The Road Less Travelled
This is your time to step out onto the road less travelled. An entrepreneur’s journey has no final destination - each experience they encounter can change their course of direction at any time, opening new doors to lead them into new places. The change of direction inspires them to seek and discover more than they set out to find. Entrepreneurs never aim to complete their ideas, but find ways to expand them through innovation and risk-taking as much as they can.
"Almost everything worthwhile carries with it some sort of risk, whether it’s starting a new business, whether it’s leaving home, whether it’s getting married, or whether it’s flying in space."
- Chris Hadfield
The time for adventure is now! As excitement fuels you, will you travel with your hands gripped to the stirring wheel, nose nearly touching the window, or will you let the roof down to feel the wind on your face and maybe drop into cruise control to go with the flow?
Entrepreneurs often have both hands gripped tight when bends and turns approach them at speed, but letting the roof down and enjoying the wind in their hair after each challenge passes them. Long journeys are not always the comfiest, and we are often advised to take lots of short breaks in between in order to
break up the journey, allow ourselves to stay refreshed, and prevent our bodies seizing up.
As an entrepreneur, you will experience times of discomfort, so schedule regular breaks to refuel and refresh your thinking before the next move is to be made. Successful business people see and understand the benefits of taking part in regular exercise to de-stress and maximise peak performance. Understanding and knowing how to get the best out of themselves, they must consistently serve their bodies well in order to be in the best condition to continue their journey.
"Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things when they are small.
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step"- Lao Tzu
