Have you ever experienced one of those moments when everything around you seems to go crazy?
You worked very hard on a project putting in insane hours, stretching yourself to the limit, getting all your proverbial ducks in a row and cannot wait for that magic moment, the tipping point, when it all comes together. And just when you expected everything to fall into place you get complete chaos instead. That is not the moment to start doubting yourself. It is not a good time to pull back.
In fact, that is the moment when you need to renew your commitment to the project, to let your desire to create, learn, and make a mark in the world carry you through. Take a look at how Seth Godin defines success. That is a very large part of it.
Desire to make something happen is an invincible force. Give it space. Let it gain in range.
Life is to be lived fully. Life is an expansion that combines passion with research. Success, very much like love, is connected with a person's ability to tell a story. We all build our lives around stories. Those who can build an open and expansive story will have an open and expansive life. Those who build a limited story, will live a limited life.
