Framing Your Life's Journey

A home can be any size, form or color. But, every home has two things. A foundation and a frame.

You need a solid foundation to build on. And you need to know what kind of house you are building in order to frame it.  

Your life's journey will be the home that you build for yourself. This happens regardless of how much thought you put into it. Each moment of your life moving forward will in some way set your foundation and build your home.

Now is the time to start setting your personal expectations. To start thinking about who you want to be. To focus on your responsibilities.

If you don’t have high expectations for yourself, and hold yourself to those expectations, your foundation will be weak. You will struggle to be consistent and let yourself down. Things will collapse around you at times.

If you don't know what you want and where you want to go, you will build a home without a frame. You will just be nailing pieces of wood together aimlessly.

Now is the time to start to think seriously about what you want and where you want to go. Once you know these things, you can start to develop your goals. You will have plans - the frame upon which you can build your home.

The more you know what you want and where you want to go, the more square your frame will be. The better things will fall into place as you move along on your life's jouney.

You can't go back in time to rebuild your foundation and frame. Put thought into who you want to be. Put thought into what you want. Then take action to make it happen. Be purposeful in what you do starting now.
