“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”
~ Nido Qubein
No matter where you want to go with your life, no matter what you want to accomplish, you have to start somewhere. It does not matter where you are starting from. There is always a path from the point of origin to the destination. The important thing to consider is that you cannot start from anywhere but where you are right now.
Where you are at the point of decision must be where you begin…you have no choice in this matter. It is the destination that is important and the only effect that the starting point has on the outcome is in determining the possible paths you will travel. Starting from where you are is a given but knowing and understanding that initial point is one of the most important steps you can take.
Where are you starting from? Be brutally honest with yourself about where you are right now. This is the first step in determining how you will get to where you want to be.
