Just Because There Is A Road.

That’s not a good enough reason to head in a particular direction. Just because there is a lane and a fast surface doesn’t mean you’ll end up where you want to be.

Sometimes the road takes you where everyone else is. Not on top. But in the middle.

And if your goals are grandiose, crazy, or bold, the road probably won’t end up leading you there.

Because the road is for safety, not adventure. For speed, not purpose.

And that’s not bad.

It’s just not for you. Not if you want more for yourself.

Not if you’re a dreamer, a wanderer, a fighter, or obsessed with outrageous vision.

The road is just a distraction. Ignore it.

Aim for where you want to be and leave a trail.
