The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
My black lab, Mia, and I were out for an evening walk a few minutes ago. One of the things I’ll miss about our house in here in Massachusetts is the amazing nature just steps from our front door.
Mia’s 15 years old. Her eyes and ears don’t work so well anymore, but her nose remains stellar. As we began our walk, three wild turkeys were walking up the aqueduct about 40 yards ahead of us.
Mia immediately picked up the scent, ducked her head, and began following the path the turkeys had moments earlier. Despite my attempts to get her attention, she never looked up to see them as they sauntered silently away.
Are you like Mia. Do you approach the world in the same way each day and wonder why you keep getting the same results. Opportunity might be right in front of you and you miss it because you’re only “using your nose” and not all your senses to see those opportunities and take advantage of them.
I’ve always loved the Marcel Proust quote above. He reminds us the solution to this dilemma – get up each day and look at the world in new ways. Drop your habitual way of seeing things, doing things, and thinking about things. The moment you do, I swear, there will be turkeys in your path you didn’t see before.

One of the great things about little kids is they are not as afraid as we adults to not know what they want. It’s totally OK sometimes to not know what you want. Stay with it. Go within. Your answers are there.

Whether they’re individuals or organizations, we follow those who lead not because we have to, but because we want to. We follow those who lead, not for them, but for ourselves.” ~ Simon Sinek

Thoughts are the vehicle of our dreams, but feelings are the fuel for the vehicle. We are emotional beings and our feelings drive us to do powerful things -some positive and some negative. If we can harness the power of our feelings in a positive way, Goddard is saying we can literally change our destiny.
No one is beyond hope. No one is beyond help. No on is beyond discovering and owning their bliss.
