To live without ego is not healthy or entirely possible. To strive to keep your ego in check while remaining open is the answer to authenticity. You will stumble. You will fail. The journey isn’t about succeeding, it’s about the effort it takes to get there. It’s about the questions you ask along the way. It’s about the things you learn while on the path. Anyone can find success but if no one can bear to be near you at your zenith what was it all for? Never be contented by the mold that the outside world has created for you. Be the firefighter you imagined you’d be as a child. We don’t have to slide down poles to catch loud red trucks in a hurry to rescue to put out fires. Use your passion to extinguish sparks that put themselves in your path. Not all fire can be fought with a blast. Sometimes a simple knowing look. A pause. A kind word. Sometimes not being the kindling. Stand firmly in your place with an open mind and heart. The world will be yours to mold.
