"There is only one success to be able to spend your life in your own way."
Who wouldnt prefer to spend their time doing those things they love to do instead of feeling bogged down with an assortment of tasks that they feel they have to do? Without question, all of us would much rather spend our precious moments doing our own thing where we fulfill our dreams and aspirations. Yet few of us ever do so.
"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar."
How many of us feel tied down to a job that we dont like, where we feel we are over worked, under paid and rarely appreciated? Too many. And how many of us dream of a day where we can finally seize those magical moments that we constantly envision in our minds eye and bring them to life in our daily lives? Most of us, to be sure. So whats holding us back? In a nutshell, were not following our hearts and doing our own thing.
"To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness."
Why should anyone stifle their creativity, throttle their imagination and place a variety of limitations on themselves and their abilities? They shouldnt and neither should you. You have special talents, gifts and abilities that are distinctively unique to you. You need to use them or risk losing them forever.
Abraham Maslow reminded us of the importance of carving your own niche in life when he said, "A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be." And so must you.
You were placed on earth for a reason. Yes, you were. You have an important purpose a special song that you hold inside that gives your life meaning and direction. Your purpose shapes all of those incredible dreams you hold close, deep down in your heart and your soul. You desperately need to boldly chase those dreams, fearlessly fashioning your life around those activities that inspire you, excite you and move you to action.
"My mother said to me, If you become a soldier, youll be a general; if you become a priest, youll end up as the pope. Instead, I became a painter and wound up as a Picasso."
You should passionately pursue your dreams with all of the excitement, enthusiasm and energy you have to offer, never allowing anything or anyone to stop you from fulfilling your date with destiny. You need to throw everything you have into your special niche in life all of your heart, soul, energy and ambition and make your dreams come alive.
And more than anything else, you should harness the spectacular power of these dreams and then focus on putting this power to work for you each and every day for the rest of your life.
The Bottom Line: When you do those things you were born to do, youll sing your song better than anyone else could ever dream of singing it.
