Would you be brave enough to be the face of change, for an entire empire built before you?
Not a small piece of change, but the actual face of it, done in such a manner that you are either going to 'fail' completely until you seemingly dust yourself off, and start again, or skyrocket into the stratosphere and live dreams beyond any you can imagine. Pressure....ya think. Risk...yea but we know I love that. There's something about being in this type of position that dwarfs you in size. Your ego is immediately checked and the magnitude of what is in front of you becomes clear.
I remember being in Japan for the first time, taking the Shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo to Niigata. There is a portion of the trip that is seemingly underground for awhile, and then all of a sudden the area opens up and you are surrounded by snowcapped mountains that take your breath away in size, and sheer surprise. That, is how I feel in regards to the opportunites presenting themselves, in size and in capacity for change in some previously built empires. It's not just about me finding my nook, it's about me elevating the entire mountain off the foundation that has already been laid.
My life is that Shinkansen. One of the fastest trains in the world, I feel as though the speed is quickening. There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.
