The Path

The path

Imagine waking up and you find yourself alone in the woods. Looking around you quickly realize you have no idea where you are at or which way to go. Despair begins to creep in and fill you with dread. Sitting down, elbows on knees, chin in hands, you notice ahead of you a path. Had it been there before? Where does it lead? At the foot of the path is a rock with something scrawled on it, a note.

"This way, my friend."

Despair fades as you begin down the path. Not too far into your journey you see another rock displaying a note, "Careful here, this area is slippery. I have the bruises to prove it." You slowly make your way over the area with added caution, slipping slightly, but thankful for the warning.

Continuing down the path you come across more notes guiding you around more risky areas along the way.

Eventually, you find your way out of the woods. Looking back at the path you traveled, you recall the many times you were saved from certain misfortune by the notes on the rocks along the way. There were a few hazards with no rock warnings and for those you left your own rock note for those who may follow you.

Now, out of the woods, things are better. Yet, you know this is just the beginning. Will there be more notes on rocks? Will you leave notes for others?

Welcome to my blog

The story above is a great metaphor for why I started this blog. I have been traveling the path of becoming a better person my entire life. Along the way I have learned how to overcome many of the obstacles that stand in our way and this blog is my way of sharing that knowledge and experience with you.

It is my sincere hope that you will find the content here helpful in your own journey to become the person you truly want to be. For me this is a lifelong adventure. I have found many notes on rocks along the way and I want to share those with you, along with some of my own notes.

What to expect

Drawing from my own experiences I have developed techniques and methods to overcome the challenges faced when striving for personal growth. This system will work no matter your personal growth goals and focus.

But there is one part I cannot help with, and that is desire. You must truly want to change and become the person you truly want to be. If you can do that, if you can truly want to change who you currently are and grow into the person you want to be, then I can help.

Areas of change and growth include:

  • Personal health
  • Weight loss
  • Personal finance
  • Professional development
  • Relationships
  • And many more

This way, my friend
