Everyone has a story. Some are more dramatic than others, but drama lies in the telling, in focusing on the twist that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, the mundane into the inspirational.
When you feel poised for success and you’re met with failure, what do you do? When you hear two voices arguing inside your head, one telling you to play it safe and one telling you to risk everything, how do you choose?
We all find ourselves there at one time or another. In fact, if we pay attention, we’ll notice that we come to those crossroads every day, perhaps many times each day. When we look back at the road we’ve traveled, will we celebrate the choices we’ve made or lament the opportunities we’ve missed?
The answer lies before us, not behind us.
Robert Frost did not urge us to take the road less traveled by others, but the road less traveled by ourselves. And that is what makes all the difference.
