Connecting The Dots

Just when life starts to feel amazing! Something always seems to get in the way. We can sit here and say its just life taking us to the next level, but what if we don’t feel like going to the next level? What if we’re happy with where we are,…

To be honest, I often feel this way. Once I’m in a very secure place, life is just like BOOM! Out of no where, I’m hit with something soooo unexpected.

In these moments I would choose to stay calm, and find a moment to myself to re group.

But recently I came across a quote that has completely changed my way of thinking in theses “BOOM” moments.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” Steve Jobs

Completely mind blowing! Steve Jobs hit it right on the nail!

When we’re hit with the “BOOM” moments, remind ourselves that we can’t connect the dots going forward, we can only trust our, “gut, destiny, karma, (or) whatever.”

We can be reassured by connecting the dots in the past that the dots in the future will some how connect. So, the next time your life is hit with a “BOOM,” know that some how, some way, this moment is a dot that helps your future connect.


I hope that sharing my experiences and sharing your experiences that we both grow to reach our full potential!
