You can’t stay

As you start working for change, seeking success in whatever terms you define it, it’s worth asking yourself what you’re willing to give up to get it.

Change – at what cost, and to who?

You’re leaving the village behind, setting off to make your fortune – and it won’t be the same village when you get back, if you come back at all.

‘At what cost’ is a great question.

The flipside, of course, is that it wouldn’t be the same village if you stayed. Each day, day by day: a different you; a different they; a different village.

You can’t stay.

Or rather: you can never be here again. Not with these people, not quite like this.

Stay or go, you’re always leaving this village behind.
