It is the dream of many people to be living fulfilling, authentic lives. For those who are not, they need to ask themselves, why not? Many people are following the hopes and aspirations that their parents had for them so the parents can live vicariously through them. Follow your bliss and tell your parents, as my coach Parisha often says, to “get over yourselves.” Don’t let the influence of just one person out of billions have so much power over you.
