Amazing these things we call paths. Paths are created. The more people walk on a path the harder it gets. Paths are ways of thinking and behaving and doing and being. Paths are patterns. Paths are habits. And most of all paths are your unique strengths.
Oh, The Places You'll Go!
Just follow the yellow brick road.
I’ve finally decided my future lies beyond the yellow brick road.
What if there really were two paths? I would want to be on the one that leads to awesome.
If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.
Faith walks out when fatigue walks in.
Ever notice that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, but anyone going faster is a maniac?
Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.
Every man has his own vocation. Talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him… He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one; on that side all obstruction is taken away and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Never change for the mainstream – stay in your lane, and if you’re talented and resilient enough the mainstream will come to you.
If you aren’t sure what to do, just take a tiny step – a tiny baby step…Even if you don’t know the exact path to success – take a baby step. You may not know the optimal path to get where you are bound to go, but your boots are on and you’re going… And something will come of that. You’ll get some feedback and take the next step. If it’s the wrong direction, no worries…And then you’ll take another step, which might lead you to a person who can help or to a resource you didn’t even know existed. Keep the steps as tiny as they need to be as you feel your way.
Imagine a map – its network of highways and byways, meandering rural roads, and five-lane freeways all leading to potentially interesting destinations. Without a sense of where you want to go, it’s overwhelming. However if you know your destination is Los Angeles, then you can focus on the roads that will take you there.
~Johnson O’Conner Research Foundation
No one paves the road for you. You have to create your own path. If you believe in your dreams, embrace what makes you different and bet on yourself, the destination will be greater than you ever imagined.
~Cris Abrego, Reality Show Producer, author of Make It A Reality
Wisdom is knowing the right path to take… Integrity is taking it.
~Mac Anderson, founder of Successories
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety; If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without any pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret in this for anyone who can grasp it.
There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.
The reason that so few people are financially independent today is that they place many negative roadblocks in their heads. Becoming wealthy is, in fact, a mind game.
~Thomas J. Stanley
The person who clears the path ultimately controls its direction, just as the canvas shapes the painting.
"Leader" is Indo-European word that is derived from two words. The first part - "lea" means path, and the second part - "der" - means finder. A leader is a pathfinder. Leaders find the path. They are readers of the signs and clues. They see and show the way.
~Kevin Hall, from Aspire
The path to the true self lies in the acceptance of and service to the larger “we”.
There are two distinct kinds of successful people. There are what I call river people and the goal people.
We’ve been trained to go A to B in our lives. The champion goes to B first, illuminates a pathway from B back to A that pops like a runway at night. Illuminating this pathway working in reverse is the key to successful planning. Go B to A then back A to B.
Wherever you go, there you are.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...
Success comes to those who run their own race, at their own pace, on their own track.
Write the vision and make it plain on tablets that he may run who reads it.
What do you really want in your life? And where are you on the path towards what you really want?
Don’t brag about your lightning pace, for slow and steady won the race.
5 years from now you will arrive… The question is where?
Whenever he could, he sought out a new road to travel.
~The Alchemist by Paul Coelho
Choose a path that lets you be extraordinary.
The future is always sneaking up from behind.
We need a compass and a place to go. But the road to that place is rarely straight and never absolute.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
Step away from what doesn’t matter.
Buy the ticket. Take the ride.
~Hunter S. Thompson
Always buy the “E-Ticket”.
The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind.
Brains aren’t designed to get results; they go in directions. If you know how the brain works you can set your own directions. If you don’t, then someone else will.
I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Your personality style is a kind of map of both your inner geography and the outward direction of your life. You follow its path everyday of your life.
~John Oldham M.D. and Lois Morris
A man driven by curiosity will often discover that he is riding on a train whose tracks he did not lay, one small part of a pattern bigger than he can see.
~Roy H. Williams
Direction, Not Motion. It’s not how fast you’re moving, it’s how effectively you are advancing in the right direction.
~Robert K. Cooper
The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.
~Unknown Wise Person
There is no royal flower-strewn path to success.
~Sarah Breedlove, AKA Madam C.J. Walker
