Every person dreams and makes plans for the future, then they work hard to see those dreams and plans come to fruition. Don’t let other’s values and actions dictate your attitude and behavior. This often leads to making wrong decisions out of a desire to please. Take time to think about your dreams and goals, and how they correlate with the important areas of your life.
What works for one, may not be meant for you. People may present you with opportunities that garnered them success, but if you don’t view the opportunity in the same light, you’re wasting their time and yours. Speak up for what you believe in or dislike. In doing so, a person can only respect your wishes. That’s not to say that what you choose to do will always be favorable and in your best interest, but you have to journey down your own path.
