Live Life On Your Own Terms

The other day I was writing a commencement address with the President of a global hotel chain. Even though he was studying with me, I learned so much from working with him. Something he said in the closing remarks of his address to the student body were:

“I can live my life the way I want to live it, or I can live my life the way others want me to live it. Find your desire.”

I went on to share that when one discovers what they truly want to do/want to be, that becomes their ‘due North’ for their life’s Journey.It takes courage and dedication to pursue this single-minded purpose: to live life on our own terms to the best of our ability. It is a choice and as I have taught for decades,

everything in life revolves only around two things—to choose to do something or to choose not to.

In Vocal Awareness, the choice I encourage us to make is an empowering one. A choice that both benefits ourselves while also serving others.

‘Find your desire,’ live in the integrity of your choice—and enjoy the Journey.
