Are you living someone else’s life?

If you see footsteps in front of you, it is not your path…

An executive coaching client of mine wanted to build a monster company with floor after floor of employees. After plowing deep into his purpose, he realized that was someone else’s dream. What he really wanted was a lifestyle business that allowed him the opportunity to engage passionately in his avocations.

The poet David Whyte says, “If you see the footsteps in front of you, you know it is not your path.”

Are you walking on someone else’s path? Is it time to take a turn into the scary place that is your own?
