The Road

I just want to give a quick word.

Whenever you are starting out on a new endeavor, understand that people are not going to see the vision.

When you are working on creating a new reality, the remnants of the old reality will stop at nothing to conspire to keep you there.

You have to come to the realization that you are no longer like the people on your reality so they cannot see the vision you see.

If you don’t believe me, try this test. This requires that you understand what kind of reality you are in.

Go up to someone in your current reality and talk with them about something you consider is “in the box.” Something that is characteristic of your current shared circumstances.

Now talk about a grand dream you want to accomplish. 9 times out of 10 a person who is deeply rooted in that reality will look at you funny.

I’m another reality, the reality you are working on walking into, that “grand dream” is normal. It’s characteristic of that world.

No one is going to believe in you.

Even when you make it, they still won’t believe in you. They will say that it was “luck.”

If you are feeling discouraged, don’t be. You have to accept the fact that this is a LONELY road because it is bumpy, rocky, has a lot of potholes in it, dark, scary…you name it.

Many people would rather suffer in their current known reality, than take the road to a unknown destination that yields luxury.

They cling to their suffering because it is familiar to them.

Do not believe the people who took the dark roads of the unknown who tell you:

“I wish I were back where you are.”

It is a lie.

Carving out your own path is beautiful. You can make it whatever you want to make it. These roads don’t all lead to the same destination.

I just finished a day of working for myself. I’m suppose to be resting but I love building what I’m building so much that I couldn’t help it!

Do it for you!

Don’t listen to the naysayers because you are just a reminder of how lazy they are.

They wish they had the drive, motivation, discipline you have.

Do not allow them to get in your head.

You are on this road to the unknown because you know what it is like here. There is nothing for you here.

Get out there.

Your friend.

About Anthony Boyd

I go by the alias Anthony Boyd & this blog is my series of theses on philosophy, spirituality, physical expression of strength & human behavior through self-reflective spoken & written word. I’ve been a Union Delegate for 6 years. During this time I have developed countless leadership skills that I’ll be sharing with you all on this blog. Leadership is something I’ve develop through hours of research, strength training & personal application of growth strategies. I started this blog with the intention of disseminating the leadership & developments skills I’ve attained over the past 6 years as a leader because there is a huge need for male leadership. It has developed into a conduit for sharing these ideas in hopes that others can gain insight from them as well. Two things have always been constant in my three decades of life on Earth, my ability to express myself through the word & my unquenchable curiosity of everything around me. Combine that with my obsession with strength training, personal development & we have this blog. It is my hope that I can provide endless value, insight and perspective gained through experience as a leader to the readership I have developed here.
