Who Are You Doing It For?

Tomi Adedeji

Do it for you

When you are doing your daily duties, whether it's your job or lack thereof, whether it's your degree, why are you doing it? Seriously, look at yourself in the mirror and be honest with yourself. Why are you doing it? What is the true motivation behind what you are doing?

If the answer is anything other than because you want to or because it's for a cause that you care about then stop.

You need to live your life for the betterment of yourself and those around you. Don't live it because your mum or dad wishes that they did what they're imposing on you with their life. Don't do what they want you to do. Do what you want to do.

Are you really gonna let someone, who's opinion won't matter in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, stop you from pursuing your dream? If you do, you'll end up resenting the people that you feel have made you do what you're doing. Sacrifice your comfort today and feel the tension today and have the conversation today, because it'll pass. But if you continue on the path of being a doctor when you really want to be a musician because your friends got into medical school, if you continue on the path of becoming a lawyer because your family wants that for you and you're afraid they'll judge if you follow your dream of becoming an athlete, then that tension will grow as time goes by and your relationships will really be harmed.

Do what you love love what you do

We need people in our lives, but we need them to lift us up, not to hold us back. So do what's right for you because you want to, not what they say is right for you because they want you to do something. It's not worth it.
