David was hiking solo on a trail and came upon a junction a mile in. He took out his map but then followed the group who appeared to know the way. David continued hiking along but had a hunch something was up when the trail leveled out and a field appeared. The same field for which he started from. David was perplexed. The other hiking group ahead of them stopped as well. They all congregated and looked at David’s map. They took the wrong turn. Hiking two miles out of their way.
Disappointed, David was upset at himself. He was smart enough to bring a map for a trail he had never been on before. Why did he follow the other group who didn’t even have a map? Simply. It was the easy thing to do.
Where have you lost your own way?
Where can you take the lead (or continue to lead) when you already know you have the correct tools?
How can you trust your leadership instead of following another’s footsteps?
Only you know the right path to follow. You have your own unique purpose, qualities, and experiences. Following what someone else did, does not mean it’s the right thing for you.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
