To reach The Goal, we must be ready to make The Change.
And to make The Change, we must admit we want to change.
There is always a vast distance between The Goal and Here. And the person who crosses the finish line will not be the same person that we are now.
That’s just how The Change works.
In our hearts, we know this to be true. And it is terrifying because The Change means Loss.
But we must go through The Change if we want The Goal.
We see bright lights and cash raining down and countless adoring eyes and voices, and we dream of them singing our praises. We see the show but not the work it takes to set the stage.
To make The Change, we must accept that it will not come easy.
To make The Change, we must accept that we will lose ourselves.
To make The Change, we must accept that we will lose it all — and demand to find it on the other side.
