I am going against the current. I am not merely drifting along with the current. I prefer to take charge of my life rather than give in to the prevailing current. I am paddling like hell.
You can tell I am paddling, because of the wake I am leaving behind me. That wake is the difference I am making in other people's lives. I know that I am going somewhere with my life because of the impact I am making in other people's lives.
I think it was Les Brown who said that by the time he died he wanted to be completely used up. I like his way of thinking. He is clearly going somewhere, and you can see the wake he is leaving behind. Are you creating a wake? Is there some tangible evidence that you are going somewhere with your life? If not, then perhaps it is time to make a change.
