Do you want to become a world-famous artist? A New York Times Best Selling Author? The owner of a 5-star Michelin restaurant? A fashion designer who is featured in Paris fashion week? A world-class pianist?
You must understand that what you are reaching for is something that only a small percentage of the population will ever achieve. That there are twenty people thinking about doing what you want to do right now. And that people will consistently tell you that what you want is unrealistic.
You have to decide to do it anyway. You have to leave people’s disparaging comments behind you. And you have to stop comparing yourself to other people. You have to decide that the only person that you can ever truly compete with, is you from yesterday.
That’s how you start, you hold on to that dream. You hold on like it’s the most important thing in the world.
