Quotes About How to Find Your Life’s Purpose

“If you believe it, and you go for it, you’re gonna make it happen. If you really are confident about it, then you will eventually become what you’re hoping to be.”

“Middle School is the time where I really grew close to my mom, and she really helped me along with my teachers, to push through all that, and really focus on what I wanted to do.”

“So it was definitely a way for me to get away 100%, especially with the writing aspect of my music, but it was also a way to get closer to her when it came to listening to other music.”

“I realized that she couldn’t continue her mission in her life, to give back to other people, I kind of took it upon myself to make that my own mission.”

“So if if you want to do something, you can do it. You just have to really believe in it and not let other people get in your head. Your value comes from you. And that is probably one of the most important lessons that I have had to learn in order to get to this point.”

“I think life is adversity. And I think that everyone goes through their own level of adversity. And because of that, we are able to find resilience.”
