“No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.”

Article, a limerick and a Haiku

Throughout history, there have been numerous individuals who have been revered as great leaders. From political figures to spiritual gurus, many have inspired and motivated people to strive for greatness. However, as the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson suggests, no man is great enough or wise enough to determine our destiny. The only way we can truly be led is by restoring our belief in our own guidance.

It is natural for us to look up to others for guidance and inspiration. We seek out role models and mentors to help us navigate through the complexities of life. However, it is important to remember that while these individuals may have a lot of wisdom and experience, they are not infallible. They make mistakes, they have biases, and they are limited by their own perspectives.

Ultimately, we are the only ones who know what is truly best for us. We have our own unique talents, passions, and aspirations, and we must learn to trust ourselves to make the right decisions. This doesn’t mean that we should never seek out advice or support from others. It simply means that we should always be guided by our own inner compass.

When we learn to trust ourselves, we become more confident and empowered. We are less likely to be swayed by the opinions of others, and we are more willing to take risks and pursue our dreams. We become the masters of our own destiny, and we are able to create a life that is truly fulfilling and meaningful.

So, the next time you find yourself looking to someone else for guidance, remember that you are the only one who can truly lead yourself. Trust in your own wisdom and intuition, and have faith that you have everything you need to create the life you desire.


There once was a man who was wise
But he could not see through our eyes
He gave us advice
But it wasn’t precise
For our destiny, we must devise


Wise man speaks with care
But his words are not gospel
Our path is our own
