The only way to know a stop sign exists is to look at it – to know that the line in which you need to stop at is attached to a social and legal system.
This of course, is for the safety of others and yourself – it’s a very important thing to abide by stop signs when driving.
What about theoretical ‘stop’ signs? The type of stop sign that doesn’t involve driving.
The type of stop sign that stops you from thinking differently or pursuing your dreams?
These stop signs can only occur if you decide to look at them – if you decide that the red octagon and the white line on the asphalt will define your existence (theoretically)…or another way to put it – something aside from yourself will dictate what you do in life.
Each time you stop at a literal stop sign, take a quick moment to think about the things stopping you from what you want to do.
Let each stop sign be an indicator to go do what you want – to go without too much deliberation and go for what you believe to be most important in your life.
There is no stopping you.
