Walk That Line.
For every dream, there is a doubt. Obviously there will always be naysayers and skeptics. But I’m talking about your inside circle. The closest people to you and your goals. There will always be at least some small shred of doubt.
Yes. This is all very apparent and clear. Throughout time, this concept has been beaten to death. But today I want to highlight the honest truth. Your dream should be backed by your mentality. And your mentality, to succeed, needs to be borderline insane. Yes, walk that line of insanity.
· In a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction
· Extremely foolish or irrational
There is a gap between normal and new conceptualizations. To take this leap, sometimes, must be completely faith based; faith in your dream that may or may not even be realistic. This is how “amazing” is accomplished.
This is the separation. From you to them. Your practice, your craft, your collection is only as real as your belief. A boat eventually sinks if water finds its way in through holes. You are the boat. Needless to say, the craft HAS to be airtight. The moment water creeps in, the vessel has been breached.
For some time, a dreamer goes through a cyclical tailwind of conscious thoughts. Emotional wear. Perhaps friends and family try to “talk you down”. It almost seems as if the world has deemed you “thumbs down”. The moment you decide you’re ok with this…you’ve begun to walk that line.
It’s lonely. It’s tough. And it’s worthwhile.
You’ve now journeyed to where they could not. And all along the way, you’ve created your own path (process). One way or another, creating your own “you” is more valuable than any norm.
Can you bring yourself to be categorized as border-line insane? Walk that line, One Day at a Time.
