“The world makes way for the man who knows where he is going” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
That quote is a great reminder of the importance of having a clear vision of what you plan to achieve here in the world.
But I think there’s something missing. Going is something you do, and being leads to doing and achieving, not the other way round. I believe that in order to really know where you will go in the world – what you are planning to do – you first have to know what you are capable of.
That means you have to truly understand who you are being when you are at your very best. In other words, you have to know your unique Genius.
So I would add the following to Emerson’s quote: The world makes way for you when you know where you are going; and when you know who you are at your very best, the world cannot help but be attracted to you.
Do you truly know yourself at your best?
