Slow Climb

When you feel the push, the best course is to continue to let it unfold. The amount of effort to hold back something that gathers momentum is not worth it.

Whatever strong force you experience, identify if it’s passion or resistance. Sometimes when faced with someone’s tremendous intensity, a person closes down because they cannot meet it.

Another person jumps on the coattails and enjoys the ride.

Still another may simply resist, because the idea was not theirs.

Know where you are on the spectrum and make certain that you choose the path in your best interest. There’s no glory in fighting the tide if in the end it’s a win.

There can be a lot of shiny objects that distract, but keep your eye on what you value. The direction becomes clear when you sift down to the core value, every time.
