In this chapter, Hollis is urging women not to let other people distract them from their goals. She acknowledges that there are a lot of challenges a person is bound to face once they commit to realizing a particular goal or adhering to a given lifestyle. Again, by using examples, Hollis makes sure to remind women that these distractions do not necessarily come from ill-intended people, yet they can come from friends and relatives as well. The author reiterates that it is not their job to pull everybody alongside them, but should instead only strive to show-up for their own lives as they pursue their own dreams. Hollis stresses that women will have to make decisions that other people do not necessarily have to weigh in on, as well as stand up against people who might try to talk them out of their pursuits.
