Sometimes we might be closer to our destination than we think. It might just take one simple extra step to make it there or one wrong assumption to hold us back from getting to the place we are heading to.
For example: This waterfall is hidden behind a small mountain and the path to it is covered by the ocean for most of the day. All we had to do was wait for the tide to go down in order to clear the path to it. However, there were many people who assumed that the waterfall was no longer there and walked away.
In some cases although the path is not obvious, it is still there.
