Why You Need To Follow Your Heart?
John Mackey co-founder of Whole Foods became impatient with college, dropped out and started a business.
But his mum even until her death thought he was wasting his life creating and growing Whole Foods Market instead of pursuing a more conventional career in medicine, law, or business.
Today, as co-CEO, Mackey leads a $9 billion firm that has helped millions of people consume better foods by bringing organic and natural foods into their daily lives.
When asked his advice to his 18-year old self he concluded among other statements:
“Through it all, always follow your heart. If you are able to listen to your heart, it will be your best guide in life.”
The key is to take chances, follow your heart, make mistakes and take the time to learn from them.
