When weather or another obstacle changes a river, it naturally finds a new flow. It may have to carve new territory or forge through soil, rocks or higher elevations. We can follow the river’s lead in this time of change.
Do you feel you have a smooth flow to your life now? What has changed? Are you trying to push past obstacles unsuccessfully? Are things backing up, causing you frustration? Try creating a new flow. What do you need physically, mentally and emotionally to thrive in these times?

The best way to get where you want to be involves combining goals and action. Start with identifying the outcomes you want to achieve and then, set a strong intention to get there. Your strong intention fuels your actions.

Have you ever been in a situation where you run out of ideas and are stalled in place? What did you do?
When there is nothing left to try there are options, even if solutions are elusive. You can give up on the situation and take action accordingly. You can solicit help by getting ideas from others. You can try again, in a different way.
The key is to stay moving. Stalling or stopping in defeat does not serve you. Stay in motion and stalling is no longer an option.

Once you have identified a goal, the first significant step you can take towards achieving it is to create momentum. Without movement, your goal is dormant and very little can happen. With movement, you and your goal are energized.
How you create momentum is up to you. Some ways to create momentum are: to build accountability by telling others of your goal and by when you plan to achieve it, to develop a plan and timeline, to get the support and resources you need or to find a way to challenge and reward yourself.
Movement brings you forward. That is where achievement of your goal lies and where you need to go.
