By about mid October, the various maze fields open up to the public in this community. The mazes are the result of corn being planted in certain patterns. At harvest, a view from an airplane reveals the theme. One year, one of the mazes was the shape of a bronco rider in a rodeo. No, I did not see it from the air, I saw the aerial photograph in the newspaper. Still, very impressive.
I tend to be claustrophobic. A maze doesn’t affect me that way because I can always look up. An enclosed maze would be a challenge. I am a person who needs to know there is a way out. Mazes really are cool, even more cool are the designers who plan them and those who care for them. There is a way out, just keep turning the corner. This is what comes to mind when I read Scroll 3.
“Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.” Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World, Scroll 3.
My success, my future self, my DMP is just around the corner. I can feel it, I can visualize it clearly with all 5 senses, but I cannot actually see it, I have to forge on, take every corner, follow every bend in the road. What I do not know, is how close it is. What I do know – IT IS!!!
What if it takes me a while? What if I become tired? One thing is certain –
I do not stop when I am tired,
I stop when I am done, when I have arrived at the finish, my future self, my success.
Success is like a maze. With persistence the end of the maze, the clearing, can be found. Trust the process. It is just around the next corner….
I always keep my promises!
