FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH
“Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another … The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness.”
— M. Scott Peck
We each have our own pathways to develop both personally and spiritually. They are based on our character and past experiences. No one else can identify our paths for us. Tune in to your inner guidance system and follow its direction.
“What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation.”
— Joseph M. Dodge

Your supply is truly limitless –

“Do not be too timid and squeamish. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s by taking those risks in life that we find out just what we can do, just what we are made of. Taking risks makes life an adventure. Like taking a white water rafting trip, it can be scary, but it can also be exhilarating, and when we come finish and we’re still okay it feels fantastic
