The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost, 1874 – 1963
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Today I was pondering the work of Robert Frost and the perspective he shared. The poet expressed the choice of taking one road or the other. The road less traveled by can indeed make all the difference.
Let me show you another view of the two roads that can make all the difference in your life.
Notice the difference between the high road and the low road. The person who makes the choice to grow and to invest in themself is making the same challenges and obstacles…sometimes we call them road blocks, into building blocks for a much brighter future. The person who makes the choice to grow continues to grow no matter what challenges they face.
Meanwhile, the person who chooses to complain continues to complain, no matter what challenges they face.
Bitter or Better?
The two choices are, will I be Bitter when challenges and road blocks get in the way, or will I be Better BECAUSE the road blocks gave me the ability to focus and to improve my life?
Most people do not change roads. It is only with great effort that some can finally escape the death trap of the wrong road.
Do you understand how important it is to be on the right road?
It is not too late to Invest In You!
Do you see how important this is?
You are worth it!
- You are good enough,
- you are strong enough,
- you are beautiful enough
- you are smart enough.
- You ARE enough to do what you were created to do.
- I believe in you.
I strongly believe that you and I were created for a special purpose and we are here for a very special reason.
Thank you for being there my friend.
