Recently, a friend of mine let me in on some exciting future plans- a mutual decision between her and her husband to change career paths and do something they each love.
And she said that I was to thank for it- that my videos were the inspiration behind their decision.
My initial thought was, “Me? Really? No way!”
My second thought was, “Yay, I’m so happy for them.”
My third thought was, “I must caution them (and everyone for that matter) about the road ahead!”
As you probably know by now, I could talk for days about how rewarding and fulfilling it is to discover your dream and go after it, but I would be doing an injustice if I didn’t share the other side of following a dream…the “dark” side.
It’s not an easy road by any means and requires the “persistence of a pit bull and the resilience of Flubber,” as Martha Beck puts it.
This video is not meant to scare you away from pursuing your dreams, but rather PREPARE you for the terrain ahead.
Because if you aren’t prepared, you’re more apt to giving up than to keep going.
With much love and gratitude,
