Are you where you want, what you want, who you want to be?
Regress back ten, fifteen, twenty, thirty years. Ask your younger self: "What do I want to be?" Now, return to the present and take a good look at where you are. How does it compare?
Have you "sold out" or “settled”? Are you doing something related to what you want to be doing? Who are you, really?
If you were being true to yourself, what would you be? Not every child grows up wanting to be a middle manager.
Following a dream can be daunting. Otherwise, people wouldn't insert the word, "pipe" before the word "dream" with such recklessness. Some members of society wouldn’t keep others down. Rather, they would allow them to breathe free; doing the writing, painting, singing, dancing, or other such creative work they really want to do.
Society is uncomfortable and sometimes jealous of those who are innovators. We sometimes frown on those who follow their dreams, unless that particular dream involves making money for someone else.
Is that what you're doing? Why?
What would you rather be doing?
Why do so few of us chase our greatest desires?
Is it the fear of risk, or worse still, the fear of failure? Are we that content to let potential pass us by?
Take a walk. Clear your head. THINK.
Why do we lose our imagination when we pass into adulthood?
Why don't more of us make it count?
