Choosing your own path is difficult and scary. It’s easy to benchmark our lives against others and follow the paths that those before us are known to have trodden. We have a saying in our republic “Fuata Nyayo za mzee” to mean follow the footsteps of your father. It is certain and safe, however there is a reward that follows when one dares to follow their own path.
We are unique and distinct in our own ways and I bet it is very fulfilling to follow your true north. Carve your niche and create your own path as your journey through this walk of life. It is fickle and brief; make it your goal to allow your inner man to find expression.
Schedule your pleasures, for sure pains will schedule themselves, take the high road and journey into the unknown and when you conquer your path, you will be recognised as a leader for a leader knows the way, shows the way and goes the way.
There is great reward in daring to follow your heart. Spoils go to the adventurer, who on his own accord, takes the first step and sees the journey to the end. It is not always the most popular path, but it has to be the path your soul yearns for. There could be signs that indicate you are on the right path however, your heart will guide you to your true north. Do not stifle it. Allow yourself to find full expression.
Until we speak again, I am your host Mitchell Odhiambo. Welcome to a man’s world. To get a female perspective on this, please read Mercy’s post HERE
