What typically happens when you make a trip from point A to point B is you make the plan or intention to travel. If it’s a place you’ve never been before, you follow some kind of direction–a road map. And if you continue on that direction, you will eventually arrive at your destination.
Isn’t it nice to know that the same principle applies to life?
This quote, by Earl Nightingale, illustrates our goals and dreams as destinations we’re trying to reach. It all begins with having the plan or desire to get there. Often that goal or dream directs us to the unknown. So we need to rely on a road map. And in life, we would have to create that road map for ourselves. But that’s not all. We can never truly get to our destination if we all of a sudden decide to pull up to the side of the road. We have to press on. Eventually, we will get there.
