"People take different roads seeking fulfilment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've got lost."
Like a lot of quotes that I'm sure you all see it got me thinking. This quote is so true.
We all have our roads in life and we decide what road we will travel on and most people travel on it. Sometimes the road is smooth, sometimes it is bumpy, sometimes it is uphill, sometimes it is downhill and sometimes it is downright treacherous. It is your road however and you have created it so what gives other people the right to say that you are on the wrong road?
Why do they say that you are on the wrong road?
There are many reasons but the number one reason is that they can't understand your road. It is beyond their comprehension so they will try and bring you back to the pack so to speak. If you can do something that they can understand then they can feel relaxed and most importantly advise you on 'stuff.'
In his book, The Millionaire Fastlane MJ DeMarco talks about three different types of roads:
All of these have different people on these roads and they are doing their thing.
On the Sidewalk they are living month to month. The people in the Slowlane are religiously saving in the pension accounts and working for 50 years until they retire. The people in the Fastlane are building businesses so that they have options in a few years.
Which one is right?
It depends on the person. It depends on their goals and objectives. It might be different from you but it doesn't make them wrong. In fact the road they are on may be the correct one for you. Don't dismiss it. Have an open mind
