Are You Going The Wrong Way?

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

-Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken

I remember watching Planes, Trains, and Automobiles with Steve Martin & John Candy when he was going the wrong way on the highway. The guy going the right direction started screaming “You’re going the wrong way!!!” to which John Candy (Dell Griffith was his name in the movie if my memory serves me) said, “How does he know which way I’m going?”

I would say this is true of most people trying to get traction to succeed. We all see how “fast” we can make money if only we got this one more trick under our sleeves, but that’s now how you succeed, not at all. Instead, ask yourself just ONE question:

“What value, gifts, or vision do I give to the world?”

You see it’s usually just the opposite, we all want to know what the world can give us, not what we can give it. Now I also recognize the opposite problem where people give give give great content but don’t receive like they should.

What is your problem? Are you giving your vision, your strengths, your talents, and what suits you best to the world? If not why not?

If you are why aren’t you receiving sales for your vision?

My suggestion is if you don’t belong to your strengths and/or vision stop what you are doing and get that down first. If you don’t know technical stuff online why in the world are you trying to master 12 different scripts and pieces of software which stop you from your strengths which might be communication.Conversely, don’t be the geek who becomes the great speaker, be the Great Geek first who becomes a speaker because everyone sees and indentifies with your strengths.

If you got the first part down the 2nd part is even easier, which is receiving… and that’s just accepting that your gifts provide value to others who willingly see how you enhance their life. Never be afraid to sell.

Now, go find your strength, and if you have, go get what is rightfully yours. Never let anything stop you, you are worth it.
