Almost all of us can look back and point to a defining moment in our lives when we were pressed to choose between two life paths: one that we know deep down was right for us, and another that everyone else thought we should pursue. If you’ve experienced one such moment, think back to it now. Consider both options just as you had once upon a time. Notice in your body how each one makes you feel. For me, my moment was six years ago when I had to decide which college to attend. Even to this day I vividly recall how thoughts of the prestigious university my parents wanted me to pursue evoked within me a sense of dread. In contrast, the conception I had for my own life path filled me with a sense of excitement, passion, and drive.
