Life is one big unexplored expanse of potential.
We are all born again day after day, thousands of times over a lifetime. Like walking through foreign lands without a map, none of us really knows where we’re going to end up. We only know that some paths seem more likely to end up in a desirable situation than others.
Now let me ask you this.
If I knew I had a map to a more desirable destination, would you want to see it?
Even if I let you see it, would you decide it was better to follow my map instead of your own? I certainly don’t know my map is better than your map. I can’t see the future. Maybe your parents told you about a different route. Maybe you’re lost. But who knows which route is best?
Nobody knows for sure. Now here’s my real question:
If you knew that I could convince you to abandon your route and take mine instead, would you be okay with that?
Imagine a box in front of you. If you have enough imagination, anything you want can be inside of this box. And it’s completely up to you — all the power is yours once you open it. Except, it’s locked. The contents are stuck in your head until you have the key. And I know where you can find it.
Now do you want to see that map?
