I was chatting with a friend in Northern California last week and he is contemplating going back to school. He has taken the first step, apply and get into the program of his choice. Yet he is torn. Some of his friends and family members are excited, encouraging, and cheering him on. Yet there is a small but very vocal group that is trying to get him to forget about school and just do what he has been doing for 25 years.
Ultimately, my friend will need to listen to his own voice. After all, he is not putting anyone in financial distress and this is his dream. My question to him was: Are you brave enough to listen to your own voice and move toward what you have wanted for more than ten years?
It’s a great question for each of us to ask of ourselves – go after the dream or not?
Have a pleasant weekend,
