F*ck the noise.
I don’t care if it’s just “how things are” or “what people do.” I don’t care if it means facing failure or ending up alone when all is said and done. I don’t care if anyone understands, or whether it fits with their vision of what it means to be any kind of anything in this world.
If you want to live a life that’s truly remarkable—one that’s so deeply aligned with the truth of who you’re here to be and the work you’re here to do—then stop listening to all the bullsh*t noise around you. Stop playing the same games and walking the same well worn paths as everyone else.
Do it your way, on your terms, around that which YOU most value. Regardless of whether or not it makes any sense to anyone besides you.
Far too many people don’t even know why they’re doing what they’re doing. They just do it because it’s “how things are done” or “what people do.” So why let what they think have any influence on how you live your life, how you love your people, or how you contribute to the world? Don’t.
Be a visionary.
Inspire and innovative.
Create the change.
Set the new standard.
Help them see a new way of being.
If it doesn’t make sense, find a way that does. If it doesn’t resonate, don’t conform. If it doesn’t feel good, learn to let go.
It’s your life.
