The Longcut…

…is like scaling Mt Everest. But it’s the road you must take

You won’t take it though. Few do. As it shows you exactly what it is

You cannot see the end…
It’s incredibly perilous…
It’s not ‘sexy’…

And it’s a hell of a fucking trek 

The beginning is worse than barren. Imagine standing at the bottom of Mt Everest and staring up the it’s grandest of heights…

It’s scary. And you have no idea how to scale it, or if it’s even possible

But the thing you don’t see…
The thing they don’t tell you…
Is that the road less taken is the one to walk

And the longcut may be incredibly demanding at the beginning… but it gets unimaginably easier as you progress

If you focus on doing the work…
About making the sacrifices…
And staying true to yourself and the reason you began

You’ll find you arrive quicker than you expected. As you’ll enjoy the process and the journey more than you could have ever imagined

Not to mention the majestic view from the top of the mountain

And all the while – the others who took the shortcut… those who took the easy route…

They’re still lost in the valley down below. With no ray of hope. And they’re looking up at you
