The Quote


Key Food for Thoughts (KFT)


You may say “yet another quote” and I will reply “yes, but-ummm”. This quote is an original and I would like to share its short story so you will have its context. But feel free to jump straight down the page.

Equipped for hiking, I am making my way towards the 8-figure pools, south of Sydney. After some time walking, I get closer to this beautiful spot. It is located between the Pacific Ocean and the cliffs of the Royal National Park.

It is the second time that I am visiting this place and yet again, I invite myself into a special experience.

The path is getting narrow and rocky. It can become hazardous due to the waves splashing against and over the rocks forming the only access way. I start accelerating my pace. My senses and my breath become one with my beating heart, in unison. I start jumping from rock to rock. I lower my centre of gravity to gain balance when landing. And strength to propulse myself back up to the next block. My brain as the bandmaster, and my body as a whole are synchronising and leading those movements.

After 30 or 60 seconds, I stop, take a deeper breath in from the ocean breeze, steadily breath out.
Woh, it feels amazing. I feel alive.
Anyway, after this, I take out my phone and scribble some notes about this quote. 3 months later, I stumble upon my notes and have the intuition that it is time to share this around:

The Quote

“There are no such things as roadblocks. Only rocks you can step on to propel yourself to the next block.”

Your Key Food for Thoughts (KFT)

  • Any blocks in life are an opportunity to learn and grow from them
  • The way through to your life vision starts with a jump from the rock in front of you to the next
  • Landing onto one boulder at a time, at your pace, create progress
