Many times, we allow other people to influence us because we feel they are wiser and more intelligent than we are. Our logical mind takes over and agrees with what they say, and we make choices that aren’t always in our best interests. We end up following a path to what we think will bring us success only to discover later, maybe after many years, that we made the wrong choice for us.
We came here to express our individuality, not to follow in another’s footsteps, doing what they did. We each have gifts and talents to share with the world. There are many CEO’s of large companies who would rather be an artist, musician or other creative endeavor. They were not encouraged to follow their passions and end up living an unfulfilled life.
When we make choices from our logical mind and not from our heart, we give away our personal power. It’s okay to listen to our logical mind, but we should follow our heart and our true path.
