Quotes to Live By - We are who we choose to be

Posted by Lauren Eyer

I believe we are who we choose to be.  Nobody is going to come and save you.  Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be a sorry as you if you don't get it.  So don't give up on your dreams.
Don't be afraid to try something new if it interests you.  Even if you find you aren't a complete success, or it isn't what you thought it would be, you will at least have tried and at least learn something new.  By following your heart and what interests you, you will naturally be lead on a path truer to yourself and your passions and purpose.
When I started my business, I wasn't sure what my purpose was, or what I should be doing.  I just knew I had a desire to have a business, and I wanted to help people.  The only way I thought I could contribute to the latter was to share my life experiences, what I've learned from them and what I've learned from all the personal development I read and do.  I thought, maybe I could say it differently than someone else has said that resonates with people differently.  I'll be honest and say that the journey and decision to start my business wasn't just about helping others.  It was also something I needed to do for myself.  I had a goal and I needed to find passion in my work again, and reconnect with my inner voice and maybe find my purpose along the way.  Writing, and sharing experiences and thoughts from some of the greatest minds are some of the ways I can do that here, and I love to share that with you, reading this.
I didn't have everything figured out when I started, I've failed, and I still don't have things figured out.  But, I love doing what I'm doing, and my point is that if you have an interest in trying something; whether that's your career, a hobby, etc.  Do it.  Just try.  I've learned that no on else is going to come and hold you hand and do it for you, and you're the only person who knows what you truly want to do anyway.  You have to take the initial steps yourself.  And you'll find there are a lot of amazing people that show up who will believe in you and support you along the way, even if there are the critics out there.
Listen to yourself.  Your ideas aren't stupid and you can do anything when you put in some work.  You don't have to settle for a life filled with things you somehow just accepted.  You have control over putting things and doing things in your life that you want to do.  Take the responsibility, take action, and just try.
