#120DamnGoodAdvice #3 — Follow Your Bliss

August 3, 2012 § Leave a comment


Reflecting on Sinclair Lewis’s novel Babbitt (1922), Joseph Campbell, the profoundly wise American mythologist and philosopher said, “Remember the last line? ‘I have never done a thing that I wanted to do in all my life.’ That is a man who never followed his bliss.”

With this statement, Campbell nailed the secret of living a joyous, fruitful, and successful life:

Follow your bliss. That which you love, you must spend your life doing, as passionately and as perfectly as your heart, mind and insticts allow. And the sooner you identify that bliss, which surely resides in the soul of most human beings, the greater your chance of a truly successful life.
