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!
