Are your dreams chaired? Are your hopes already pictured over the wall? Are your wishes pillowed by fear? Are your days turning into a museum of disappointments? Are your diaries paged with stagnated and repeated words? Let me warm up your souls with a wavy and curvy ride. Let’s go.
“YOU CAN’T” must have been shirting you since the break, voices from your close ones must have always ranked first on walling your limits. If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore. I know it does sound filmy but “Everything you can imagine is real,” let’s mark Pablo Picasso’s words. It fans away those doubts if you start believing in possibilities. How to attain that? Do one thing every day that scares you – period. It will surely make you happy.
So, please – do what makes you happy – now. You can either experience the pain of discipline or the pain of regret, the choice is yours. Just try a little more, because your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up. I do know that life is a cosmos of choices, but don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great. So, do what you love not what you can. Just hold the vision and trust the process. Process? Wake up empty every-day, be in a learning mindset because people who wonder if the glass is half empty or full miss the point that the glass is refillable.
Waking up empty is something I do every-day. I fight – I hustle. Because without hustle, talent will only carry you till some point. As Thomas Edison said, “Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.” Remember – there will be a lot of things which will come to those who wait, but only those left by ones who hustles.
“Oh! He sings well,” heard a lot? I have. But only a few become stars why? Because he didn’t work hard. Why is hard work important when you have an amazing gifted talent? Because hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Hard work will make the noise at the end.
Were you ever stuck in holes of what to decide? If yes, you will need this. All the unsuccessful people make most of their decisions based on the current situation but successful people make their decisions based on where they want to be. It makes all the differences.
Next – perspectives. How do you see or define things? When you are in a dark place, you can say you are being buried or planted. Which one are you? I know it’s hard to be positive all the time, and it’s impossible because if the sun shines all the time, it will make a desert. So, accept the punches and make it rain while it lasts.
Never feel too small to make a difference in life, you are something enough for something. Like Dalai Lama said, “if you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.” Feel confident, keep learning, take everything in you because nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.
You can slow down but never stop, never stay still in life. Don’t stay in bed unless you can make money in bed. I know it’s hard at times, I know it’s boring at times, I know it’s useless at times but trust me, if you keep trying, if you keep believing – it will start working. Know that everything is hard before it is easy. The only way to move is to keep giving 100% everyday, have that learning-mindset. So, when you think about life, you will know that no amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.
