Have you ever heard the expression: Why did the chicken cross the road? I am pretty sure you have. I was reading the book The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield, co-author of the the successful book series “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. On page 261 of that book there is the picture below. When I saw this picture, it hit me: The chicken crossed the road because he was excited about what was on the other side of the road. Crossing the road for a chicken is a daring challenge, and unless the chicken is really fired up about the adventure and the end result, it would never dare taking its chances.
You probably have some objectives that are on the other side of the road and maybe you have not yet mustered enough courage to cross the road. If what is on the other side of the road is worth risking your life for, just like the chicken did, you don’t have the luxury of not taking your chances. The chicken that has the courage to accept to die crossing the road on the way to the other side will usually not die. Most motorists will stop if they see a chicken walking tall and proud.
The chicken crossing the road is indeed a good picture of what we have to do to be able to live the better future, the better life we deserve. You are not a chicken. Of course not, chicken cannot read. What is on the other side of the road for you? Are you willing to risk getting hit by a car or a truck because you are determined to make it to the other side?
Why do you think the chicken cross the road?
