Well we are on Day 3 Search for Identity, and we are beginning to quickly find out that any journey begins with a decision to actually move. Self-discovery is no different, the journey begins when you move toward something that at that moment is just an obscure blob on the horizon. Let me tell you a cute story.

Once there was a Rabbi walking out of the gates of Jerusalem and a Roman soldier shouted down form the lookout tower. 

“Halt, who goes there?”

The Rabbi, turned, looked up at the soldier and answered “If you can tell me then I will give you all of my wealth and more because you are more me than I am!”

The knowledge of who you are and what you are to do is a changing principle and a moving target. There are no destinations in life, simply a change of trains and lifestyles and the only obstacle is that you will not get off one train and board another.

Listen, stopping to listen to the crowd on the platform of life will merely confuse you, constrict you and box you into the journey they have set for themselves. 

Napoleon said it like this, “I can no longer obey, I have tasted command and I will not give it up!”  In other words when you get a feel for a new journey simply refuse to board the wrong train and head down the wrong track. He knew he was a leader, even though others had not seen it, he demanded it! 

Do you know what? He got it too!!!!

The sun will rise daily and will set every evening, however the only input you have is simply where you will watch it from!
