Trap #6: Guilt

Some people feel guilty for taking the question—What do I want to do to with my life—seriously.  They feel guilt imposed by other people to take their dream seriously.  As a result, they give up and leave it.

Remember that nothing is too trivial to be worthy of your interest.  No one but you can decide what you want to do with your life.  You must come to terms with this.  YOU, and only you, can, and will, decide on your life.

If the goal is something that captures your imagination and if it is something that you want to do, go for it.  This is especially true for many children of ambitious and successful parents.  For example, a daughter of a very successful businessman may feel she must live up to her father’s ambition and desire for great success.

She will feel that her interest for preserving the marshlands from pollution pales in comparison to a career in the city of London.  She must come to terms that she is the one who has to live with the decision.  The bottom line is that your decision is your decision. YOU are the one that has to live with it.
