“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”
But what is that “step”?
It is not necessarily a physical one at all.
It’s more mental.
It’s a thought or an idea.
It’s a maddening power that has taken over our minds.
We can’t stop thinking about it and it haunts our every move.
The journey of a thousand miles, we might argue, begins with a decision.
We have two paths in front of us. One leading down the route to pursue this idea further and one suppressing it and smoldering the flame.
It’s a choice.
It’s a decision that ends up making a thousand more decisions for us.
The question becomes a simple one then.
Which path are we going to venture down today?
