Facing the unknown is uncomfortable.
No one said it would be easy to start your own business, or finish your book idea, or lose weight.
That feeling of not knowing what to do, or how to do it, or what decisions will lead to success is part of the creative process.
Going to school, smart decisions, honing our skills, and asking for wise counsel can set our course (and give us a better chance to succeed), but we’re still the ones who have to figure out how to climb the mountain(s) we are facing.
Even if we have someone guiding us all the way through, the path will be different, because the timing is different, and we’re different and our purpose is different.
This is not a lonely course, because everyone who is pursuing creative work outside the norm has to experience this.
Most people won’t choose this.
They would rather have someone else choose their path for them. Is this a bad thing? Who am I to say.
For me, it comes down to doing things that fulfill me and help others.
Does this thing I want to do light me up with joy and add a spark to my eye?
Is this person I want to be someone whom I would admire?
Am I helping others with my gifts?
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
