Listen to the beat of your own drum

Listen to the beat of your own drum.

Listen to the beat of your own drum.

Indlela ibuzwa kwabaphambili is a Zulu saying that means we ask from those who came before us what the right path is. This is often true but not always. Sometimes we have to listen to the voice within, for the path that our souls wants to follow. Sometimes those who came before us and those who are around us are incapable of understanding our destiny because it isn’t theirs.

There’s a clip where Jay Z says that his uncle wouldn’t believe him when he said he will sell a million records. He says he doesn’t blame his uncle because he had never sold a million records, that was beyond his reality and he couldn’t believe it for him either. Because Jay Z was wise enough this time, not to listen to his uncle, he has sold a million records many times.

There comes a time in the life of anyone who will do anything of significance; to leave the road well traveled and beat their own path. There will come a point in your life if you are committed to your souls’ calling; that you can’t look around because they may not understand.

When that time comes you will have to trust the voice inside. It might be a lonely path for a season. But if you stick with it long enough, your gift, your path will draw to you, your tribe. Those who have come before you and those who are on the same path. Those from whom you can ask what the right path is because they have, like you said yes to the voice within.

In the meantime give yourself permission to trust your intuition. Trust that your wildest dreams are not leading you astray. Leave that which is comfortable, the beaten path. Your destiny calls you, will you heed the call?
