Back on track for success

Sometimes, life has a way of getting in your way.

That’s the way that things go — despite all our efforts, life has a way of intruding on our plans. As Dwight Eisenhower said, once you hit the beach, the battle plan changes, because it has to change to match reality; but the effort of making the battle plan is what counts.

But after life gets in the way, the thing that matters is how often and how rapidly we return to our original goals. Too often, life’s little detours turn into a permanent detour for people.  One little wrong turn, and they’re either running down the wrong path, or they have stopped entirely.

The key here is to maintain a solid image of your goal. First off, write it down. Second, keep looking at the written goal. Third, choose paths in life that will aid in achieving your goals and desires. Fourth, when you are diverted from your path for an occasional crisis, get back on track, just as soon as you can, and return to your chosen path.

Life has its share of stumbles and falls. We all have them — it’s just a part of life. What matters, then, is not the falling or the stumbling — it’s the getting up and getting on track that matters most of all.

Our lives are always changing, just like the world around us. Things happen, and as a result, we may find ourselves moved off our path for a while. Life is not a ride at Disneyland, where cars stay on the rail with artificial scary parts and a predictable ending. Life has scary parts, and sometimes, the ending isn’t as clear — but when we understand that getting back on track and heading toward our goal is the key to finding success in life, the ending becomes more clear — keep on track for success, and get back on track as soon as possible when life’s little surprises pull you to the side.
