You Are Where You Are Because of You

Where you are in life, you are there because of you. Your choices and decisions brought you here today. But this isn’t the final destination.

Believe it or not, where you are is because of you. Think about this: where were you five years ago? Where are you today? Did you think you would be where you are today five years ago? Where do you want to be five years from now?

Now, think about the journey you took from five years ago until today. Are you happy with your choices? If you could go back would you change anything?

Wherever you are today, you are there because of you.

My Journey

I didn’t think I would be where I am today because the journey I’ve taken in my life. I feel that life took me through so many ups and downs and I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel.

For years I didn’t know what I wanted to do careers wise. My first blog post is about picking careers (Career Paths) and how one can even decide with how many choices there are. But I am where I am today because it’s right where I’m supposed to be. But this isn’t my final destination.

And you are right where you’re supposed to be, but this isn’t your final destination neither. However, your choices with the options you had at the time led you to where you are today.

You Are Where You’re Supposed to Be

All of our choices and decisions have consequences, whether good or bad, so everything that happens to us is because of our choices, believe it or not. Life experiences are lessons and they shape us into who we are but we are where we are because of the choices we made.

Those choices and consequences led you here today. But like I said before, it’s not your final destination. So where do you want to go?

Are you where you’d like to be? If not, what can you change today that will help get you to where you’d like to be?

Where Do You Want to Go

Think about where you are and where you want to be. Make the changes you need to make today to get to where you want to go. Even if where you want to be takes five years – the time is going to pass anyways, might as well put in the work. So then five years from now you can look back and not regret where you are, instead you say, I’m right where I want to be!

Love this! Sometimes we get caught up in our day to day lives and not take the time to reflect on what we’re living. This encouraged me to analyze within me and execute on what’s needed to be done in order to be where I want to be.
