How did you like Seth Godin‘s post on blindly following the commands of your GPS?
Missed it? Check it out here. Really. Go read it now. I’ll wait.
So? Which GPS could use a little disobedience from you?
Maybe it’s the friend who wants you to take a spinning class with her even though yoga’s more your style.
Or the boss who insists that you to be at her beck and call 24/7, even during vacation.
Or maybe it’s the relatives who remind you how risky it is to pursue your dreams at your age/because you won’t be able to pay your bills and you’ll end up on the streets/in this economy.
I’ve had my share of faulty GPS readings like those, but the shrillest ones are from the voice of my lizard brain. That’s the reptilian part that’s wired to read fear, danger, and lack at every turn.
Lucky for me, I have another inner GPS – the accurate one – that’s there to show me the way to peace, joy, and abundance. It’s quieter than the lizard, but it’s always ready to lead me to my right life.
You have an inner GPS just like it.
Are you listening?
