It seems that I was born with innate attractions to certain things and found myself trying to do them as a child. Some I put off doing because they scared me too much, but eventually the misery of not doing things I dreamed of became too heavy a burden, so I launched myself into them in spite of my fears. I noticed along the way that the things I feared the most were the ones I was most talented at and therefore most equipped by birth to do. Avoidance, jealousy, fear, and feeling like a coward for not doing things are probably good indications of a secret path.
