To achieve true success, happiness and contentment it is vital that you follow your own calling, as compared to what your parents, family, colleagues, friends or society believes is the best for you. We each have unique skills and our own special calling, and no one but yourself can determine what is the best path for you. Walk your own path, not one laid down by someone else.

Resignation to Life
We have large, ambitious and exotic dreams when we are young, but as the years go by we let go of these dreams and settle for a more normal, mundane and day-to-day existence. This is the unfortunate truth for the vast majority, but not for everyone – and it does not need to be your truth either.
A radical, yet widely accepted belief amongst those with a strong spiritual bent, is that life has no external or material purpose. Society has brainwashed us to believe that we need to achieve so-and-so, making us all scurry around in a never-ending cycle of ‘doing’, instead of being able to just enjoy life and be in the present.
The Right Road
