Lie no. 1. You should fit in and be normal like everyone else. You know the story, white picket fence and two and a half kids, 9-5 job, etc.
REALITY — Do what YOU want to do with your life, be who YOU want to be and live under a bridge if it makes you happy!
Lie no. 2. Following your dreams will not earn you enough money to support yourself or your family.
REALITY — It takes time to build the foundations of your dream life — Rome wasn’t built in a day — but taking baby steps towards your vision will see you reaping the rewards for the rest of your life. Just remember, when you do what you love, you will never work another day in your life (according to Confucius and I happen to agree).
This world would be a happier, brighter, more peaceful place if we all plucked up the courage to flaunt our deepest, inner-most creative expression. LIve your Truth!
