Where we go in life depends upon our path. There are many paths to choose from. Are we taking the correct one? How do we know we are on the right path?
My wife and I enrolled in Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University last night. We think we are headed down the right path, but how can we be sure?
The best way I know of to confirm direction is to seek wise counsel from those who have been successful in the specific area. If they confirm, move on to another area needing change. If they don't, and ask for mentoring.
Once you identify the mentor you'll need to develop, implement, and follow the plan of action they suggest.
Remember the definition of insanity; doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.
If you want to change your life, you must change your life. The first step is to confirm your path.
