We are often told not to do what we are passionate about—it’s too risky, too hard, you are dreaming, be it for life, business or our own financial goals.
But we are encouraged to be more practical, to take the safe road. Just because it's the 'safe road', the known way, does not guarantee success either. We can fail at anything we do I believe that this kind of advice is often based on fear, or ignorance, though some may call it concern. So why not take the other option? The one that we're passionate about? At least then if we fail it was in trying something that we loved. So be sure you're still listening to that internal compass, the quiet inner voice and discover what makes you fully alive, and then do the bold thing! The brave thing! Step out and go for it!

DETERMINATION: Persevere! No matter what set back life throws at you or what mistakes you make get back up. Success is always based on how well and quick you recover from failures along the way. Stick with your plan. If you need to learn more or study more, do it! Don’t dwell on any negative comments from other people or what they are saying, or even your own negative thoughts.
Be optimistic, hopeful, confident and focused. Live from your highest idea, your "Best Self". Give yourself a chance. When you complete a task of any size or importance you get a surge of energy.
