… and do it for yourself.
Do yourself a favor and follow your own dreams.
Don’t do it to be famous or to be recognized.
Don’t do it because others are telling you to do so.
Do it simply because you want to do it—because it gives you a sense of fulfilment, because it makes sense to you, because it makes you deeply happy, and because you love yourself.
Don’t worry. This is different from being self-centered, especially when it makes a difference in other people’s lives.
