What are you willing to risk?

Last night, I got caught up again with the never ending conflict of me building my dreams versus me doing responsibilities for my family (doing work). In my heart, I know that part of me screws up my work because I don’t want to do that anymore. But I can’t stop. If I do, then where will I get money to pay bills? My dream is still in progress. I don’t know exactly what I wanted to do but most probably it is related to music. Song writing, performing, I guess. Main conflict would be I can’t earn money right away if I just perform my compositions. That takes hell a lot of time just to sell myself out to the music industry.

The question hit me. I have no answer yet. But I was wondering if I ask the you the same thing, what would your answer be?

What are you willing to risk in order for your dreams to come true?

Is it your job? Is it time? Is it your relationships around you? Is it the money? Is it your health that you are willing to sacrifice?

  1. I wouldn’t risk my family or my relationships and I try to look after my health as writing (thousands of words) is a fairly static occupation. However, sometimes I wonder about ‘sanity’ – then don’t we all? Money is essential to live though 🙂

  2. I believe each of us needs to find the answer to that type of question within ourselves because what is right for one person might be the worst thing possible for someone else.
    Therefore, I believe we each need to look deep inside ourselves and objectively pay attention to what feels right, then take a leap of faith and do it.
    Sorry for not having an easy answer.
