Your dreams might scare people. Your passion might overwhelm those who have yet to journey into the realm of possibility. Your huge heart, courageous words, and wild life may cause others to gawk and point.

And this is exactly where you want to be.

If onlookers are not saying, “You’re nuts!” then your dreams may need a booster shot.

Those who will try to stop you (are the ones you’d least expect)
