Which path do you take? The one already paved or the one not-yet carved out? 🤷♀️
One of my favorite poems of all time is The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. The poem ends with three iconic lines:
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."
Clearly, we know the path Mr. Frost preferred.
The un-carved path, that one not taken, is not always an easy one to follow. Some of us have a hard time even finding it to begin with. And, let's face it. Following a path that someone else has laid out for you is easier. Predictable. You always know what to expect, at least with some degree of certainty. And know that more people have followed that path, too, makes it even more of a tempting way to go.
I think about all of the ads out there for the "proven systems" and the "guaranteed formulas" and the "magic money maker super formula extraordinaire"... (did I make that last one up?)
They all sound great. They all promise big results. I know I tried a few myself, and they didn't seem to get me where I wanted to go. So that brings me to this one question...
