But How Do We Get There?

There’s a millions ways to get to where you’re going. Robert Frost wrote a poem about taking the path less traveled. But I often wonder does it really matter that you take the unbeaten path. Henry David Thoreau talks about how quickly paths are created. So if we really think about it, the beaten path might not be traveled by a million others but by one consistent individual. That’s no good reason to turn around and go the other way.

Take the path. Why make things harder? Why refuse the help if it makes things easier? Why not take the easy path to get to where you’re going?

The first saying that comes to mind is, “what comes easy, goes easy. “

This quote has its place, but not here. When I talk about taking the easy path, I don’t mean skip your daily healthy habits. I mean, if you’re intentional about doing small things daily that positively impact your future self, and what you’ve been waiting for comes straight to you, take it! I get it, investing in small ways daily can make you feel like you’re not doing enough but let me share with you what water has taught me, consistency is a mighty force.

So how do you get to where you’re going? Not by working the hardest but by being consistent in intentional ways.

So I must leave you with this popular quote

Work smarter, not harder.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. My guess is it’s best to just open our eyes. These habits our society has created over the millennia make us sleepy. Does that resonate? In the end, things are only difficult because we are swimming against the current. Then again, I have a childish viewpoint.
