Maya Angelou Quote – Do What You Love

Updated on June 13th, 2022
Maya Angelou Quote - Do What You Love

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”  -Maya Angelou

Inspired words from an inspired lady. Maya Angelou did what she loved, and she believed that us as human beings are more alike than unalike, each of us trailing our wisps of glory. In an age seemingly built on money it is difficult to think of anything but.

However, you can only truly be remarkable at something you enjoy doing. If money is the only goal in sight, then if you don’t achieve it, you feel a failure, and when you do achieve it, it’s not actually going to bring joy.

I can’t say it enough, do what you love, and the money will follow.
