I was tired of living someone else’s dream and not living mine.
This is something we hear a lot these days, as we celebrate leaders and not followers.
It is very good to acknowledge, yet it is probably even more important to have the following clear:
1. what your dream is;
2. what living your dream means (in terms of sacrifices, things to leave behind, compromises to make, and so on);
3. living someone else’s dream is not a subpar option (the dream might be, but there are plenty out there).
