Taking The Road Less Traveled

I am certain you know the road I am referring to. It may very well be that you’re on such a path now? It’s rarely an easy one and often filled with those that make claims that things can’t be done.

Have you ever noticed that when you’re attempting to pursue something new in your life you run across people that (often unknowingly) fill you with doubts? When this happens it’s imperative that we keep in mind that it’s not necessarily that they doubt us, but rather that they doubt that they would be capable of pulling off such an effort themselves.

I think we all have a tendency to try and base a task on our own experiences. For example, you might say to me “Josh, what do you think of me climbing Mount Fuji?”. Now since I am not big on heights, if I were to base your question on my own life experiences I would say that sounds like a crazy idea! The sad part is that if you were to take my answer as the absolute truth you might have missed another great adventure in your life.

It’s your life, LIVE BIG
