Journey vs. Career

There’s a big difference between a journey and a career. It’s the difference between getting in the ocean on a speedboat or a sailboat on a slightly windy day. A career is more of a straight line, while in a journey there are no straight lines. On a journey, you go through a series of adjustments with ups and downs.

With a journey, you are making a life choice. Usually, a journey takes up everything you have, every bit of your existence to realize your success. This can be seen through doctors, lawyers, and professional athletes.

Deciding between a journey and career is an important decision to make. When you make a life choice, you have to be up for the risk and you have to have the mental stamina. Do you want work on your craft everyday? Compete? Improve?

That’s not to take away from a career choice, because there is a commitment there as well, but you have to decide what kind of life you want.

For example, if you are a D1 basketball player or varsity athlete, it is likely you made a life choice. Only a few athletes become professionals and the decision limits flexibility and time you have available to yourself in high school or college. You have to practice everyday, watch how you eat, and work out daily. 

On the other side of the spectrum, a career choice allows more flexibility with your day-to-day time. Maybe you sleep through class one day or you take the driving a bus route. You may not need to get better, just more consistent. There isn’t much pressure to getting to the next level. A career choice is valuable, just limited. 

Remember, there’s no shot clock when you pick the journey as a life choice.

Either choice will lead to something good if you make the commitment.

  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
