that question? Here you are, moving through your life and you get to a point where you start to wonder if you could have achieved more.
In Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland there is a short conversation between the main character, Alice, and a Cheshire Cat. The conversation goes as follows.
“Cheshire Puss,” she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. “Come, it's pleased so far,” thought Alice, and she went on. “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.
“--so long as I get somewhere,”' Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you're sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
If you plan by the assumption that if you just walk long enough you will arrive somewhere, then you plan much like the world plans. As the Cheshire Cat explains, “you’re sure to do that” (get to somewhere). However, is that “somewhere” the best place for you to be?
Being taught life navigation skills through the paradigm of trial and error will cause you to develop a pattern of reaction. A reactionary response to life is one that only causes learning after errors have been made.
The antithesis of this would be assuming the paradigm of strategic planning or proactive behavior patterns. That paradigm must be learned.
As the Cheshire Cat keenly points out, where you go from here depends largely on where you want to get to. Where you want to get to is directly affected by what motivates you to press on.
This is where I can help you. Unlike the Cheshire Cat, I will help you develop a focused strategy that will position you for success.
My purpose is to provide you an executable strategy that over the course of time will cause you to win.
My purpose is not to enable you, it is to empower you; it is not to lighten your load, it is to enlighten your mind; it is not to point you in the direction of success, it is to walk with you as you cross the finish line of success.
If you are interested in pursuing the change required to succeed; real change; sustainable change; change that makes a difference then contact Ken Rupert for a free consultation.
