More Than One Way to Get There

ales-krivec-2892.jpg

Naturally, clarity of your life’s ambition will help you get there. But lucidity of your vision will also foster creativity and cultivate resilience. For example, I want to help people (children and adults) feel empowered and be the best they can be through my writing and teaching. I applied for a job that would have helped me reach even more (students) than the 90 I help now. I received a letter of rejection and felt pretty awful. Until…

I realized there are many other ways to achieve my ultimate goal. I’m excited and energized all over again. “Failing” is just another way to readjust your road.

As Robert Frost infamously wrote:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.*
His point: know that there are more ways to get there and whatever you choose, you’ll be just fine.

 

*from Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Less Traveled”

  1. Dear Kismet,

    Your writing is empowering many people like me on the internet. So, this medium can be counted as another path to your ultimate goal, right?

    Always believe in yourself.
