Do you remember when you were a little kid and your parents told you that you could be anything you wanted to be? Then what happened? You grew up, and got a job just like everyone else. You had children just like everyone else. Then you told your children that they could be anything they wanted to be.
Where does this cycle stop? It stops with you.
I’m a huge fan of education, but nowadays you don’t need a writing degree to write a book. The old traditional way of doing things is gone and there are nothing but resources available – most of the time for free – to reach your goals.
In fact, most of the time it has to do with sweat equity more than anything else. I fear that the course, certification or hoop that you think you have to jump through is there because you put it there yourself. Perhaps it lends itself to some self-validation, or more often than not, it’s because you’re stalling.
So if 50 Cent can transform himself from street thug to rapper to business owner and philanthropist – you can too. Stop making excuses, putting up roadblocks and self-sabotaging your dreams. Get. It. Done.
