Why The Road Less Travelled is Your Ticket to Bliss

Why the Road less traveled is your ticket to bliss

There is a constant temptation to follow the crowd. It is easy to follow a path that is already created. Following a road less traveled can be scary which is why it is no surprise that it isn’t the best option for everyone.

I grew up in a society that believed that following the road less traveled was bad idea. Parents had a road map for their kids and you were a rebel if you thought otherwise. 

Despite the criticism and the advise from loved ones to follow a path that was wide and easy, I stood my ground and decided to follow the path that was narrow which was different from the crowd.

This would be a thought process that would help me to make a difference. This is what led me to path of blogging about Personal development.

Blogging was picking up speed in Nigeria. The success of Linda Ikeji, Bella Naija and a host of other pro bloggers had spurred every Nigerian blogger to start a blog .

However, most bloggers felt that they way to succeed was to focus on topics that were popular among Nigerians. Niche blogging was not so popular at that time.

Sifting out the noise and the temptation to follow the gurus, I decided to blog about Personal development in a way that would make anyone see himself as a unique personality in the world.

I decided to let anyone know that he can make a difference in the world and does not need to be a celebrity or be on the public radar to be an inspiration.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson

OVER TO YOU

Following a road less traveled might have its ups and downs but you will benefit so much in the long run.

By following this path, I have met awesome friends and joined awesome communities like the Aha Now Community and the PAC community which have made my blogging go to a whole new level.

By following the road less traveled, I realized that all the while, my mind was deceiving me into thinking I could not make a difference. This is the reason why taking action makes the difference.

By following this road, I know I am crafting my life, designing my culture and making a difference.

  1. Really inspiring. What I needed today to kick start what I have been leaving behind. Thanks sir. GOD continue to bless ur life and pen.

  2. Hi Ikechi,

    I think that most of us have been taught to follow the crowd…do not stray away from the tribe. I learned from a wise man years ago to look at what the masses are doing…and then do the opposite of that. I wish people would just think for themselves. I don’t think that we will ever experience true freedom unless we learn to do so.

    1. Hi Rachel

      You are so right. It is a wonder that people would like to follow the crowd. I love your strategy to always do the opposite and it is what I like to do too. Thanks so much for your awesome insight. Take Care
