If you have ever felt that you are not doing what you want, you are not alone. There are millions of people who do the things they do because they have to. Some do this because of family pressures, market trends, recent developments, accidents etc etc. But, be it that profession you are in, the course you are pursuing or whatever it is, you should never lose the resolve to follow your heart.
I give you my top three reasons why you should follow your heart.
Your Heart already knows what you want
Your heart defines who you are. That is why some people are known to have a good heart- if they are generous, kind, love others and care about what happens to those close to them. While some are perceived to have an evil heart- if they are mean, are sadistic and don’t give a damn what they do to other people.
What your heart wants will always be dear to you. If your heart tells you to be a comedian, follow that path, start somewhere doing whatever you can and believe you me, you shall get there because your mind and soul will give you what your heart desires.
You will be happy
Happiness comes with contentment. Research has shown that most people who stay happy live even longer. Happiness is mostly found at work, with family, friends, nature and the Creator. If you follow your heart you will be happy. And you will live longer.
You will find freedom
While many people feel trapped in their circumstances, following your heart could be a source of freedom. You don’t have to look further than your close friends who chose not to follow those big dreams set for them by others. Sir Richard Branson of the Virgin Group is a free entrepreneur making money and so are others. Just follow your heart. Freedom is guaranteed.
In whatever you pursue keep you eye on the prize. All the things along the way just obstruct our view of the prize so that we may give up. It is only those who dare to dream that see the best that life has to offer.
