Why are you trying so hard? Wouldn’t it be easier to turn around? Isn’t it safer to stick with what you know? These are but a few of the questions we hear from naysayers. It’s especially true when we’re talking about doing something religious, spiritual, or whatever term you want to associate with your personal journey.
Our answers will vary based upon what our ultimate goal is, and the reality is that it doesn’t matter what your answer is. The important point is that you don’t have to answer at all. If we were discussing a vacation route, a work task, or some other worldly thing, we would. When it comes to our personal journey, though, no discussion is necessary.
In my case, I want to live as this website is monikered, C2PK. How I plan to get there, what I plan to do along the way, and what I’ll achieve when I arrive are all personal. Even if I were to try to explain it, there would still be confusion. My case is not unique. We’re all motivated by different things and value things differently as well.
So, what is the point of all this? It may appear to others that you’re on a sidewalk to nowhere, but if it’s the sidewalk you’ve chosen, the journey will undoubtedly be worth it. Just keep walking.
