Monday Quote: There Is No Map To Life

“It’s alright to do things the way you want. There is no map to life, no blueprints to survival, you can create your world day by day if you have a clear vision and an unwillingness to give up. ” -John O’Callaghan

I grew up in a world where I always thought, “Oh, well this is what I’m supposed to do.” For me, I was supposed to go to college. I was supposed to get that job right away, because that is what I thought was normal. There is nothing wrong with this, but when I meet people who are my age and have chosen to skip out on things like that, and are still doing incredible things with their life, I feel so inspired. There truly is no map. Things happen, plans fall through, we move places unexpectedly…it’s all part of the game. But if you have determination and goals, mindset is all it takes. Know that you can achieve whatever you want to achieve, and it will happen.
