• ekspləˈrāSH(ə)n/
    1. The action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it.

I love the word – exploration, it’s definition and all it represents…

  • First, one has to take take action.
  • Second, there is the requirement of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area.
  • Third, there is a predetermined objective; I’m doing this in an effort “to learn about it.”

Hmm, is success really that simple? Well, kind of, but not really.

I’ve added the word “willfully”, as it serves to spell the difference of what’s truly needed.

The dictionary defines “willful” as:

“Having or showing a stubborn and determined intention to do as one wants, regardless of the consequences or effects.”

“Refusing to change your ideas or opinions or to stop doing something.”

“An action, done deliberately.”

“The condition of being determined to do what you want; not caring about what other people want.”

Strong words? Indeed. And in some people’s eyes – negative.

“Success, a condition brought on as the result of one’s willful desire to explore.”

I think so.

As always, I look forward to your thoughts…
