The Right Path For a New Year

It is easy to choose a path in life that has been well traveled by

many before you and crowed by many walking beside you.

There is safety in knowing the obstacles ahead, comfort and

warmth from the companionship of others and certainty in

the destination. Embarking on a journey into unknown

territory steely courage, an adventurous spirit, a

deep belief in oneself and simple hope

 for a better tomorrow.”

Marcy Blochowiak, CEO World Financial World    





As I see it. . . . . . . .

The right path for a new year


There will be many choices on what path to travel in your lifetime.


There is the path that so many have taken before you . . . . that path is easy to identify because you can see the ruts that have been worn into that path. The more the path is used the deeper the ruts become.


For those who on that path there seems to be a sense of safety in repetition. You will see the same people on the same path every day. They become familiar and comfortable with that path . . . . and that path has become a habit.


The same people get on the path everyday . . . . and get off it at night only to repeat . . . . the same journey day after day. The journey starts at the same place everyday . . . . and seems to end at the same place every night. If the person were to look back on their journey they would see that they are where they started . . . . and they have not made any meaningful forward progress.


There is also another path which is much harder to find . . . . there’s no signs that reads the road to success. The path is there but is used by far fewer people . . . . so it not so easy to indentify. When you’re looking for footprints to follow they may be hard to find . . . . so you have to decide to leave your own footprints for others to follow.


When you choose to take this path you will become a trail blazer.


As a trail blazer . . . . You will have step out of the rut of your current path . . . . You choose to create your own path to explore new territory and new opportunities.  


You have to have the courage to step out of the safety of your rut . . . . And have the confidences in yourself to step into the unknown . . . . and onto the path of personal growth . . . . and greater success.  


Staying on your current path you see the same view everyday . . . .  and your results will remain the same with no meaningful improvement.


Choose the right path for you for the  new year . . . . The one that will let you grow into the person that you want to be . . . . and to achieve the results that you want to achieve. The path is there for you . . . . but you will have to create it . . . . and make the choice to step onto the path. Choose the step out of the rut . . . . and onto the path that will continue move in the directions of fulfilling your dreams . . . . and achieving your goals

Hi Lou Ludwig, we all have that proverbially "fork in the road" we have to address from time to time.  You have to feel comfortable in your skin to pick the road less traveled!
