Follow Your Own Path

You can follow your own path in life or you can follow someone else's path for you. Let these poems remind you that to be happy you need to determine and take responsibility for your destiny, for your goals, and for your achievements in life.

In the book, You Can Have It If You Really Want It, Jide Adeniba says, "What people say does not determine your life, it is what you say that matters." Don't let other people set your life direction. You know your passion, the things you love to do - follow the direction you feel not what others feel.

Similarly, Scott Allan, in his book Drive Your Destiny, states: "We can focus on our own path and choose to ignore the noise in the world." Our culture today puts unneeded stress on people about what they should and should not be doing. You know yourself, follow your heart not what the world says!

But, Hal Elrod says it best: "If I could go from being found dead, told I would never walk again, going broke ... to creating the life I’ve always wanted, then there are no legitimate excuses for you not to overcome any limitations that have held you back from achieving everything you want for your life. None."

  1. Chosen Path
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012


    There are many people,
    In the world today.
    Some are born to help others,
    And others stray away.

    There is good and bad,
    In every part of life.
    We all have to choose our side,
    And hopefully one without strife.

    But once you know your way,
    And you start your chosen path,
    Life will become clearer,
    And you'll experience less wrath.

    So stay true to who you are,
    And follow all you're dreams.
    And don't be scared of the unknown,
    Be a part of the winning team.



  2. so stay true to who you are, and follow all you're dreams


  3. Find Your Passion
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    In life, there are many who offer advice
    Many times there are trying to be nice
    But in your heart you know
    Sometimes the advice doesn't flow
    With the things you long to do.

    Find your passion, think about things
    Follow your heart and life will bring
    A life that satisfies you
    And success in all you do.



  4. life is what you make it.  Find your own path to fulfillment


  5. Don't Compare Yourself
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Don't compare yourself to what others do
    Live your life and follow through
    What others say and what others do
    That doesn't mean that is for you!

    Just because one person loves a thing
    That doesn't mean you have the same feeling
    Discover your gifts, be true to you
    Don't work a job that makes you blue.

    Life will reward you when you walk your own way
    Life will be exciting each and every day
    Find a way to do the thing you love to do
    Don't compare yourself to the other fellow!



  6. A Path
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    God designed a path for you
    You will find it within what you love to do
    He gave you a gift unlike others have
    He works for you on your behalf.

    If you follow His plan
    You will find success, you can!
    We all have a purpose, never doubt
    Believe this, and all will work out.

    He made you unique with special talent
    He wants you to use it not keep silent
    Your path can find much happiness
    You just have to show your readiness.

    So follow the path and let God assist
    In helping you find your bliss.
    Life is too short for wasting your days
    God will help you in many ways.
