The road

There is a road that leads from where you are this very moment all the way to the best life you can possibly imagine. There is a road that leads from this very place where you find yourself today, all the way to your most treasured dreams.

Though it will sometimes be rocky and it will often be a steep climb, it’s a road that you’re free to take whenever you decide you’re ready. As you travel the road you will learn, you will grow, you will achieve, you will bring about the very best of your possibilities.

Though it might seem nice to just skip the road and to arrive instantly at your dreams, doing so would drain all the value from those dreams. Because what makes those dreams meaningful to you in the first place is the person you’ll become in reaching them.

The road ahead is difficult and it is wonderful. What a grand opportunity you have to travel it! Enjoy and get the most from every step, for that is where you’ll find the richness of your life.
