Leo Barnett says, “When you reach for the stars you may not quite get one, but you won't come up with a handful mud either.” There are many roads that lead to one destination. If you keep striving for your dream, goal, or passion, you will eventually achieve it. Often, we try to follow the plan that is laid out by someone else. His or Her plan may work, but not quite for you. The reason the plan does not work for you is because you have to find out what works for you and your situation or as one of my friends would say you have to put your stank on it. Finding out what works for you does not make you a rebel or a person who has a contrary nature; it makes you aware of your needs and capabilities. Being cognizant of you is the most awesome gift you can give to yourself. That also means that you have a solid foundation in self and no one can shake who you are. This also means that you understand your limits and your boundaries. Trying to appease people will soon become a chore of the past and you will move forward in what is uniquely designed for you- your future. If you are still wary about moving forward in your dream, goal or passion, then today study yourself and see how YOU are going to live your destiny now!
