This morning I received a very nice email from a young lady that has been following my journey on Instagram and following the site. Apparently, she has been “wrestling” with some career decisions, and she wanted some advice on what I thought she should do. Although, I was very humbled by the fact that my personal journey would inspire someone to actually reach out to me, I didn’t feel comfortable giving her advice. I am not a therapist, and I do not feel comfortable giving someone advice based off of a few social networking “likes & comments.” However, I was compelled to tell her to “Follow Her Heart”.
I firmly believe that it all starts from the heart. When you follow your passion and truly love what you choose to do in life, you will NEVER work another day in your life. You must never be afraid to explore. Never be afraid to define who you are, to express what you want, and to walk boldly in your purpose. When you are truly capable of doing all of those things, you will never have to pursue what you were meant to attract in the first place. When you do what you love, the universe will conspire to assist you and success will be inevitable. Unfortunately, so many of us often ignore our hearts desires. We become complacent with just trying to “make a living,” instead of actually stepping out on faith and attempting to pursue our passion. This is why people usually end up miserable, working jobs that they don’t like, or are still trying to “find themselves” well into their thirties. Trust me, the road to success may not always be an easy one to travel. However, once you get to your destination, you will realize that all of the bumps and bruises along the way were certainly worth it.
