A Steve Jobs Quote
Its just like what Steve Jobs said. "Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition". So what does that mean exactly?
To me, it means knowing what you want in life and going for it. I think we are all afraid of failure, lack of security and sometimes putting yourself out there without knowing what the outcome will be. Life is already a surprise, so instead of following our hearts and finding our passions we keep our 9-5 bank hour jobs. We decide it's easier and a safer route because we believe that a steady pay cheque will keep our life in check. But will it make us happy?
I recently decided that it was not enough for me. I am not the type of person who can have the same routine every day. Entering the same data into the same computer program day in and day out while getting paid $17.00 an hour. I needed more, and I wanted more so I did the unthinkable. I quit my job, I started my own business from scratch and now I am exploring every opportunity to make myself a success. Am I scared to death? Absolutely. It has been 3 months now and I have been working myself into the ground trying to get my name out there. and still have years to go. I am going to social parties to network, volunteering my time to visit venues. Spending money without getting a steady pay cheque. But guess what? I am the happiest I have ever been in a long time. I had my first event last weekend and it was a major success. 3 months it took for me to fully realize I made the right decision. I am so incredibly happy to fulfill what I was born to do. I was born to plan events, to make people happy. I love love, and to know that I will be surrounded with couples who will be exchanging those vows makes me swoon. To know I will plan charity events and be able to be apart of a cause is absolutely heartwarming.
To know that I had the courage to follow my heart and intuition.....and it worked!
