Focus on where you are right now

One day a young Buddhist on his journey home, came to the banks of a wide river.

Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him, he pondered for hours on just how to cross such a wide barrier.

Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river.

The young Buddhist yells over to the teacher, “Oh wise one, can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river?”

The teacher ponders for a moment looks up and down the river and yells back, “My son, you are on the other side.”

Maybe you’re always looking around, always looking for greener pastures, better business ideas, better partners, a better life path.

But maybe you’re already on the right path.

Instead of looking around, focus on where you are.
