What happens if you don’t take action? There are many instances throughout history and current life that are a prime example of this. Look into the eyes of some of the powerful people that you meet: some will be beaming with passion, while many will look dead inside; their actions, emotions, and responses are robotic in nature. The latter are the ones who are not doing what they genuinely wished to do in life. They may be powerful, but, inside, they are brittle. See the case of J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972: the man had ultimate control over presidents, high-ranking business officials, and any citizen in the United States, but he lived with his mother until the age of 43, led an order-controlled life, never wedded, and was also known to be a repressed homosexual. Several rumours were said behind closed doors about him dressing as a ballerina and spending awkward moments with children while doing so. Many might see this as a fair trade off (everyone deserves their own opinion,) but there are certainly numerous more humans suffering from the same staleness in their life with lesser positions. If you do not act, you may very well be ‘successful,’ but your creativity and passion may be suppressed in the process.
