Taking the leap, that step into the unknown, leaving the security of predictability, is difficult to do. That first step, that very first decision, is often the thing that holds so many people back. Because to do it, you need to step over and through your fears and self-limiting beliefs.
But taking that leap to follow his heart is exactly what my guest today, Tobias, did.
Tobias tells stories about growing up on the Sunshine Coast hinterland, how during his teenage years he was lost due to the death of his mother, and how music saved him through the dark periods in his life.
And it would be that music that Tobias takes the leap for, or “taking the drop” as Tobias puts it.
You see, when a close friend passed away Tobias saw how fragile life is, and how short it can be. He asked himself the tough question, “What do you really want?”
To play music and be a travelling musician was what his heart answered. So Tobias packed up his design and architect career to follow his heart into music.
Tobias and I chat about learning to push through fear and self-doubt, learning from mistakes, and learning from life.
Tobias also talks about taking risks, and that if you are going to take a risk then you should, “Take a risk on being alive.”
I love learning about how people are living their life deliberately and to their own beat. This is definitely one of those beautiful stories.
I hope you enjoy x
