I read a blog recently that stated the following: "For several decades we have been systematically dismantling guideposts. This leads us to empty suits. When truth becomes whatever we want it to be, when all truth becomes opinion, when all opinions are equal, then the truth is nothing; it is a empty shell. Living on such a wide avenue is a road going nowhere. " It was based from a post in the WSJ by Peggy Noonan.

I looked up the definition of guidepost and here's what I found:
  1. A post with a sign giving directions for travelers, usually placed at a crossroad.
  2. Something that serves as a guide or an example; a guideline.
My Guiding Statement (Mission statement, Purpose Statement...) in life is that I exist to influence and inspire others to become the best versions of themselves possible. This is how I'm put together; how I've been designed.

The goal of this blog is to influence and inspire people to leave meaningful truth in their wake. I certainly hope to grow as a thought-leader, writer and person along the way.

We're all on a journey. Some know where they are going some don't but inevitably we all find ourselves at some point needing direction. Where will we turn? I personally hope that there will be a guidepost for me when I need it.
