An Undestined Traveler

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. — Lao Tzu

Traveling is an integral part of each and every individual. We start the journey at the time of our birth and it continues until we “rest”. We generally don’t follow any fixed path in our early days. We break rules and construct our own way. Challenges are accepted without any fear of defeat. As we grow older, we are stuck to a specific path and are even afraid to wander around. Life becomes monotonous and challenges are overlooked or neglected. We cover ourselves in the skin of others just to please people around us. Fear starts to creep in.

Exploration is a necessity whether it is about exploring new ideas/opportunities or exploring new places. A stringent mindset leaves us nowhere. Show enough courage to travel the unknown territories. You never know what lies ahead. A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson sums it up beautifully—

“Do not follow where the path may lead . Go instead where there is no path and leave the trail.”
