“You do realize, don’t you, that there have been others – in lifetimes, millennia, and civilizations past – who have been to some of the same “places” you’ve been to? Yet, they got so scared they lost control, turned away, or flat out quit.
Yep, and they surround you now in the unseen. Your greatest admirers.

If I had to tell you that 97% of every person who tried to start a venture on their own, failed at it and gave up, you wouldn’t believe me. Unfortunately, this statistic is correct. You would be surprised on how many have brilliant and creative ideas, have the know how to get it started but somewhere along the way, they felt overwhelmed with the responsibilities and just gave up on their dreams. They felt they weren’t good enough, or smart enough or anything else to move forward. At the first sign of imminent obstacles, they just gave up. No business will succeed the first time around, unless you create a vaccine for the AIDS virus and introduce it to the world. Not sure how pharmaceutical companies will accept you in their circle, but i would recommend you to go somewhere and hide as they will want to track you down. Either way, you need to put all your energy and belief in everything you do in life. There is no way around it.
As for the path you need to take, it is really up to you. Would you prefer being like the majority of people who just give up quickly and decide to go work for the minority of people who succeeded? The choice is yours to make. Not many are willing to cross the difficult path, or to venture into the unknown. It is a scary path, a very lonely one and many will not join you, however, you can be sure they will be waiting for you on the other side and ask you to share your wealth with them. You have plenty of people like that out there. Just like the ones who give you dangerous advice knowing that you will be the ONLY one that will assume the consequences to their advice. They really have nothing to lose but you do. So stay away from these toxic people and focus on what you believe in. The rest will come easy.
