You are the CEO of your life

You are the CEO of your life.

All the people that have led you to believe that you should do this or you’re supposed to do that, have no idea what they’re doing.

None of us have any idea what we’re doing.

Life is an experiment.

There is no manual for how it works.

What works for me may not work for you.

What makes your parents happy or your neighbors happy may not make you happy.

You determine your destiny.

You define your own happiness.

Stop doing what you think you’re supposed to be doing or should be doing and follow your heart.

There are a million different paths to take in life.

Just because most people are going right doesn’t mean you can’t go left.

Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean you have to.

Following the same path that everyone else takes may be easy but the easy route is not always the fulfilling route.

If you have a crazy idea and everyone tells you you can’t do that, prove them wrong.

The only certainty for us all is death.

Everything else between now and then is a blank canvas for you to create.


Do what makes YOU proud.  Follow the path that lights YOUR fire.  Follow your heart and never surrender to the status quo.  True happiness will follow.
