When we think about future goals, are we realistic? Do we just want fame, or do we want to project our voice? And if we want to project our voice, why? Is it because we want to feel validation? When you write from a place of seeking validation, you can’t use the expensive words you have because all of your motivations are fear-based. When you are afraid, you are mentally blocking yourself from using your own experiences to reach into the lives of others.
