The world makes a way for the man who knows where he is going.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
You must see where you are going in your future before it arrives. Knowing where you are going in life produces confidence. You are on a journey to your destiny. You are traveling down the road to the place of sweet success. The most important thing to a traveler is direction. You must know where you are going.
I speak to more than 200 audiences a year. I have been to some places several times. When I leave my home to go on these trips, I always leave with a sense of security and confidence because I know where I am going. I am familiar with the airports, the baggage claim areas, the rental car check-in facilities, the directions to the hotel and to the speaking engagement facility. The moment I leave my house, I know what my day will be like and I am confident that I will make it to my destination with ease.
However, when I have to travel to a location that I have never been to before or to a place I don’t know, all kinds of insecurities start to surface. Why do these feelings surface? Because I am going somewhere I have never been before. I am not sure of my destination. I do not know where I am going.
If you do not know where you are going, how will you know when you arrive at your destination?
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
–Theodore Hesburgh, Former president of Notre Dame University for 35 years
