Everybody knows the dice are loaded. Everybody knows the ship is sinking.
But there is still time.
You’ve got this song, this book, this idea, this passion project inside you that wants to come out into the world and take shape.
The only things in the way are excuses and self-limiting beliefs. They are comforting, because they mean that you don’t have to make any mistakes or slip-ups.
If you hold onto them, you can go on thinking that all those other people who made their mark—or who quietly worked on their practice with determination and discipline—had some inborn talent, ability, or intellect.
They made mistakes, but that didn’t stop them. They persisted.
They made it their mission to show up every day, and work on their craft.
So, forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
It’s now or never.
