I went for a walk the other day and I stopped to watch these geese. For a while they were all together in the river and, from my perspective, seemed to be enjoying their time in the water. Then, unexpectedly, one of the geese started to head up river, and, as if they were all tied to an invisible string, they all departed in unison, one after another—without question. No one objected or squawked, “That’s not what I want to do!”
We spend a lot of our life doing what is expected of us, at work and at home. We often don’t choose the path less traveled, we choose the path that everyone has traveled—that isn’t always a bad a thing, but it isn’t always a good thing either. Don’t you ever look at life and say, “I don’t want to do what everyone else did! I don’t want to follow. I want something completely different.” Most of us have said this at least once in our life, or thought it, but then we realized how scary it is to blaze a path. It’s much easier to simply follow in tow.
Today, this post is for the brave! It’s also for the completely petrified. If you are having the, “I don’t want to follow,” thought, I am offering a free 30-minute call to breathe some life into this idea. Maybe you’ll move forward with it or maybe you won’t, but isn’t this thought worth exploring? This great idea is about to die on the vine, like many of our other thoughts that we don’t follow through with because we are scared. Don’t be a goose—following the follower isn’t getting us anywhere good, it’s only getting us aimlessly behind another goose. Give it some thought. I’m right here to support you!
Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
