Some of the very best places are far off the beaten path

It’s certain though that if you don’t try, you’ll for sure never get there, you’ll for sure never do anything worthwhile, or anything that really changes the world for the better.

Never let go of the curiosity, never become too busy to chase down wonder and explore new places.

The day we don’t have enough time to, slow down and contemplate life, explore something new, try something for the first time, or just chat with a new friend, is the same day we lose a lot of what actually matters in life. 

Sometimes the greatest opportunities are just down the road.

How much more boring life would be if we always knew exactly what to expect in every circumstance in every situation.

Wisdom is built solidly on a foundation of learning from mistakes and experience.

Embrace life’s experiences, the good and the bad, let them teach you what you need to be prepared and realize that all of those skills are the irreplaceable foundation of wisdom. 

Journeys are not always comfortable, glamorous, or even all that fun.

Sure the drive up on a nice road is convenient, but getting there the slow way, the better way, the “one step at a time” approach is always the best.

Always take a moment and enjoy the view

Except sometimes it’s important to stop, take a deep breath and take in the view. 

Some paths are cold, rainy, muddy, and just freaking wonderful.

If you always take the paved sidewalk, you won’t get dirty, but you won’t find the real adventures, you won’t get to experience all this life really has to offer.

You’re not always going to do things perfectly;  consistent, purposeful effort will put you at an advantage over everyone else.

Most give up before they start, and if they do start, they give up when it gets hard. Brother, it gets hard early on in the journey, and it stays hard for a long time. 

Take the responsibility of teaching seriously.

Today’s fathers need to spend LESS time playing Call of Duty, and more time on their “calling” and “duty” as fathers.

 
 

Sometimes you find the most interesting things when you cross over to the other side.

When was the last time you took the time or spent the effort to put yourself in someone else’s seat? To “walk a mile in their shoes?”
