I had always thought that my brains were the ticket, the legs, the whole hog of the operation, that they would take me wherever I needed/wanted to go with. There was nothing that I needed to do - they would do it all. I was just along for the ride.
I realized today that my brains lack rocket fuel. There is nothing in and of intelligence itself that will TAKE you anywhere. Brilliance is merely a key that opens doors - it is nothing without the feet that bring you to the door, nor will it walk you through the door.
Life's rocket fuel is passion, desire, vision, creativity.
Power on. :)
