Stop lying to yourself

I am going to be a doctor…because my parents and cultural media tells me to.

I should become an accountant…because it is a safe and well-paying job in the world of business.

I will sell my soul to whatever job pays the best…so I can make unethically large amounts of money.

If the second part of those sentences rings true in whatever you are trying to pursue, then my question to you is: why?

Stop lying to yourself about what you truly want to do. Oftentimes we are too focused on trying to please other people–our friends, family, and social media–that we forget to please the most important person in our lives: ourselves.
