I have come to find in my 22 years on this earth that most people are sheep. They crave someone telling them what to do. They want the path of least resistance. They claim to want greatness, but they lie. Greatness would require risk, risk would require stepping away from the herd. Stepping away from the herd insures that the herd will isolate them, tell them it can't be done, tell them that they are stupid for trying. You see the herd not only desires someone to lead them blindly, but they also desire for no one walk their own path, as this would make them feel insecure about themselves. If you want to be part of the herd, if you want to be a sheep, that is fine. But don't claim to have the heart of a wolf, a lion, don't claim to seek greatness when all you really want is someone to tell you what to do. If you really want to be great, then put your balls on the line and go for it. But don't sit amongst the herd and snivel about how this wasn't the life you planned for and how great you wanted to become when all you've done your whole life is take the path of least resistance and follow the herd. You either will take the risk, think for yourself, and go for it, or you will be a sheep. The choice is yours. The path of least resistance always leads to the land of mediocrity. Do not fear failure... FEAR AVERAGE.
