"Oh, the places you'll go!"

Awhile back, a co-worker wrote this on our main page at work. I just loved it and totally believed it, so I wrote it down to keep for the future. We just moved into another house and I was organizing some papers when I found it. So today, I decided I would share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where to go." - Dr. Seuss

  • You have brains in your head:
Stepping out of our own way is the biggest challenge for most people. We over think, or under think and many time the thinking is completely skewed in the wrong direction. Using our brains is what is changing our thinking is all about. Move from the negativity to the positive and learn how to embrace your fearless self, removing doubts and anxieties that are currently stopping you from being your best self now.

  • You have feet in your shoes:
How many of us are standing in our own shoes? It took me years to realize that I was walking in someone else's. It was a proud day when I could say they were mine. Don't be walking in someone else's path and don't go trying to wear shoes that don't fit you. Pinched feet are painful. Leave them at home.

  • You can steer yourself in any direction you choose:
Choosing a direction is the hardest part. What do you really want for yourself? Where do you really want to go? Once you decide on that, then take every possible action to get yourself where you want to go.

  • You're on your own:
That much is clear. We are totally responsible for everything that happens in our life, whether wittingly or unwittingly, we have made a choice or a decision that brought us into the circumstance or event in our life. Being responsible for each and every aspect of our life means you are on your own, but you are not alone. Everyone is right there beside you.

  • You know what you know:
It's all inside of you. The questions and the answers. Trust yourself more. Fear is essentially our lack of trust that we have all the answers, that we can control our life. We are stronger than we think and we know a lot. Trust YOU more often.

  • You are the one who'll decide where to go:
It's your life. Learn how to embrace it, and allow it to unfold the way you want it to be. Be fearless: See where it gets you! you will be surprised what you will find.

Isn't that so true. I have always loved that saying by Dr. Seuss but when my co-worker broke it down like this. It meant so much more and made me love it so much more.

Thanks for letting me share this with you and remember:
