It is easy for Madeleine Renaud to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Madeleine Renaud needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Madeleine directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Renaud's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
