Do not take the advice of those old sages and wait until you can "walk in confidently in the direction of your dreams."
If you do, you'll never take the first step.
Instead, leap and learn to fly on the way down (and for the heaven's sake, please don't wait until you lose ten pounds!)
Now is the time to jump in with both feet, arms failing, hair flying, and screaming at the top of your lungs, "i can do this!"
You don't have to believe it..you just have to do it.
Follow your dreams
