About Showing Trajectory

Showing Trajectory is an initiative to highlight the success of others and the journey they are taking to reach their goals. It was created upon the principle that there is no straight path towards success. We recognize that success can be measured in an infinite amount of ways and that there will always be obstacles or failures one must overcome. We use our platform to share real stories and to incite real inspiration.




Showing Trajectory is dedicated to sharing and embracing individuals journeys on their path towards success. We believe passionately in the power of real stories to teach, motivate, and inspire others.  Through Showing Trajectory, we’re building a platform and a community of originality and incentive.
