That's not always a bad thing, often times our family and friends suggest ideas to us out of the kindness of their hearts, as they want to see us succeed! Yet, I firmly believe that you should not do something unless you want to do it.
Let's use myself as an example here. As you all know, I have been pursuing a career as an actor for about 4 years now. It's super tough! But it's also super amazing, and I wouldn't trade it for the world!! However, I have certain friends and family members who have expressed their opinion to me about possibly changing my career path for a more stable line of work, so that I can have steady money coming in. As much as I appreciate their concern, and as much as I understand where it comes from, I am not going to stop pursuing acting at the moment. The reason why is that I want to keep doing it!! I am fully aware of the fact that this industry is hard to break into, yet I am also fully aware that you can do ANYTHING that you put your mind to! And no matter what anyone tells me, at the end of the day it is always my choice for the choices that I make in my life.
The same is true for all of you out there. Whether you want to take a new job, move to a new city, or simply try something new, don't let anybody stop you! And don't do something or move somewhere simply because someone else feels that it is right for you. Only YOU know what is truly right for you. Mental health specialist Dr. Wayne Dyer often writes about this in his books. Definitely check out his work. Envision what you would like to accomplish, as clearly as you possibly can! Once you know what you want, you will eventually reach your goals if you work hard, (pray often if you're religious!) and never give up. So get out there and follow YOUR heart! <3
