The easiest way to walk through the forest may be to follow the already-laid trail, but is that the most satisfying? For me it is often more fun and exciting to step off the trail and explore the woods in my own way. Besides a sense of adventure this provides access to areas that the majority of people don’t know and may never see.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
In your own life are you just doing what everyone else does or are you striving to do more than the norm. I urge you to be different, to be extraordinary. Listen to the advice and counsel of others but don’t be afraid to leave the main road. Life should be about forging your own path!
“Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.” – Abraham Lincoln
