“The universe is transformation: life is opinion.”Marcus Aurelius
Forget what everyone else is telling you to do. Do you.
Your gut (instinct) is already telling you what to do. When you feel it pulling you in a certain direction, why is it so hard to listen to it? Because it’s likely going against the grain. Of other people’s expectations. Of other people’s motivations. Maybe they are right (particularly if they are wise and experienced in what they are talking about) or maybe they’re wrong. Sometimes the only way to know is to go with your gut and find out the hard way.
Whenever you feel the urge to lend a hand or help someone, do it.
Whenever you feel called to choose one career decision over another, do it.
Whenever you feel the pull of standing up for your values and principles, do it.
And if all else fails, seek the advice of someone smarter than you.
If we don’t stick to who we are and who we want to be, then who are we?
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
