“The impulse of dreaming was beaten out of me by the experience of life”- crazy thought right? How often do you have a dream and then immediately talk yourself out of it- it’s too insane, people won’t be interested, don’t try to be something you’re not. But you have a choice- you can choose to stay there and stay small and safe, or you have a choice to go after it.
Make the jump. Look crazy. Fail in front of others. Keep going. Don’t let life beat your dreams out of you.
