“Living authentically”

"Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking." - Steve Jobs

Insisting on what you truly want is a fundamental aspect of living a fulfilling life. To settle for less than what you are capable of achieving is to deny yourself the opportunity to experience the full range of human emotions, including passion and joy.

From a young age, I have always known that my path in life is mine to determine. While I value the opinions and perspectives of others, I ultimately make decisions based on what feels right to me. To pursue a life that is not of my choosing is to live inauthentically, which is something I am not willing to do.

While it is true that pursuing one’s dreams comes with the risk of failure, I believe that it is better to take ownership of my mistakes than to live a life that is dictated by someone else’s expectations. By choosing my own path, I am able to learn from my experiences and gain a deeper understanding of what truly matters to me.

In order to achieve success on my own terms, I have learned to march to the beat of my unique drum. For me, this has meant pursuing a career as a bodybuilder and a philosopher. For others, it may mean something completely different. The key is to identify what makes you truly happy and to pursue it with all of your heart.

At the end of the day, I believe that we are all capable of achieving greatness. We just need to have the courage to insist on what we truly want and to take ownership of our lives. By doing so, we can experience the full range of human emotions and live a life that is truly fulfilling.

I am love. I am joy. I am good.
