You know what to do

You are the world’s leading expert on you. So give yourself some good, appropriate advice, and follow that advice.

It’s great to be inspired by others, but you don’t have to have some guru telling you what to do. You know what’s best for you, and you’re perfectly capable of doing it.

Sure, it’s easy to seek the advice of others and then to complain when that advice doesn’t work. A much better strategy is to take full responsibility for your own decisions, and then to do whatever is necessary to do what you’ve decided to do.

You know what rings true and what doesn’t. You know what you’ve been through, and where you would like to go.

So make full use of all those things you know about yourself. Make full use of the passions and preferences, skills and wisdom that make you who you are.

Seek some good, solid advice from the expert, and then put that advice into practice. You know who you are, and what you must do, so jump up and get going.
