One day a traveler in a remote country town, convinced that he was on the wrong road, came to a halt in a village. He called one of the villagers and said to him, “Friend, I need help. I am lost!”.
The villager looked at him for a moment and asked, “Do you know where you are?”
“Yes” said the traveler. “I saw the name of your village as I entered.”
The next question posed by the villager was: “Do you know where you want to go?” “Yes” the traveler replied.
“Then, my friend, you are not lost. You just need directions.”
Many of us are in the same position as the traveler. We know where we are – sometimes dissatisfied, disappointed and experiencing little peace of mind. And we know where we want to be – at peace, fulfilled and living life abundantly. Like the traveler, we are not lost – we just need directions.
It may not take much to find the right road to success, but to reach it we need an agenda for the present. We need directions for today.
