My Path is Not His Path
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. -Proverbs 15:22
Consider the advice from a wise man, however, it’s a consideration, not a determination.
I have to be willing to blaze my own trail in order to live my dreams. My friend, and I, may start at one road and then it twists and turns into others. That doesn’t mean that I can’t take his advice, but it does mean that I need to follow my course.
One for All, and All for One?
When it comes to life, and business, this may not work the way we think. At the start of a venture with my colleague we may work together well and create a lot of synergy- then we come upon that “path” -the one which separates us. Along that path, my friend discovers shrubs… Mountain Cedar. He loves them! There are stars in his eyes. He sees the benefits and possibilities because Mountain Cedar is dry rot resistant, great for fence posts, and plentiful! Everywhere we look- Mountain Cedar.
But me, I’m allergic. Mountain Cedar causes him to thrive but, I can’t function. I can’t stand up. I can’t catch my breath. There is no inspiration. The sight and smell of Mountain Cedar disgusts me. So, he takes one path and I take another. We part as friends. We can still work on projects… just not on the Mountain Cedar path.
It’s important for me focus on what I want, and where I’m going. My vision has to be clear. We may start at the same place, and end in a different one.
My friend and I learn and agree…
“To thine ownself be true,”
Because, my path is not his path.
