Your time is limited....
I think most everyone is aware of the fact that at some point we all pass on, so it is important that we do something with the time we have. It is the variations of 'something' that makes each of us different. Do what you love to do, it is your life, you are the one living it. Why not make it enjoyable?
Don't waste your time living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice.
Follow your heart and intuition, they already know what you want to become.
Follow your heart, do what you want to do, don't look to others for your happiness. You are the only one that can decide what you want to do in any given circumstance. What you need to listen to is your inner voice. Life is short, don't give up your life for any reason.
For Steve Jobs, this was certainly true, he did what he wanted to do, he did it well and he died young. Looking backwards, isn't it phenomenal that he did. He was directed, don't you think? Directed to do what he did, starting so young, and being a forerunner in his field ... because he wasn't going to stay long. He trusted his gut.
"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Steve Jobs
