Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Steve Jobs
How many of us have the courage to do the right thing?
What is the right thing?
How many of us listen to our heart?
How many of us feel free enough to do what ever it is that we want to do?
Take a moment to write down a single crazy freedom idea that has been lurking at the back of your mind.
Analyze this idea.
What is it?
What does this mean to you and why?
Is this your idea, desire or goal or is it someone else’s?
Why have you not achieved this yet?
What is holding you back?
If we observe great leaders either in industry or in society, we will find that the only thing that sets them apart from the rest of us is their ability to have the courage to do what ever it is that they dream of. In some cases, mostly in politics, the results of this courage is not very nice, but the undeniable fact remains the same. They had the courage to do what they wanted to do.
I always advise people to err on the side of caution when doing what they want when it is in relation to other peoples lives, and emotions, however by identifying the desire we are able to mold the implementation and mitigate any negative effects of our ideas.
This week, write down your responsibilities, those commitments that you have made to support your family friends and your responsibilities to work. Then write down what you dream of.
Have the courage to take a positive stop to upgrade your dreams and ideas, then have the courage to do something small towards the achievement of your desires.
You are on earth to be you. Have the courage to live it!
