Here’s The True Secret To Happiness

Stop wasting your time building other people’s dreams.

I don’t mean that tired line that seems to be on every third photo on Instagram about “build your dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs.” A job is a good thing, a rewarding thing, a valuable thing. If you have a job, you are doing well. You have succeeded in some way. Many others are not so fortunate.

  • Not motivational writers like me.
  • Not the Kardashians, the Real Housewives of Wherever, or your neighborhood bartender.

You are the master of your fate: you are the Captain of your soul

We’re all put here on this Earth to make something. Each of us has a legacy to leave. The problems come when we look to others to define our legacy for us. That’s when we chain ourselves to another person’s dream.

We harness ourselves to the dreams, desires and expectations of other people, and then wonder why we feel empty within.

We’ve got to stop trying to be filled by another person’s ambition and expectation.
