A full-throttle, open run can only go one direction. There is always the choice not to run, but some of us can’t handle sitting idle for too long. So we either run towards something, or run away.
Running away has to do with fear. We are either trying to escape a situation or move ourselves as far away as possible. Sometimes that’s necessary, but more often it’s out of reluctance to take a risk.
Instead we can choose to run towards something. To strive for something. People may yell that “we’ll never make it,” some will try to dissuade you from ever taking the first step. But you have counted the cost, you have readied yourself, and you are determined to reach the goal.
So start running.
