Keys to your future self. Suddenly, the path appears clear as day. You just see it, your future self… doing something, feeling something, being somewhere, with someone. Crystal clear. At least parts of it. From my personal experience, this happens after a metaphorical slap in the face that is meant to help. It stops the waiting. It clears the mist.
The pain of the slap goes away very fast, and leaves clarity and strategy, and eagerness to dwell, a little bit, in the joy of enlightenment combined with the happy expectations of things to come.
