"Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you."
Denis Waitley

The majority of people tend to go with the flow. Rather than blaze their own path to greatness, they instead choose to travel along life’s familiar, well worn path — going with the flow and following the rest of the crowd. They generally shy away from taking on life’s biggest challenges, preferring to remain in their comfy zone, refusing to rock the boat or go against the current. They never once realize that they’re on the road to nowhere.

The road to nowhere, although packed to the hilt, is easy to get on and difficult to exit. On the surface, it appears smooth and all downhill, making it look all the more attractive. In reality, this road is just as full of potholes, bumps and detours as the road to the top.

"Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines."
Robert Schuller

Instead of choosing the road to the top and making their lives everything they’ve ever dreamed they could be, far too many people still choose the road to nowhere — foolishly convincing themselves that it is more safe and secure.

The odds are too great they say; their chances of success too small. They reason that they’ve got too much too lose to take a chance or take a risk, choosing to stay where they are. They never once realize that they’re taking the biggest risk of all — the risk of doing nothing.

"Always make a total effort, even when the odds are stacked against you."
Arnold Palmer

When it comes to roads traveled, are you burning your own trail or are you instead plodding along someone else’s path? Do you take the congested route with the rest of the crowd or do you instead choose to make your own way, blazing your own trail? Getting on the right track is simply a matter of making up your mind to do whatever you need to do — whenever it is needed — in order to get where you want go.

Come on, if you’re not willing to forcefully grab control of your life and its direction, how can you realistically expect to end up where YOU WANT TO GO?

"Determination that just won't quit — that's what it takes."
A. J. Foyt

Like it or not, you’re going to have to cut against the grain and go against the current every once in a while if you’re ever going to make your mark. And yes, that can be a risky proposition. But the risk of doing nothing poses a far greater risk when you think about it.

Being successful and living the life you’ve always imagined takes courage and commitment. The courage to go against the odds, against popular opinion. The commitment to stick with your chosen path, in spite of the problems and obstacles encountered along the way. It’s doing what most people are unwilling to do, unwilling to try.

"I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
Robert Frost

The road to the top can prove challenging, with enough nerve racking twists and turns to knock you off track if allowed to do so. Oftentimes it seems like the odds are stacked against you as you wind your way along the uphill climb. Regardless of how hard you try and how hard you work, there always seems to be another roadblock or obstacle standing to overcome. It can get downright discouraging at times.

Yet there can be no better feeling on earth than sticking to your guns and coming out on top. Once you have scaled the summit and reached the top, you get to enjoy the view so few people ever see — the exhilarating vista one enjoys when sitting on top of the world

The Bottom Line: Have the courage to blaze your own path and we’ll soon see you at the top.
