You arrive at the airline ticket counter with your bags
packed and ready. You pull out a billfold full of cash, and say to the ticket
agent, "I'd like a ticket, please."
"Certainly," says the agent. "Where would you
like to go?"
"Someplace nice. Where I can have a good job, make
plenty of money, drive a new car, live in a big house, and have a lot of
friends," you answer.
"And exactly where would that be?" asks the agent.
"I'm not sure just yet," you reply. "But once
I get going, I should have a better idea."
"I'm sorry," says the agent. "You obviously
have enough money for a ticket to anywhere you wish to travel. However, in
order to issue a ticket, I'll need to know exactly where you intend to go. If
you don't know that, I'll have to ask you to step aside. Next, please."
The person behind you steps up to the counter. "I'd like
a ticket to Paris," he announces.
"Certainly," says the agent. "And how will you
be paying for this?"
"I'm not sure just yet," he answers. "But once
I get going I should be able think of a way."
"I'm sorry," replies the agent. "But I cannot
issue a ticket without your payment. Next, please."
A successful journey has two essential requirements: a clear
destination, and the means to get there. Your goals and dreams are the
destination of your life journey. Your discipline and effort are the means of
travel. Without one, the other is wasted. With both, you can go wherever you
want to be.
