Walk Your Own Path
How often do others tell you that you should do this with your life or you should do that with your life? I know it’s happened to me a lot over the years. And I imagine it’s happened to you.
Generally the people giving the advice are well meaning. And their motives vary. Sometimes they tell you that, “That’s where the money is!” Sometimes they tell you that, “It’s the path to happiness!” or, “It’s the way to be successful!” or, “It’s the path to true spirituality and inner peace!” And that’s great. The path that’s working for them is wonderful for them. But…
It Doesn’t Matter Where They Think The Path Leads If It’s Not Your Path.
You may want success. You may want happiness. You may want wealth. You may want greater spirituality and inner peace. You may want a combination of all these, or you may want something completely different. But whatever you want, even if it’s exactly what someone else is telling you their path leads to, your path still might be different because you are different, unique, with your own skills and talents and dreams and desires.
You Are You. Your Path is Your Path. No One Else Can Walk It. No One Else Can Tell You What It Is.
Sure, others may guide you. But you have to discover your own path. Once you’re on your true path you’ll find guides, mentors, and way posts to keep you heading the right direction. And you must ignore those telling you your path isn’t right. Besides, how could they possibly know whether your path is right? It’s your path, not theirs.
What if You Haven’t Discovered Your True Path?
Take a few minutes and reflect on the things that bring you the most joy in life. I’m talking true joy. What really makes your heart sing? What moments are filled with pure bliss, where time seems to stand still and the world falls away leaving you in a perfect moment?
These are your passions and they’re clues to your true path. Some might call it your calling in life instead of your path. That’s okay. Whatever you call it, it’s yours and you should live it.
How Do I Live My True Path?
The best way I’ve found to start living your true path, to really walk it, is to ask yourself the following question, “How can I use my passions to help others or to make the world a better place?”
Now Go Do It! Get out there and Walk Your Own Path!
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
