Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #20: Use Your Talents and Abilities for Your Own Purpose.
Live for your own causes, and you will accomplish more than if you live for the cause of someone else. People in our lives that try to help us on the right path mean well, but we have to live our own lives. It is very easy to suggest to someone that they might like doing X, or they might like the money in Y, or that there is a lot of demand in Z right now. Trends come and go. One big money making field now could be nonexistent in 10 years or less. the people who know us best can sometimes offer useful guidance. However, you should keep in mind that you are the one who needs to put in the effort, show up to work, and deal with any challenges along the way, not whoever recommended a certain path.
