He explains turning pro is a decision you make when you are ready to ditch the drama and the fear that is holding you back from your creation.

Think about life as your creation; you can make it whatever you want it to be if you make the decision. That is turning pro.  By turning pro, he is not talking about your career; although he could be. Turning pro is how you can choose to live your entire life.

As he compares the pro to the amateur, you may recognize some of the characteristics; I did. The amatuer compares herself to others and is afraid of what the others may think; the amatuer hides from her greatness.

He discusses the concept of a shadow career. Your shadow career is close to where your greatness lies, but is not quite all the way there. We’re good at what we do, but we haven’t quite turned pro yet. You know if this resonates with you.  Amateurs often choose shadow careers because our egos want to play it safe.
