Isn’t it all about changing ‘I can’t’ to ‘how can I?’ If yes, why see walls not stairs? Have you ever felt like you are barely moving in life? Yes, then remember how you felt while climbing an inclined mountain. Next, ever felt like your life is moving smoothly? Sorry, but – maybe you are going downhill – get prepared for the crash.
Keep your process clean because in times of storm, the shallowness of the root structure is revealed. Keep grinding your dreams for no one would ever have crossed the ocean if he had gotten off the ship in a storm. Fail more till you learn what makes you fail, it will make you stronger, for the roots are only those that matter in a storm. Be very positive in life - the difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is all in how you use them. You need to remember that, you will surely lose against life. But it’s between, losing while walking-in and losing while walking-out. There will be no crown bearers in heaven if there are no cross bearers on earth. Keep going – play with the turns - a bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn.
Have you ever failed on the first trial? Well! If yes – remember that - the sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up. Still – if you think you are going through a lot – try stopping your breath till you see a glimpse of heaven - as the saying goes ‘if you want to forget all your other troubles, wear tight shoes.’ Never be afraid to try – coz it’s better to try something and fail than to try nothing and succeed.
Don’t wait enough to get something enough. There are no laws of starting when – as long as you start soon. If you have little, just use that instead of focusing on what you don’t have - if your sword's too short, add to its length by taking one step forward. Why? Because people sitting on top of the world, usually arrive there standing up with what they have. So, go get up now with whatever you have.
Do you know what’s the cheapest and the most valuable thing in the world? Advice. But – do you take people’s advice seriously? Well! I don’t. So, the best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give to others. See, then you will take it seriously. Because successful men follow the same advice they prescribe for others.
You are never too bad – trust me, if you really pay attention to your surroundings – there are a lot of people who are way unfortunate than you are – because in the land of the blind a one-eyed man is the King. So, feel proud with what you have and never ever look back - if Columbus had turned back, no one would have blamed him. Of course, no one would have remembered him either.
I know it’s hard but try to find positivity in everything. If you're starting to look wrinkled, don't worry. It covers the scars. You are never too old for anything – as you can feel young at any age if you are planning for the following day.
It’s okay to be different, it’s okay to see differently. Because if you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat. So be you, don’t let people’s opinion affect you on any scale – or be like the weather, it pays no attention to criticism. No matter how much you yell on a cloudy sky – it will flood the hell out of your house.
Lastly, be someone who can be themselves because if you are someone who walks on another's track, you will leave no footprints. Trails are made by those who – walked first or failed first. The writer can be reached at [email protected]
