You probably know the Robert Frost poem that ends….

Somewhere ages and ages hence
I will be telling this with a sigh.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I
I took the road less traveled by
and that has made all the difference.

That quote is on my senior year book page (yes I got a whole page because there were only 20 of us in the whole senior class.

Anyway, that poem spoke to me then, and speaks to me now. I spoke a bit about it at The Rise and wanted to share a few key take aways with you too.

#1: You don’t get to the head of the pack, by following the pack.
Are you asking your friends who they coach with?
Are you looking around the room to see who else signed up for what you want?
Or do you REALLY think for yourself.
Be willing to stand up for what you believe in, and be willing to stand alone.

#2: What you want isn’t on the sidewalk
ou don’t need to run your business with reckless abandon… that’s not a good idea.
But if you’re hoping to be a wild success, while you are standing on the sidewalk holding the handrail, you might want to think again.
Success comes when you take a chance on yourself, try things about, and be willing to get some mud on your face along the way.
#3: The Road Your On, Doesn’t Take You Where You Want to Go
If the road you were on got you where you REALLY want to be, you’d be there already. So know that for big results, you usually have to venture to new places. Its going to feel scary, and uncertain, and that’s normal. 🙂

Know that to get something new you need to forge a new path, off the sidewalk, into the road NOT taken by the average person…. and down that path you’ll find less competition, greater adventures, and life-changing experiences.

Here are three questions to consider to help you along the way:

What is the next big thing you want to accomplish?

What will you need to leave behind in order to get there?
What will need to do / have / be?
