by / Nov. 4, 2014 12pm EST

Our city is filled with creative and passionate people, including many who were able to make sharing their talent a full-time career. There are equally as many people who use every minute of their personal time to create art, music, food, and goods that may or may not be seen by the public.

Are you one of those individuals who have a secret passion or dream that you wouldn’t dare share with those around you? If you’ve been searching for that extra bit of inspiration to help you realize your creative goals this beautiful video from Troye Sivan called “Becoming You” may be the push you need. Watch:

In the video, the YouTuber-turned-recording artist declares that “life isn’t about finding yourself. It is about creating yourself,” reminding our inner creator that art is risk, and not to be stifled by the naysayers who may criticize you for doing what they’re too scared to do.

What’s your dream in life? What’s stopping you from going for it?
