Many of us have arrived at this point from various points in life. Whether you were born knowing that this was your calling or you just woke up yesterday to the news, you are here. Honestly the why of it all only matters to the extent that it propels you forward. All else kind of fades. So here we are. All looking for the next great thing that will help us reach our zenith. Reaching that peak will be easier if you follow certain rules. What are they? I'm glad that you asked. Here they are.
Rule #1: Never give up.
Most never achieve because they tossed in the towel. Many things materialize in the path of those that dare to dream. No matter the obstacle just keep going.
Rule #2: Never compete.
Most measure themselves by the metrics set by others. Your skillset, life's path, and creative ability is unique. To judge yourself by others is to box the true self in. This is the race of one, ran by one. No one else can run your race, tell your story, or live your dream.
Rule #3: Never give up.
Wait, are you still here? So am I. I'm here to remind you to never ever give up. Run to the finish line and meet your dreams head on. I promise that it's worth it.
