Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
For me, this quote from one of the great writers of the 19th century is the essence of what it means to be an achiever and an entrepreneur. Achievers typically do not follow the well worn path of others, rather they decide where they want to go and they create their own path. Blaze your own path intelligently, but without fear. If you feel yourself slipping into follower mode, resist the temptation! How can you chart your own course if you’re not leading the way?
