I believe that is a pointer to something you have to learn but are unwilling to (maybe because of an underlying fear). Like others, I felt the dissonance between the way you present yourself in this thread compared to other threads or in your blog.
There is a reason you are getting dragged down - you are trying to omit some steps from where you are to where you want to be. Instead of focusing only where you want to be, learn to accept and be ok with where you are at now. Then take the necessary steps without looking for shortcuts (they don't exist).
