The way to the top is long and winding.... or is it?
Maybe that's just what you've been told.
Maybe that's just an excuse people had for never even starting on their journey...
or maybe they just want to prevent you from reaching your peak.
The truth is, who knows? You can sit there and theorize about what others told you, but what you want is to find a way to get there.
The top. The beautiful, shining, summit overlooking the vast expanse. You are done... complete. You have achieved everything you want and it's beautiful.
The questions still remains though: will it take a lot of effort to get there, or won't it?
You might think yes... but I'm here to say, despite what you may have been told and previously believed: no, it doesn't take a lot of effort.
You don't have to climb the mountain path, traverse the river rapids, or fight the enemy's army...
Unless you really want to.
The journey is fun, dynamic, and you learn a lot. But sometimes it helps to stop focusing on learning...
and start focusing on moving.
In reality: The number one way to get to where you want to is just to get there.
It usually just takes a few, concrete, steps in the right direction (often the direction you've been avoiding) and then boom.
And the best part?
You already know the way to go, it's been right in front of you this whole time, you just might not have had the cojones to go through with it...
Hopefully, at least, that's why you're reading this. You're ready to take the few, easy, obvious steps that have always been right in front of you and transcend.
Easy? Is that what I said?
Yes, it will look easy, though it may feel difficult.
So in a way, it might not be easy, but it will be effective.
Take the journey you have to, so you don't have to take a journey you don't need to.
See you at the top.
