This is the evolution of a dream:
2. The dreamer becomes thrilled with the dream
3. The dreamer then becomes terrified of the dream
4.Then one of two things happen:
a. The terrified dreamer is scared into inaction, the fear becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and the dream is considered unrealistic.
– or –
b. The terrified dreamer leans into the fear and takes action on the dream; the terror is found to be hollow and the dream becomes reality.
The point is that any dream worth pursuing is going to be both thrilling and scary. What if you fail? What if you succeed? What if the end result isn’t what you envisioned? What if it’s exactly as you envisioned?
The funny thing is that the answer to each of those four questions can interchangeably be thrilling or scary.
