It's your life. You have a destination a lifetime away, it will most likely be a challenging journey. If your aspirations are beyond the status quo, your journey will be an uphill battle. An uphill battle does not equal a miserable existence until the peak of the mountain is reached. Enjoying the journey, relishing in the good fight for a life well spent is worth your effort. I’m not advocating a rejection of family, friends or spirit, these are precisely what should be at the heart of your journey.
Your journey must incorporate passionate ownership if you are to endure it and come out on the other side with satisfaction. You must include healthy doses of support from mentors, family, and friends. Be mindful - there will be no shortage of naysayers on your path. Roadblocks will come from individuals you love, individuals that don’t understand you, individuals that are trying to hold you back so they don’t feel left behind. Have the courage to live your cause. The only thing that can hold you back is you.
Own your life, own your passion, stop at nothing to feel alive. Pave a path to your individual sunset. Getting started is all that matters. You don’t need to know all the details or how everything will work out. But you must get started. You must plow forward, always. You can do it, you got this. No exceptions, no excuses, no regrets. Overcome the ape.
