Driven Off Course?

Recently, I met a twenty-nine-year-old at an entrepreneur’s conference who was tormented and embarrassed by his lack of success. He was a singer and a musician working in a job he didn’t like, chasing a break that had not come, thinking his time had run out.

Volunteering on a crisis line, I heard this same story from countless twenty-somethings, seriously depressed, comparing themselves to friends or idols who had already realized their dreams or made seven-digit salaries while they languished.

Being passionately driven to realize our dream is a good thing, unless we drive ourselves into the ditch by…

  • forgetting that greatness has no time limit
  • thinking our story must be like someone else’s story
  • sacrificing what really matters for the fame and fortune that doesn’t
