Are you not tired living a life where your moods are being decided by the moods of your boss? Are you still thinking that you still have some more time left for setting fire to your dream? Man – you are late, tomorrow you will wake up and curse yourself for why you thought that you were too early to start just because you were afraid to start.
There he tugged the mosquito net after he turned off the room light, leaving just the lamp on – he reached out for his dairy under his pillow. The thick diary was just about to be over, then he drove to the empty page to be filled for the day and for his world inside his heart. He wrote all his crazy dreams – wanting to be a dancer. He even wrote of performing himself in India’s Got Talent, and becoming a celebrity in the world of dancing. He kept writing, he kept crying, his pen would never stop flashing out his thoughts over the empty pages. Then he slept – forgot to even close the diary and to even off his witness – the lamp. His mom then woke him up, he closed his diary, threw under his pillow, ran to wash up for school, then he went – sat on bus –talking to his friends about what home-works were fired the other day, what breakfast they had in the morning, what’s the preparation for the exam, everything – everything was just against what he wrote before he slept the other day. Why? Why you slept with your dream and woke up with someone-else’s dream? Your longing to be unique before you called the day just turned into normalcy the moment your alarm breaks your sleep, why?
Yes! If you are happy living like the rest, no problem but if your decision is kept on disrupted by your hidden dream inside you, you need to get up right now if you don’t want your last drop of your tears to be the tears of disappointment. If you want to live your dream, kill the ‘BUT’ in you. “I want to be a singer but … I want to be a dancer but … I want to be a doctor but …” as long as you have BUT in your life, your life will never take you seriously. Instead of saying BUT, just accept that you are an idiot, at least that might motivate you.
There are so many things running from left to right in your mind, take them seriously – coz they are possibilities. If it seemed impossible sometimes, remember this – you are just not so great to think impossible things.
Don’t you ever think of sacrificing your dream for the sake of your love, because that is not at all your love but investing points to be raised when you quarrel with him/her. Please – no excuses – just keep your dream in front – run towards it, don’t take breaks on the way thinking you have free time, because your first dream will break the dawn for the next dream.
When you think your dreams are worthless just because people laughed at it, remember what people must be saying when Edison was thinking of inventing bulb when the world was focussing on hand to mouth life. Your dreams are plots of the film that you need to be scripting and directing, the game is yours – why are you always trying to hire other directors to direct your film based on your life story?
Those voices in your heart will be noises when you don’t listen to them but once you give your full attention to the voices in your heart, you will realise that it’s a GPS track, where the destination is in a place name SUCCESS. Trust me – you are an all in one package, if you can force yourself in what you don’t want and still live above average, think where will you be if you push yourself up in what you want; won’t it be an unstoppable one?
There are so many ready to laugh at you when you give up. Trust me – I will be the first to laugh when you run away from your dream, please don’t make me happy, do it for yourself, have a good week, see you next Monday.
