Quote of the Day:
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” Henry David Thoreau
Meaning of the Quote:
Indeed, sometimes a person is not in sync with his associates in terms of the path they are following in life. However, he must follow his own path even if he is alone or it is a path that only a few are willing to take.
Discussion of the Quote:
You may have to deviate from the journey of your companions. You can no longer keep pace with them. Instead, you have to follow your heart and the music of a different drummer even if it is measured or far away.
Some are afraid to depart from the norm or what is expected of the mass. However, a selected few are courageous enough to step away from the expected path. Therefore, they decide to forge a different path and follow the road less traveled and no matter how lonely or long it maybe they are willing to go the distance.
In life and also in business, we have to follow our own paths. This is done in our businesses when we choose particular niches and then begin our individual business journey. We maybe alone but here at Wealthy Affiliate we always have the help and support of our amazing community as we travel along our paths. We are in business for ourselves but we have people to help make this journey more adventurous.
Most importantly, we must follow our paths. Step to the music we hear even if it is not the same as that of our associates. It maybe measured and far away but follow it anyway. You just might be better because you did.
I appreciate your time and your comments.
To our success!
