Would You Make It If You Were Lost At Sea?

I was surfing through a quotations app on my iPhone and I came across this gem from Saint Augustine.

“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”

Our goal here at jtcina.com is to help you become your best self through strategic communications. However, central to your success is a high degree of self awareness. You can’t be strategic without a strong understanding of who you are and what you want.

This is clearly a timeless issue if Saint Augustine was writing about it in the first century. Perhaps the key here iswonder. Can you investigate yourself if you aren’t curious?

Take a moment right now and put yourself into an unlikely hypothetical situation. For example, how might you react if you find yourself lost at sea? Would you surprise yourself?

Perhaps you need a reason to be curious. But I challenge you to imagine an unlikely scenario and how you might handle it. It’s no wonder you aren’t amazed with your life when your life feels like it belongs on a production line, with tomorrow cut from the same cloth as today. Imagine tomorrow to be completely different and rediscover a you that’s worth discovering.
