Ask Others What Course You Are On

by seo on July 23, 2009

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes discussed how it helps to ask the people around you about how they envision your life unfolding.

When we look back at ourselves several years ago most of us realize how little we knew at that time and how many mistakes we made, which we could certainly avoid today. According to Harrison it can be frightening looking back at our past, and the people we were. Several times throughout your life you will have people tell you what you would be doing and who you would become in ten or twenty years (or more). You may be amused at that time but later you often realize that the people who said such things ended up being right.

Do you see where other people in your life are headed at the moment? And perhaps more important: Do others see where you are headed at the moment? The chances are pretty good they do. Harrison strongly believes that it would help to know where you are headed. We can all see some aspects in others that are indicative of who they are likely to become in the future. There are few surprises that we are likely to witness in the lives of others, because we can often clearly see where people are going, even before they can.

You do not see where you are going all the time because you are living in it. You are also denying it. But others see it. And they take it for what it is. It may sound daunting, but it is important to ask the people around you about how they envision your life unfolding. Where are you headed? Are you headed for something positive or negative? Your allies will tell you if you let them.
