You have to do what you want with your life because most people don’t have the privilege of knowing what they want. Most people stumble and fumble through life, wondering what it would be like to have something that truly compels, inspires and ignites them. And because they do not have the answer, they choose the safest route available and they advise others to do the same. But you have to remember that you’re different. If you’re lucky enough to know what you want out of life – truly and clearly and explicitly, you cannot listen to the advice of those who don’t. They are playing in an entirely different arena and if they were playing in yours, their advice would be wildly different.
You have to do what you want with your life because you’re the only one it’s going to end up mattering to.
The truth about life is that none of us can be sure why we’re here or what we’re meant for. But we can be sure of what we want. And that’s as good a reason as any to go after it. // thoughtcatalog.com
