Signs, signs, everywhere signs...

No more of that sittin' in a slump
No more of that coulda-woulda-shoulda junk
No more of that waiting for the inspiration, innovation
It's time to expand, power from within, you're takin' over this dominion
Green light, now begin

And then...

You can profit from your current plan. You deserve to do well and the sky says there is no real reason why you can’t. The sky though, is not the only voice contributing to the conversation. A voice in you is not so sure of success. You doubt your opportunity. If you continue to do this, the opportunity will vanish completely. Remember; it is one thing to look a gift horse in the mouth and another to test each tooth for strength by whacking it with a sledgehammer. Do that and no horse will ever be good enough to accept! Now put away your fear and follow your faith.

Okay, yeah, so maybe it's hokey superstitious bullshit... but it's giving me encouragement that this is the right direction. It's keeping me from doubting myself.

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
...
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

- Eminem: Lose Yourself

This is my moment.
