Distinctions are important. They give us clarity.
Here’s an example I got from Ron Renaud (original source unknown):
A dream: an adult synergy of desire, imagination, and expectancy. A dream has a subtext of maximizing who you are, and a supertext of becoming more than you are.
A fantasy: an adolescent adventure in imagination with out any real desire and no solidly determined expectation. The “guts” are missing. The potential manifestation is seen as a threat and a source of fear rather than something to celebrate as a source of joy.
That’s pretty instructive. Gives you clarity about where to focus your energy as you make life decisions.
- Distinctions bring clarity.
- Clarity leads to good decisions.
- Decisions produce habits.
- Habits yield character.
- Character determines destiny.
If you are in a fog about your destiny, start by making good distinctions about your values. For help discovering your values and making good distinctions, see your coach.
