Your Personal Message #trust30

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Eric Handler asks:  “What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?”

Simple. LISTEN UP!!!

Stop chasing “things” to feel fulfilled. Success is creating an experience of life that allows you to explore your full potential. Pursue your passion. Make a difference. Build a legacy. Turn your vision into a Big, Hairy, Audacious Life Project, and push it to the max.

The benchmark for me is Steve Jobs, who keeps on creating, imagining and executing his vision even though he knows each new day when he wakes up could be his last. He doesn’t need the money, he does it for a higher purpose.

This post is part of a series inspired by The Domino Project’s #Trust30 Writing Challenge. Each day during the month of June 2011, we receive a thought from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay “Self-Reliance”, to use as a writing prompt.
