There is no map to life. Don’t get stuck in the rut of trying to follow that “map” or “roadmap” that your parents, friends, teachers, etc expect you to follow. Chart your own path, and you’ll be happier for it.

Want to succeed at work? Then don’t try to do your job. Instead, work towards something larger, more meaningful, and something that blends your convictions internally with your best ability to help others externally.
