Follow Your Heart To Win
When I was 18 years old, I made the decision to take my life seriously. Before that, I wasn't really doing much in school; I was skipping class, following the wrong crowd, and I wasn't doing any homework or giving life my best.
But I knew deep down that if I gave my best, then I could get what I wanted. So I decided to start going to class, to start doing my homework, and to focus on what I wanted. Since that moment, I have always tried to follow my heart in life. There is a feeling I get in my gut or in my chest about big decisions, decisions that say to me, "Arne, you know this is the right thing to do. It might feel weird or it might suck for a while, but you know you have to do this to be happy." I have found that trusting that feeling makes all the difference because it is like my inner compass.
There are so many people out there who will tell you what to do or how to be; it's everywhere, from Facebook to TV, friends, family, and magazines. It can get very confusing. But if there is one thing I have learned over the past 16 years since I made that decision to change my life, it is that most people don't even know what they want to do. So how can they tell you what you should be doing?
In the end, remember to follow your heart, surround yourself with people who support you and love you, and you will get so much more in return.
