Lessons From the Cockpit: Everyday Wisdom from the Flying Life - Lessons - Hope for Humanity: "There is a person you are meant to be. You know this because you’ve dreamed of it. Perhaps that person is a painter or a photographer. Maybe it’s an entrepreneur or a scientist. But whatever the goal, many of us have the same issue in trying to reach it: we tend to only see the people we are now. When we peer in the mirror it’s too easy to find the faults and imperfections, both inside and out. As much as many of us do not want to admit it, we cling to that person inside whom we don’t want to be.
Why do we do this? Maybe it’s because that person is all we know and it’s so difficult to imagine the higher-self beyond."
