What is the difference between you and one of those legendary historical figures who did have such an impact? You both had many of the same fears. You both were born with talents in some areas and weaknesses in others. The only thing stopping you is fear, and the only thing that will get you past it is courage. What you do with your life isn’t up to your parents, your boss, or your spouse. It’s up to you and you alone.
Yes. I’ve gone through a period in my professional life that I consider to be ‘less’ than what it could have been, but accepted it because of several reasons : new life to take care of and a don’t-rock-the-boat,we’ll-take-care-of-you mentality that I believed. But in the end, even with the best of intentions, it’s me that has to decide what I want.
It’s only now that I have made a change myself in my professionnal life that I realise again that I have the freedom to do what I want and that it is that that I need.
It’s me that does the deciding, not anybody else.
