So to unfetter your dream is really to say to yourself, “I’ve got all of these things coming at me, all of these things that are going to kind of unsettle and unhinge me but I’m not going to let it. I’m going to protect this dream.” You’re going to do that because this dream is fragile. It’s in its infancy and it needs that time to develop, to grow and to strengthen.
I was speaking to a friend recently, who was feeling burnt out, stressed and exhausted. She had been plugging away at a new project for more than a year. It had its ups and downs but overall, the toll was significant. It was draining the life out of her and she was taking some time to evaluate everything.
