To get to where you ought to be, is by being bold enough to believe you're already there.
...When you know what you want, but your grandma's words of "But what are people going to think..." echo in your mind...
...When you know what you need to do, but the gremlins of past mistakes, failures and rejections resurface.
...When you feel good about what you're about to do next, but only "need" to wait for your partner's approval.
Of course there will be resistance. Of course there will be fear. And doubt. And aching wounds.
And you know what - fortune has many names, said Victor Hugo.
For the weak, it's unattainable.
For the fearful, it's unknown.
For the bold, it's ideal.
So what if you failed in the past - your future has nothing to do with it.
So what if they rejected you - you're the one supposed to get it, not them.
So what if nobody in your family has done it - you're the rule-breaker and the one shattering limits.
So what if there are no blueprints, checklists or templates - you're the trailblazer.
If you can see it with your heart, if you can feel it in your soul, GO FOR IT.
And simply choose that your mind (that YOU control anyway), has no power over you, not even by creating illusions of limitations to stop you from answering your calling, fulfilling your purpose.
Because it's all just that - an illusion than dissolves the moment you walk right through it...unveiling even grander view with even greater clarity.
