about doing stuff the hard way

People usually have objectives to achieve. Not many, maybe one or two (three?), but they all have.

Some people set possible targets, and very often get to them sooner or later; it is satisfying for everyone involved in the process.

But what if someone sets their standards too high in the sky?

The funny thing is that such a being would take interesting steps throughout the way, accomplishing what many would think impossible in a vain effort of getting a little bit closer to their dream.

In the end, they will have unraveled a humongous amount of mystery and conquered a respectful bunch of what was thought to be absolutely impossible.

But the feeling of incompetence… for never having been able to jump that extra inch higher (which was the big idea since the beginning), will prevent them from  acknowledging every single one of their other victories.

    Hopefully, that person has someone who has been a witness to their life…to their amazing accomplishments…a person to offer a reassuring perspective. Sometimes we are so caught up in looking at our lives with a magnifying glass we don’t step back to look at the big picture. Can I offer that life and goals aren’t about the end result, but rather the journey taken(By the way, I love reading your blog. You always have such great thoughts to ponder).

    Is the fear of ‘incompetence’ going to prevent you from dreaming ? That’s the question…
    The accomplishment of these ‘easy’ targets would bring no satisfaction after a while, and that person would feel nothing…..just the emptiness of his life….
    Its like Jessica said, doesn’t matter if u get there or not , but the road taken….
