“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs
Earlier this week I wrote about my goals with Mr. Breeze, one of which is inspiring people to have a change of heart. “What do you mean a change of heart?” you may ask. I have found that many people hold beliefs that they do not believe themselves, but it is what their social groups expect them to believe. To believe anything different is to go against the status quo.
Many social groups instill terrible beliefs in their followers, yet if the followers listened to their hearts they would know what the right thing is to do. This is an extreme example, but look at the KKK. This is a group that has activated a hatred in their followers for their own profit and gain. If these people thought about the issues the KKK promotes, without the KKK’s influence, they would probably disagree with their creed and do the right thing by treating people as equals. The same philosophy can be applied to many other social groups. Truly thinking for yourself often leads people to make the right decisions, which can lead to a change of heart.
Think for yourselves, people.
