Walk Through Walls In 7 Steps

Everyone wants to follow their passion. I want to follow mine. I hope you want to follow yours. But how often have I said to myself one of these excuses: “I can’t right now because” , or “I’m not good enough because…”, or  “I have a foreign accent” and I put myself in a prison that I created and I lock the doors behind me.
