Motivation | Leave a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Where will you leave a trail?

Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favorite writers. If you ever need some inspiration, considering reading Self-Reliance. ūüíē

Do you remember when you were little and you felt like you could conquer the world?  Like anything you put your mind to you could accomplish.  If you wanted to grow up to be a superhero Рyou could be a superhero!  Nothing stood in your way.

I think¬†that as time goes on, you start to become more aware of other peoples’ opinions of you and you become conscious of limitations, which hinders your potential to take bigger leaps of faith. ¬†It’s nothing physical per say, but an emotional shift that affects you mentally. ¬†In a way, maybe it’s negative thinking or¬†maybe a break in your¬†confidence or self-esteem. ¬† But that’s all it is, a mental limitation which makes you feel a certain type of way.

Don’t let negative thoughts take up space in your mind. ¬†You can¬†still be a superhero!¬†Maybe not literally fly, but you can do it in other ways. ¬†Why stop yourself now? ¬†Why not take that vacation, or make that move, or take that class you’ve been considering. ¬†No one says you have to jump in all at once. ¬†Start¬†by getting your toes wet, then see where you go from there. “A little step may be the beginning of a great journey.”
