Going Somewhere?

Reading time: 1 minute

My conversations with my grandma would sometimes take a funny turn:

“Where are you going?”

“What do you mean?”

“Where are you going?”

“I’m not going anywhere, I’m sitting right here.”

“I mean where are you going in your head.”


“Aah, that’s the problem.  If you wandered around in the world never knowing where you’re going, you’d never get anywhere.  And if you wander around in your head never knowing where you’re going you won’t get anywhere either.”

I wasn’t always sure what my grandma was talking about.  But as I got older and a little bit wiser, I began to get it.

If we don’t have an aim from which to think each and every day, our mind just wanders along its old, usual tracks, bringing old, usual experiences.  Unless and until we direct our thoughts into areas that are positive and productive then they just run around willy nilly.  And whilst our inner world of thought and outer world of events might be distinct from one other, they aren’t separate.   Which is why Grandma said I needed to know where I was going in my mind, if I was to get there in the world.

In other words, if I want success, health and happiness in life then I’d better be thinking those thoughts.

Whatever it is you want in life, more health, greater wealth, a wonderful relationship…no matter what it is choose it as your aim from which to think and visit it repeatedly throughout the day.  Make a statement:  I’m rich, I feel great, I love my life and it doesn’t need to currently be ‘true’ you’re just creating a new track along which to think.

As I’ve said before Grandma was a very wise woman…believe her, and trust me, it will make a difference.
