Six years ago I took a shot in the dark.

I was at one of those intersections of life —where you either make a massive change or the pain of regret eats you alive until you’re 88.

And while I had a vision come to me on a New Year’s Eve:

  • I had no idea on ‘how’.
  • I had no idea on the plan.
  • I had no idea on the steps.

There was no blueprint or 7-step-system to bring it to life.

All I had?

That conviction you get when it’s time to burn the freakin’ boats.

You know that feeling:

It’s the belief that moves mountains, the desire you can’t stop thinking about —the longing for something in every fiber of your being.

But for many people, that’s where it ends.

The ember never becomes a spark, and the spark never becomes the wildfire they could have never imagined.

After making the move into the unknown, into the darkness, into the void:

Today I wake up with the woman of my dreams as my wife, a calling that makes me fly out of bed in the morning —and a level of fulfillment that brings me to my knees on the regular.

I share this with you because along the way:

There were peaks, valleys, omg-what-the-fuck-is-happening-moments, naysayers, overdrafted accounts, endless rejection, countless failures and near misses, questioning…

(Otherwise known as the messy AF part of growth your favorite guru never talks about because it hurts their Live Your Best Life payment plan.)

And maybe you’re in it right now.

Maybe you’re feeling disoriented, emotionally off-kilter and wondering why you can’t get in line with everyone else and want what they want.

You can barely see six inches in front of you and you’re wondering what this is all for.

I want you to know something:

Your authentic desire is the deepest representation of who you are —and to listen to this part of yourself is the highest version of success you can ever attain.

As Joseph Campbell once said:

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Maybe, just maybe, the fact you’re going through this means you’re exactly where you need to be.

And all you can do is put one foot in front of the other.

Otherwise, you’ll never know what could have been.

And it’s the not knowing that kills your spirit.
