Don't ever let anyone insist you can't do something. Follow your heart. Go for it. It's your right - and maybe even your calling.
So many times something burned in my heart that I wanted to do. And so many times people stepped up to tell me you can't. It won't work. Some even said, it's foolish, not realistic.
Looking back I realize how many times I closed my ears to those people who couldn't see or feel what I did. People who wanted the best for me but didn't have the vision, or the passion burning in their hearts like it did in mine.
I think now, those things inside us, the ideas that won't go away, the desires that keep us awake at night, the pull towards something or other - might be a calling, the thing we are meant to do.
I think that's where courage and brave comes in. To follow our hearts. It's the best thing because when we do, there's this huge satisfaction we feel inside us.
There's something else. For a long time close friends have suggested I do something that I wanted but I hemmed and hawed because I didn't have the faith to believe I could get it off the ground. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to go for it. Amazingly, it's all falling into place. Taking that first step even when I don't believe it'll work is powerful.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
