When you find yourself wanting to make a big change, or wanting to try something new, inevitably there will be those concerned voices from the peanut gallery that say, "What ever will you do? And how? You already have skills for [status quo]. You will have to start over!" 

They might scare you, activate your self-doubt. They may have good points to make about certainty and security. But deep down you have something more powerful than doubt and fear. You have the hunger for something more and the belief that joy is worth the risk. So to the peanut gallery–those cheering, those judging and everyone in between–I say, "I may not know exactly 'what' and I don't know precisely 'how,' but I invite you to watch . . . and to be inspired.
