Courage & Your Inner Voice
Following your path requires having faith in your "inner voice" as the best guide for your life, and requires courage more than any other quality of character.
The need for courage is generally not the result of the technical difficulty of your path. Your unique path is not likely to be more technically difficult than any other path that you might have chosen. In fact, you will probably find your path to be
the easiest that you have ever pursued because it is so personally fulfilling.
One must exhibit courage in the face of self-doubt. Despite the sincere beliefs of others regarding what is your best path through life, you must follow your heart as your guide. Only your inner voice can possibly know what will ultimately make you
happy. Learn to trust it.
Some find courage in the belief that a higher power guides their inner voice. If you believe in God or a higher power as your life's guide, you must have faith that God takes the most direct path to communicate with you. Why would He do so
through a friend, relative or minister when He can touch and guide you directly through your heart? Anyone who claims to be looking out for you or to speak for a higher power but who does not guide you to trust your inner voice is really just imposing his views upon you for his own reasons. Do
not trust the advice of such a person.
Regardless of where you believe your inner voice originates, if you wish to achieve true fulfillment in your life, you have no choice but to follow it.
Once your have garnered the courage to follow the path laid out in front of you, the rest is just placing "one foot in front of the other."
