Only You Know What Is Best For You

You cannot listen to what others want you to do.
You must listen to yourself.
Society, family, friends do not know what you must do.
Only you know and only you can do what is right for you.
So start right now.
You will need to work very hard.
You will need to overcome many obstacles.
You will need to go against the better judgment of many people and
will need to bypass their prejudices.
But you can have whatever you want if you try hard enough.
So start right now and you will live a life designed
by you and for you
and you will LOVE your life.
