Today there is much that remains in limbo, namely, where do we go from here. These concerns cause downturns in times of uncertainty and anxiety in times of incredulity, when we can’t believe the enormity of the challenges we face. Yet it is then that we must be brave and embrace with confidence what causes dissonance in our lives. Else we will seek to connive what should be confronted forthrightly however frightened we may be. Yet so many people consider themselves unequal to the threats they face and thus turn their face the other way. Characteristically, they lack the courage to be and the self-esteem indicative of maturity and the willingness to assume responsibility. They surrender to inevitability instead, as if what is is irreversible. In doing so, they exalt fate and double the weight they unwisely carry because they are wary of themselves.

Are you a goalie or a roadie? Are you guarding your dream or running from things that would help you to accomplish these? How do you stand the tease, the tears, the irrational fears that keep your feet moving and desire brooding for fulfillment? That's what I wonder when I sit in the window looking at others peeking around corners trying to escape opportunities that are unique and designed especially for them. Yet they refuse to embrace, let alone guard them. They prefer instead to travel along paths that are dim. Metaphorically, they are roadies who lack the boldness to pursue their dreams.

We arrive when we arrest irrational fears.

Occasionally we must ignore the path and the goal lest discouragement prevail, especially when problems increase. Then we should take the next step indifferent to all else, including ourselves. In doing so, we save energy and remain focused. In looking ahead we often fall behind ourselves. Winners resist this tendency because it wastes energy and wearies the soul.
