This post is not really a follow up on the previous post, rather I was thinking about something and I wanted to throw it out there to see what others might think.
I bet many of you are familiar with this quote, “What would you do if you knew you would not fail?”
I recall reading that quote for the first time many years ago. After reading it and mulling it over in my mind, I found I could not answer that question. Heck, I could not even plan an answer or guesstimate or any other amates one can think of.
It felt like such a big question. One that carried so much weight to it. I felt as though I were failing just by not having the answer to the question. Talk about not even getting out of the starting gate on that one.
Dear reader, when you read that quote, does it spark enthusiasm and drive towards a new goal, or idea? Or are you like me, finding yourself tripping over the letters before you even make sense of the question?
Or have any of you used that question to propel yourself forward into fresh adventures throughout your life? Please share if you have.
Perhaps there are some of us who find they are blocked before we even plan an action, and there are others who take the leap of faith and run with it.
This dear readers will require further exploration, don’t you think?
I have been taking a class for the past 9 weeks now, and at the start of each class we all begin by speaking about our blockers or what has been blocking us as we learn.
It’s weird because I had never before been asked what my blockers were.
Dear readers have you ever thought, what is blocking you?
And by blocking it can be something simple as:
What is blocking your path?
Or it could be, what is blocking you from achieving your goals?
Or what is blocking your happiness?
This is a topic we will revisit often and one we will (the we being all of us on this journey together) lay out some plans to deconstruct our blockers. I believe we can do just that. Deconstruct and then use the tools we have (or the tools we will begin acquiring in this process) to build a path through any blockers which might pop up on our journey.
And to do just that, we need to record our thoughts. This can be done using your computer or recording your thoughts in any manner that moves you. Just get them out into the open. Let them see the light of day. Because until you see these blockers for what they are, you cannot create a path through them.
Remember dear readers, it’s a journey not a destination.

“Autumn is the hardest season The leaves are all falling And they’re falling like they’re falling in love with the ground And the trees are naked and lonely I keep trying to tell them New leaves will come around in the spring But you can’t tell trees those things They’re like me they just stand there And don’t listen”
