There are people in this world who are doing what they want. They are living the life they want. Traveling where they want. And loving it! They have obligations, hardtimes, brokenhearts, and scars all down their backs from all the times they were stabbed. But yet they find a way to make it happen. It’s a determination and dedication to their goals that take them above all the drama and into the life of their dreams.
When people ask “Do you have what it takes [to live the life of your dream]?” they are never asking about your talent. There are tons of untalented people who make it big. What they are really asking is if you can overlook the inevitable bullshit, the low blows, the hard times, the times you feel completely invisible, all the times you were looked over when you knew you had it—and still continue to move forward.
There are a lot of people in this world who are doing what they want, living life, and loving it. It’s not an easy place to get until you force yourself to put all the small stuff in perspective.
