Meeting The Unexpected

"A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown."
- Denis Waitley, speaker, writer, author

The unexpected often occurs.

The plans are set. The strategy crafted. The anticipation grows. 

Then the unexpected happens leaving you with multiple choices of how to react.

That's when you pull from experience, confidants, quotes, stories, beliefs, and values to move into the unknown with your best energy, intent, and focus. 

The unknown can be a frightening place.

Why am I doing this? What pulls me in this direction? Did I make the right choice? 

The questions linger; yet suited with the best of what you know and can do, you move forward into the unexpected domain with an open heart, wide eyes, and a sense of trepidation and excitement.

Rarely does the decision to go forward leave one with regret, but instead these thoughtful choices at unexpected moments typically open new doors, bring new light, and move one forward in ways that matter.
