"I was willing to rethink every assumption I'd ever had to get that life."

Barbara Sher, Live the Life You Love, Part 4

I felt on the verge of a very big discovery. I was so excited that day I called all my startled friends and shouted into the phone, "We can all have what we want and we don't have to change at all, and we don't have to have the right attitude or anything! Isn't that astounding? We've all been sold a bill of goods! I'll get back to you on this!"

Obviously I had my own way of accomplishing hard things. Determined to design a program that would suit me, I sat down and carefully took apart every belief I ever had about what it takes to achieve a dream. So I wasn't perfect. So what? I wanted a life I would love anyway, and I wanted it as soon as possible.

And I was willing to rethink every assumption I'd ever had to get that life.

What I learned changed my course forever.
