You can chase money,
only to see how quickly the high is gone.
You can climb ladders,
only to realize the importance of the wall.
Instead chase challenges and seek out facilitators and mentors who can help you scale and break walls.
There was a kitten and there was a mouse.
Every evening the kitten would cry at the mouse. “Come out and play”
But the mouse would not come to play.
Yet, every night the kitten cried for it to come play.
After a long time, the mouse finally decided to come out to play – and the kitten, now a cat, killed it.
That is the reality of the cat – and the fate of the mouse
For someone, somewhere, your fiction may be their reality.
