The greatest harm any man can do to himself is to trust the decisions of others so much that he can’t decide anything for himself about his own life.
The end result of this, is that he will have no definition for his own life. His life will be what others defined it as. No man goes far or achieves anything meaningful out of life following this path.
It’s good to listen to what others think about you and your plans but don’t let them define you. No one knows you better than you know yourself. Don’t allow the thoughts of others limit you.
That journey you’re about to embark upon is going to be successful if only you can be brave enough to trust your inner guts and start irrespective of what others think.
To everyone, you may not look like it, but if you feel deep down you you can become it, then go for it. Don’t let anyone talk you out of greatness thereby making you live far below what you could actually have been.
What is your definition of you?
