Follow your heart. Follow your impulse.
Steve Jobs, Apple Inc Founder has a great quote about this very thing. He says, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice, and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”
Basically he’s saying to be true to yourself, YOUR heart, YOUR dream, YOUR desire and not someone else’s. You’ll never find happiness chasing someone else’s vision of what they want and desire for you. Only when you follow you own vision will you find the satisfaction and happiness that you not only desire but deserve?
You need to listen to you inner voice of wisdom and follow the impulse where it leads. How do you know if it’s right for you? That’s easy. It feels right. Pay attention to how it makes you feel. If you have even the slightest hesitation or negative gut reaction it won’t make you feel good about yourself. It means you’re not being true to yourself. Follow your impulse, instinct call it what you will. Only by following where it leads will the happiness and satisfaction you seek be yours.
