“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”

He did also offer me a piece of honest advice that completely changed my paradigm of how I was to get to this “promised land” of success.

“Jon, you’re an ambitious person, I see that clearly. The business sees that clearly. I know you are capable of great things, however, what are those ‘things’ that you want? If you keep drifting through life without a star to follow and guide you, you will end up being taken away by the currents of other people. If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there. It’s time for you to carve your own road. Think about what excites you in life and follow that.”

In that moment, I woke up.

I realized then, and so much of the credit goes to this mentor, that it is foolish to be swept away at the whims of life rather than take up sails and navigate onward following your North Star.
