Why is choosing your own path important?

Choosing my own path is important because it allows me to build, envision, and conquer the unimaginable. What better way to get to destiny than to create your own steps? I have learned that my path is what makes me unique, and allows me to be a guiding light to others. From experience, choosing my path has not been an easy one, however it is one that has and continues to humble me, test me, and become an intricate key in unlocking the door to success.
