Stop waiting for permission to live YOUR life the way YOU envision.
I almost denied myself the potential to live the amazing life I’ve been living and experiencing all that I have by almost choosing fear disguised as practicality to live a “traditional life” defined by majority of society.
I say “traditional” life because what I chose to make a career out of and continue to do so is considered “unconventional” and full of risk / against the grain.
I know not all people are fortunate as I was/am to have my family support my decisions but the truth of the matter is, once you’re an adult you don’t need support from anyone other than your own state of being.
Easier said than done but there have been times where I felt isolated and alone, despite all those in my corner supporting me.
I had to seek out others for inspiration, motivation and support for the path I’ve been carving for myself. I call them “virtual mentors”. By doing so, some of those individuals have become my friends and I’ve attracted other friends on a similar path to become apart of my network and support one another no matter how we may feel.
That’s the motive behind me efforts and sharing these posts. To be a “virtual mentor” as I like to call it.
You don’t need anything other than what you already posses: a heart beat, a vision, work ethic, persistence, and purpose.
The rest of the equation and the path will unfold as the desired future vision and action steps to said vision becomes the focus.
I’ve personally been focusing on letting go of control of anything other than my actions and state of being. Having more faith in stepping into the unknown while letting go of the how and focusing as much as possible on the WHY and WHAT.
I’d love to hear from you in regards to your perspective of this post and what’s helped you along your journey.
