Knowing the path is not same as walking the path

One of my favourite quotes is: ‘Knowing the path is not the same as walking the path.’ I heard it a while ago, the character of Morpheus says it to Neo in the movie “Matrix”.

Since then, I have reminded myself of it numerous times: when I knew what was good for me but still did as others wanted; when I bravely chose the road less traveled after quitting my job to find my passion; and nowadays as I listen to my clients.

Quite often, I hear from my clients that they know what to do and even how to do it but somehow, they cannot get themselves to actually do it.

And they ask me:’How?’

I do not give the answers as only they can find those out for themselves. It is a different path for each client. They sense the answer, however it is hidden in a place they discover once their fears, doubts and hesitations are put aside.

Whatever the answers are, the path is to be taken gently, patiently, with care, dedication and discipline. I am there to remind them of that and support them on their journey.

Just as I remind myself frequently.
