An Exercise in Personal Power

“Write about this man who, drop by drop, squeezes the slave’s blood out of himself until he wakes one day to find the blood of a real human being–not a slave’s–coursing through his veins.” -Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Identify your concept of what a crappy job is. Then strive to purify yourself of any fear you feel about ever having to work such a job. Face your fear and interrogate it until it subsides. Strive and persist until you begin to feel the sensation of inner freedom running through your veins.

Now go pursue what you really want from a place of power.

If you want to create the job of your dreams, you might need to conquer the job of your nightmares by realizing that there is no such thing as a job that’s capable of taking away your self-worth and potential.

You can’t build the kind of momentum that will carry you to your desired destination if you’re paralyzed by a fear of all the possible points in-between.
