The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

If you fail don’t give up; come at it differently. Its not always necessary to do things the way they have always been done. Likewise, it is not necessary to do what has always been done. Achieving our goals may require using a road that has been less traveled, if traveled at all.

 Once we fail some of us will abandon our goal. Others will attempt to reach their goal using the same methods that resulted in failure; I believe they call that insanity. I know so many people who leave prison to return to their old ways of living. I think the worst part of their return is their expectations: They expect a different outcome than prison. INSANITY!

 I am reminded of Rap artist who abandoned the traditional ways of getting a record deal with a major label and tried something innovative. They started their own labels, created their own buzz and caught the eyes of the major labels. Instead of getting the traditional they got never heard of deals.

 Just because everyone you know is turning right in attempts to reach their goal it doesn’t mean you have to.

 As the old saying goes there is more than one way to skin a cat. In fact, there is profit in figuring out a new way of reaching your goal successfully. Your innovative process for goal achievement can be given to people who need a helping hand.

Look at history, the people who set off on their own path and went against tradition, the norm, the herd and didn’t give up are rich and famous. They live on through their achievements. As long as we have planes the Wright Brothers will live on, as long as we have light Edison will live on.

Don’t give up, failure is an opportunity to try something out of the box. As times change so do ways of thinking, so do problems, so do solutions and methods of finding those solutions. Solutions to our problems are found on that obscure path, if they weren’t there would be no such thing as problems.

I have mad the mistake of taking the road less traveled . But to me, It was just a way out of having to work hard. I had to set goals for myself , and putting for the work and effort. I’m finally at a point in life were I want more.
