When a plane flies to its destination which is thousands of miles away, at some point the pilot reaches a spot in the journey when there would not be enough fuel left to turn around and go back to the original place. The only way out is forward or to some other in between target. It's pretty scary, isn't it?
Likewise, if we embark on a mission to pursue our calling in life, we may come to realize that there is no coming back to our old way of living. Even if we fail to fulfill our calling and try to live like nothing happened, we will always carry this sense of unrealized potential with us. This feeling may become so difficult to bear that after many years of trials and errors we will resolve to do the thing we were put on this earth for, however scary it might be.
In fact, the scarier it feels, the more we are drawn to it and the more we can be sure that it's our true calling and not some shiny object which our inner dragons send to distract us.
