Game Of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage has a powerful message on life and dreams.
In his 20’s he had a regular office job and dreamed of being an actor. But like many of us, logic stepped in and said that acting is not a reliable job. So he worked at his 9-5 job and dreamed of the day that he would be an actor.
Then at age 29, he made a decision. He decided to go after what he wanted instead just dreaming about it.
The message I get from his story is that it is ok to go after what we want. Is it scary? Of course. Does it bring a large amount of uncertainty to our lives? Yes.
But at the same time, living our authentic lives and doing what we want to do instead of doing what we need to do is sometimes the only way to live.
