“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 other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs 1955- 2011, Co-Founder of Apple Computer.
Do I need to add my pennies worth to this. He covers a lot of ground in this quote. It is a good time of the year whether you believe in resolutions or not, the New Year’s energy can be uplifting. It can be a turning point to look at what didn’t work in 2017. You don’t want to repeat that unless you want the same results for 2018. Do you tune into what your gut or heart is telling you about what your next steps should be? I have been guilty in the past, of paying too much attention to what others are saying & not listening to what my own internal intelligence is saying. This continues to be a work in progress as I listen to others who appear to have the answers, so I think that they must KNOW! But why is that? I’ve seen children with more clues than some of us adults. I am living what I believe is my path, but it can be hard sometimes to drown out the voices of strong opinionated people, especially if they are saying what the little voices of doubt have been expressing in my head.
And sometimes it does take courage to follow your heart and intuition. The more of this work that I do, the more I am convinced that I can manifest what I want, if I can keep the wants & not the don’t wants holding centre stage in my head. I have had too many evidences of this throughout my life. I’m sure you have had evidence as well, but often we don’t pay attention, we don’t notice, because the little things like finding a car park exactly where we want it, seem too insignificant. We can build on this understanding, trusting in ourselves and the universe to deliver, if we keep visualizing what it is that we want to achieve in our lives. Maybe it’s a certain way we would like to be, and then feel better about who we are becoming in the world. Then as Steve Jobs says, everything else is secondary.
Enjoy following your own voice!
