desperate to “arrive”

Here’s Seth Alexander talking about self-help materials.

I like self-help materials.

There’s worse ways to spend your time than listening to or reading things that might empower you….that might motivate you.

I know that there are things in the world that make you feel like there’s no way you can make it through.

Why not engage with the things that sponsor optimism?

That being said….how did we ever…or…how did I ever….think that at some point I would “arrive”….that I would get to a point where I was closer to being accomplished or….something close to accomplished?

That’s nuts to suppose that a journey has an end like that….a strong destination that, once reached, means that you don’t have to struggle or worry about things like you did when you were striving to “get there”.

If I stumble for a hundred miles….and arrive at my destination….I still arrive.

If I worry about the consequences of falling down and never start my journey, a hundred miles is a long bridge that I’ll never cross to get to where I want to be.

I want to move forward….and if I fall, I want to get up and keep moving.

I want to move.

Awwwwwww….what the heck?

I just need to fix the power steering on my Mail Jeep.

No self-help book is going to do that for me.

I just need to fix the leak.

I’ll feel better when I can drive my Jeep.

Simple as pie.
