Follow your bliss, and don’t be afraid.

The doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.

The heroic life is living the individual adventure.

There is no security

In following the call to adventure.

Nothing is exciting

If you know

What the outcome is going to be.

To refuse the call

Means stagnation.

What you don’t experience positively

You will experience negatively.

You enter the forest

At the darkest point,

Where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,

It is someone else’s path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else’s way,

You are not going to realize

Your potential.—Joseph Campbell
