You are being seduced by a system that fools you into obedience. Bullies you into compliance. And shrouds your genius with a thick vale. Why? Because the system needs replaceable parts. It requires identical components that allow the system to effortlessly replace you.
"You take the blue pill -- the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill -- you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."
I fought my internal dialogue and swallowed the red pill. My life evolved, not all at once but gradually from one failure to another. From each no-go, I learned that I wanted something better for my life. An extraordinary life where I added significant value to others.
But breaking from the ordinary is not an easy journey. The system will seduce you to stay through steady paychecks, health insurance, free lunches and Friday summer hours. While that life sounds acceptable ask yourself, "What value have you added to the global community?"
If the answer is none then take the red pill? Swallow it and give yourself permission to investigate your curiosities. Pursue your passions. And most importantly find your purpose; which sits at the intersection of passion and solving a global challenge.
