Sometimes chasing your dreams can be terrifying.  That’s why it’s good to surround yourself with people who believe in (or threaten) you.  Imagine answering your phone and hearing, “Hi this is Luke and I was wondering if you’d like to buy some fertilizer?”

Luke Bryan tells Billboard magazine that his dad threatened to fire him from the family fertilizer business if he didn’t pursue his musical dreams in Nashville. “He said, ‘Our fertilizer company will always be here, but you’ll never get your youth again. You’ll never have this time in your life where you don’t have a wife and kids, and chasing your dreams is not that complicated right now.’ Once I got his blessing, it made the decision easier.”
