"It's easy to become anything you wish… so long as you're willing to forfeit your soul"
This quote from American born Chinese really stood out to me because of what I think it means.
It's saying you can become whatever you want, if your willing to devote your all into your craft or passion. I can relate to this, not because I have sold my soul but because I haven't, figuratively speaking. To explain what I mean I've been able to draw better than most people for as long as I could remember. I could think back to when I was in the 3rd grade, when I would drawing in class. And catch the attention of everyone, they would love my drawings. I would draw and doodle every now and than never really taking my talent serious. I even inspired one of my friends to start drawing, a couple years down the line he's drawing better that me, me who was naturally talented. I was a little envious whenever I saw someone that could draw better than me, I thought people were just as good as they were never understanding that you could improve. I couldn't understand this for a long time, he couldn't draw a straight line when I first met him now he could draw better than me? I was who was naturally talented and he wasn't. It took me years until I finally understood why my friend could draw better than me. He sold his soul, not literally but he would put effort and time into his craft. I on the other hand didn't draw nearly as much as he did. It's not until recently when I started to put time and effort into drawing trying to forfeit my soul metaphorically.
