Do you have the courage to follow your dream ? Or will you die a dreamer ? Or will you die on the verge and on the edge of ‘could have,’ ‘should have’ and ‘would have.’ Are you listening to me Monday readers? It takes courage to admit a fall and it takes willingness to get up. Has Corona taken away your job ? But how hard have you tried searching for a new one ? It takes courage to be successful, it is far easier to be not successful. Misery will always dog those who didn’t try, success brings contentment.
If you don’t want to create a trend, keep sleeping like any other normal people. Just be mediocre and keep fitting in. Trying to be like everybody, following a trend, dressing like them, talking like them doesn’t need courage. It takes courage to be different, it takes courage to go where you have never been before. The greatest succes comes from having the freedom to fail. Ideas don’t come out fully formed, they only become clear as you work on them. You just have to have the courage to get it started.
It takes courage to think big. It takes courage to have purpose. Purpose makes you feel that you are a part of something bigger than yourself. It takes courage to have passion because it’s a calling. You need to put in a lot of work to stay alert to your calling. It takes practice to be the best but courage to be the first –be the first to change.
Please listen, it takes courage to live. In this society that we live today, where jealousy is the price of fame, where money is thought to be the only means of happiness, where love between partners are just in books – is there anybody reading this article who still have the courage to stand up for what’s right and is there anybody who still have the courage to follow his/her dream in this clouded society ? Yes–I hear you, you need to thank yourself for being you, you need to reward yourself for believing in you and you need to kiss yourself for not giving up on yourself.
If you want to build a wall–you need to bring the first brick and put it just in a way a brick needs to be placed today. That’s all you have to do. If you repeat that ‘discipline and consistency’ will be your best friend. And your goal will be in your sight. Because the only bridge that connects goals and achievements is ‘discipline and consistency.’
The world is a happening lie, the lie that makes you comfortable is what you think is true. And it takes courage to feel the uncomfortable truth. It takes courage to stay not corrupted. If you think you are strong enough to be you in this society, trust me –don’t even waste your time thinking you are wrong.
Do you have the courage to admit your weakness ? It takes courage to yell, “Yeah, I am weak but I will not give up.” Being courageous and being foolish sometimes seem very similar, the only difference is that fools think nothing is possible and courageous people think everything is possible. Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people for whom impossible does not exist in their dictionary. ‘Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools’, to quote Napolean Bonaparte.
Every dream in this world can be nurtured, be it small or big. All it takes is a little courage to believe in the process of nurturing that small tiny dream. The heart of the individual eternally hungers for the essence of genuine being, and the willingness to take on that responsibility is the same as the decision to live a meaningful life. If we pay attention, when we are seeking something, we will move towards our goal, more importantly, we will acquire the information that allows our goal itself to transform. It regulates our emotions, our motivational state and determines our thoughts.
Just one more courage for one more chance to change your choice to live the way you deserve.
