Last week I made a decision to embark on a course of study that, I believe, will greatly impact both my personal and my professional life. On the day that I was on the cusp of making this big decision, I attended a concert with a friend. All the music was fantastic but it was the very first song that I know I was meant to hear. I’m sure my dad was there with me in spirit, as he so often is, because the message was from a father and the lyrics went like this:

In life as in love, you know I need to remember                                                      
There’s such a thing as trying too hard
You got to sing like you don’t need the money
Love like you’ll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart if you want it to work

Sung by Kathy Mattea, Lyrics by Susanna Clark and Richard Leigh

I was very grateful for this reminder. Although there are many things to take into consideration with any major business/life decision; the cost, time, effort, and so on, the most important factor is, “does it make your heart sing?” I know that all the planning and striving in the world won’t be as much of a barometer of my success as my level of passion will.

If I come from my heart, I know it will work.

Let your spirit soar!
