You’re on top of the world. A thriving career, plenty of money, a nice house, and (finally!) a sense of security. But what you really want, most of all … you don’t have.
Maybe, really, deep down … you want to write a book. Or start your own business. Or find true love. Or have a child. Or travel the world. Or switch gears completely, go back to school, and start a radically different career.
You find yourself having the same conversation, on repeat, with your friends.
I really want [insert your deepest desire here], but …
You’re tired of hearing yourself voice the same roadblocks and excuses, over and over again. (Your friends are growing a bit weary, too.)
In the end, it all comes down to this:
Do you have the courage to walk away from the life that you know … into the unknown?
Maybe the answer is, Yes, I do. I just have to.
Maybe the answer is, No, I don’t. It’s just not worth the risk.
Whatever you decide … well, that’s your decision. But at some point, you’ve got to choose and commit to that choice. Otherwise, you’re likely to keep spinning and second-guessing for the rest of your life. (And that’s deeply unfair to yourself. Not to mention: deeply un-fun.)
