The truth is most people go to their grave living a life far below their potential. With their wishes and dreams buried deep inside of them, almost extinguished from decades of being ignored.
They cover the fire that was once burning inside them with the bullshit the world wants to sell us. Cheap thrills, addicting apps, and substance-less products.
We become convinced that the job is more important than our dreams and that security is more necessary to us than the very adventures that make us feel alive.
But they got it all wrong.
The truth is, what we need more than anything is to live a life aligned with who we are.
If that's painting then go paint.
If that’s exploring then go explore.
If it’s building companies, traveling, love, or being a partner, then go do that.
It doesn't matter what they are, just please just don't ignore your dreams.
Play with them, explore them, let them burn inside you.
No, you may not be able to make a "career" out of them. You might not be able to even make a penny from them, but please, don't ignore them all together.
Wake up insanely early, moonlight, or sneak some time in between your kid's soccer game.
We don't care what you do, but please, don't give up on them all together.
And oh, the irony....
