I believe that what we get out of life is what we’ve set ourselves up to get, so there’s no such thing as an inconsequential decision.
Our destinies are the culmination of all the choices we’ve made along the way, which is why it’s imperative to listen hard to your inner voice when it speaks up.
Don’t let anyone else’s noise drown it out.
~ Megan McCafferty
It is easier to live through someone else than to complete yourself.
The freedom to lead and plan your own life is frightening if you have never faced it before.
It is frightening when a woman finally realizes that there is no answer to the question ‘who am I’ except the voice inside herself.

Your time is limited, so 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.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
~ Steve Jobs
