Working for myself is probably the most rewarding and yet the scariest thing I've ever done. Whenever I catch myself thinking I'm crazy for choosing this path, I center myself again by reading the words of Joseph Campbell that I found by accident years ago:
“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.”
― Joseph Campbell (The Power of Myth)
It is the first and often the only thing I will share with others that I come across, who I presume to be on a similar path of dreaming big and working to realize those dreams. I suspect this is as close to a religion as I am going to get, for I often think of words such as faith, truth, gospel and heaven... and sometimes, hell. :)
