Fate

Who directs our life? I am working with so many individuals who are in limbo, uncertain of the direction they want to take, and ultimately where they want to go.  What can we do?

On this Friday, a notion to ponder:

If we don’t consciously select where we want to go, we will go where our unconscious wants to go.

As Carl Jung has written, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it ‘fate’. ”

In this regard, many of us are on autopilot.  Knowing what we want helps us focus in the direction in which we want to take our lives. At the end of the day, remember, we only control our ABC’s: our attitudes, our behaviors, and our choices. We can blame fate for our lot in life or we can focus on making the unconscious conscious, make choices, and build our life from there.
