Have you ever been told to be careful what you wish for? That person is often projecting her fear onto you. “How dare you reach for such lofty heights?” translates to, “I’m too scared to do what you’re doing.”
A former student athlete just moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music industry, but she doesn’t have a job in music yet. Her parents could have told her, “Be careful what you wish for,” but instead I assume they told her, “Wish away.”
No, you shouldn’t be reckless. You shouldn’t leave a high-paying job to open a yoga studio just because you took a weekend certification class.
But yes, you should wish, because most of us, most of the time, don’t wish for enough.
