It’s not easy going first.
You have to see what other people don’t see.
You have to believe that you’ll get where you’re going even though there’s no path paved out in front of you.
No light shining the way save for the light of your internal vision guiding you along.
And you have to believe twice as hard as the people who are standing behind you.
Going first is scary and lonely and full of missteps.
However, the rewards can be satisfying not only because you get to prove what you’ve believed all along, but also because you get to light the way for others.
