Keep Paddling

A single duck traveled nearly 80,000 miles in its life. At 60 miles per hour, it would take you 1333 hours and change to go that far. That is 55 days on the road. One and a half months.

That says something about wanting to get where you are going. You can’t do it all at once. The destination doesn’t come to you. The distance shrinks, though. The space between you and that place gets smaller with every wing flap.

Keep paddling those duck feet in the water, and keep swimming upstream. Don’t quit. Fight through the frustration, the rage, the doubt, the despair. Push on toward that thing, that dream.

If a duck can travel the circumference of Earth four times over, you can do what you imagine. Just don’t stop. Don’t lose sight of your goal, and keep paddling. You can do this!
