Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Everyday we have to make difficult decisions in our lives. Our minds tell us to do one thing, but our hearts tell us to do something else.

When people tell you to follow your heart, they are not talking about the heart that moves blood in your body. To follow your heart means to do what makes you feel happy!

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, thinks it is important to listen to yourself and to follow your heart. He started his own business in his parents’ garage, and now his technology is in homes all over the world! He didn’t let anyone stop him.

When did you follow your heart? What makes you happy?


1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

Yes its very good to follow our hearts and do everything that makes us happy but we cant do it all the time.

Sometimes we have to stop following our hearts because of others!

If my dreams cause problems for my beloved ones or hurt them I forget what I want and what makes me happy.😒
