How Will You Get There?

So, which of the modes of transportation that you see in the graphic will you take? (And, let's add a graphic of someone walking, shall we?).
"Uh, it depends on where I'm going!"
And, on top of that, depending on where you are going - especially how FAR you are going - will even determine if you use just ONE of the shown modes of transportation OR if you end up using SEVERAL of the shown modes of transportation!
For example, you may take a trip that would require you to walk down the street (walking), grab a cab (automobile) or get on a bus (bigger automobile) to be taken to the airport so that you could board a plane (uh, a plane). Then, upon landing you may have to either rent ANOTHER automobile or grab another cab or bus and maybe even have to board a ferry or a ship to continue on your destination.
Does the fact that you had to use SEVERAL modes of transportation in order for you to reach your destination make this trip a failure?
Then why is it so easy for us to see this logic in the above example but NOT see it when trying to apply it to your journey to reach your goals and dreams?
Too many people think that you MUST stick to one "mode of transportation" to get from point A to point B when it comes to these things.
Stick to this particular job! Don't quit this job or don't change jobs! Stay with this one company for 40 years and you will have success!
Hey friend, that train left the station long ago - the reality of that type of thinking does NOT exist any longer!
In the same way, thinking that you must stick to ONE "business opportunity" or "work from home" system in order to be successful is ludicrous!
Sure, sometimes we are tempted to give up too soon, BUT, are we giving up on our goals and dreams or are we giving up on this particular means of "transport" along our way?
For me, if I don't enjoy what I'm doing and if I don't have 100% belief and conviction in what I'm doing then I'm going to STOP doing that thing!
Yes, I understand that NOTHING is ever 100% perfect and enjoyable, but that is not what I'm talking about. But, friend, if you don't believe in what you do you will NEVER be successful using that mode of "transport" toward your goals and dreams.
Who cares (and, by the way, whose business is it to care about this but YOU?) if you change ways of getting there several times?
JUST GET THERE and enjoy the journey along the way! Too many times we miss out on the journey and what takes place on the journey.
Hey, remember this: Even if you DO take two steps forward and one step back, you are STILL making progress! You are STILL one step ahead of where you were!
Thanks for your time today. Don't ever forget to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
