There’s this thing about your brain.
When you give your brain a destination — a goal, a dream — it has a way of unconsciously guiding you to where you want to go.
But … there’s a catch.
The destination itself isn’t enough.
You don’t have to know how you’ll get there.
Nor do you have to know when you’ll get there.
You just have to believe you will.
Because if deep down you feel like it’s impossible, like the odds of being, doing, and having what you want are stacked too high against you, well, your brain doesn’t really see the point of lending a helping hand.
To convince your brain to take you on a daring adventure to wherever it is you want to go, you have to go ALL-IN.
The telltale sign that you don’t truly believe in the possibility of achieving and living your dream — having the career, income, relationships, and lifestyle you desire — is to have a Plan B.
Will Smith once said that “there’s no reason to have a Plan B because it distracts from Plan A.”
In his commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania, Denzel Washington said, “I’ve never understood that concept, having something to fall back on. If I’m going to fall, I don’t want to fall back on anything, except my faith. I want to fall forward.”
It seems like the actors have this thing figured out.
Today on the podcast, another actor, Charlie Day, creator and star of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, shares his inspiring (and pretty hilarious) story of how having the courage to take Plan B completely off the table is what created the opportunity of a lifetime.
