If life were easy and decisions were simple, there would be no thrill at all. But there are always certain points in life where one needs to make a choice. The 'two roads diverged in a yellow wood'. Taking a path less trodden is a very very difficult choice. But making that choice is what makes me respect a person.
It is easy to walk till that point and then decide to go in the road that has been walked over by millions of people and follow the mass. But to stand by your gut feeling and go take that road where no one has dared to take, uninfluenced by facts and history, and to just feel that nothing can go wrong- that takes courage and genuinity.
