Nothing of note has ever been accomplished by following in someone else's foot steps. While on the path to success advisers, mentors, and coaches shape the foundations and mindset of the great ones, it is in taking that confidence to the next level that allows them to go out on their own and make a name for themselves in their field. This trailblazing mentality is what has set apart the men and women that have shaped their industries and created the world in which they wanted to live and the success that they wanted to achieve.
"There is no path. The path is made by walking." - Antonio Machado, Spanish Poet
"If you know where it's going, it's not worth doing." - Frank Gehry, Canadian/American Architect
"The essence of being is becoming." - Heraclitus, Pre-Socratic Greek Philosopher
"If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late." - Lee Iacocca, American Businessman
And in the same way that there is not a path the it laid out and obvious before them, their uncharted course may look scatterbrained and irresponsible to onlookers. It is brave new waters that they are sailing in and though there are missteps and setbacks along the way, they only serve to make them more resilient and committed to their Person Legend.
