Happiness is something really important to be achieved out of our lives. You should always follow your inner voice and do what you want to do. Do not let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your inner voice; don’t ever be influenced by the herd. You need to fulfill your own dreams; you came to live your own life so why not live it the way you want to. Steve Jobs, a man who needs no introduction says, “Be Different and see the difference in your life”. It doesn’t mean that you should start roaming about naked just because you want to be different. It means think different, think creative, think out of the box but always follow your heart or your inner voice. Don’t let others to decide your future, it’s your life and time is limited.
