What will people say?
When they see you pursuing a passion project
When you already have a job?
When they see you writing down your thoughts
And sharing them?
What if you are terrible and people see it and laugh at you?
What will people say if you suddenly start living within your means
And were honest about what you can afford?
What will people think if you
When they see you sign up for a leadership program
When you don’t even have a title?
When they see you working a a menial job
When you have a degree.
Who are these “people” –
Who carry so much clout
Even in their absence?
Absence from your inner circle
Absent from your target audience
Absent from your journey and ultimately
They should be absent from the list of people
Who have jurisdiction in your life.
