You’re meant for so much more than this.
Stop working towards other people’s dreams.
Once you acknowledge that you have a passion you intend to pursue, once you start to craft even the smallest glimpse into what a life of freedom and bliss could look like... you are doing yourself and the world a disservice if you don’t pursue it.
It’s a gift to be able to acknowledge an activity or pursuit that lights your soul on fire, and it’s a sign from the universe that this is the path you should pursue. A path that will not only fulfill you, but will give you limitless energy and strength to make a greater and more positive impact on the world.
To those still chained to that paycheck and 9-5 job, I get it. Society has engrained in us this weird standard of “success” that isn’t relevant to most when redefined as freedom. Stability from these situations is a great source, and sometimes you need to feed from this source longer than you have hoped or wanted to... but as long as you’re doing one thing each day to build your dream.. YOU ARE MAKING POSITIVE CHANGE. Even just one thing a day to improve and develop your skill or business, brings you one step closer to that freedom you desire and see.
And to those doubting themselves - I'm starting to realize that in itself is actually selfish. Because when you doubt yourself, you’re holding back your best self from the world. And you have so much to offer that you might not even know yet. And don’t you dare say the “industry is too saturated”. Regardless of what “industry” you envision yourself finding success in. Each new creative soul that develops, has an incredibly unique set of experiences, stories, and vision to offer the world, and once we realize we collaborate for magic, the best forces come together each bringing something incredible to the table.
I can’t wait to watch you grow. I can’t wait to watch you make the impact you’ve always wanted to make. It may seem far off now, but each day, you are making small moves towards your dreams, bettering yourself and the world around you with your passion. I can’t wait to look back a year from now and see and love the life you’ve crafted around yourself. ❤️🔥
