Success is on the other side of the splat

Lonnie Mathews (paraphrased) One day a young man asked the Guru which way should I go to success. The Guru pointed in a single direction. The young man said OK, cool and then he went on his way and all of a sudden there was a loud “SPLAT”. The young man was now all bruised up and went back to the Guru to ask him what direction he should go to reach success. The Guru pointing him in the same direction, the young man followed the
direction of the Guru again and there was another loud “SPLAT” and this time the young man was all bruised up and bleeding and frustrated and he asked the Guru again and the Guru pointed him in the same direction. The young man said HOLD UP!, I have gone that way before and each time there was a loud “SPLAT”. The Guru thought for a moment and then said “success is in the direction I sent you, it is just on the other side of the SPLAT.” Are you willing to go beyond the SPLAT? Beyond the pain, beyond the test– (Brian K. Rice: Friends it is time to go beyond the test, beyond the trial, and beyond where you stopped last time. It is time for each of us to go after our own idea of success.)
