Hi everyone! How was your holidays so far? I hope you’ve all had a wonderful time last Christmas and New Year.
Today marks the start of a new beginning another year of new adventures, new learnings, new everything.
As I was browsing the internet for inspirational videos and thoughts to share with you guys to start the year right, I came across this and I thought of sharing this video with you as I have always been a big fan of anything I consider inspirational. You may not be a fan of these kind of videos like me, but hey, a few minutes won’t hurt your schedule. Try watching this at least once, then you can share with us your reactions later. 🙂
Imagine yourself, that you are old, on a porch in a rocking chair. Looking back on your life.
Got that image? Good. Now let me tell you.
Studies show that, the biggest regret from elderly people on their death pad, IS NOT WHAT THEY DID, IT’S WHAT THEY DIDN’T DO. THAT IS, THEY NEVER TALKED.
How sad would it be to get to the end of your life, and realize you never truly lived. THIS IS YOUR LIFE, NOBODY ELSE’S.
No matter how much your society, your parents, your friends, want you to live, the way they want you to live, YOU RUN THE SHOW!
When you shut your eyes, and go to sleep at night, the entire world cease it to exist. And when you wake up, it’s born again.
THIS IS YOUR LIFE, YOU’RE IN CONTROL. You got to do what feels right in your heart.
Now, go back to the rocking chair.
And think what would your future self say. About the ideas you never created, the books you never wrote, the words you never spoke. ‘Cause you are tired or you are scared, or you want to fit-in and be cool. But GREATNESS isn’t about being cool, and great men or women would never fit in, cause they stand out.
But i get it! YOU WANT IT EASY.
BUT IF GREATNESS WAS EASY, YOU WOULD SEE A LOT OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE. A LOT OF GREAT PEOPLE.
Astronauts, professional athletes, or superheroes!
But you don’t.
You see a lot of people within mouse, TRYING TO GET LIKES.BUT, THEY DON’T EVEN LIKE THEMSELVES!
See. The difference between WINNERS and LOSERS is persistent, and ain’t talent, it’s PERSISTENCE.
My teacher told me about the bamboo tree. After planting the bamboo seed, it takes five years for it to break through the ground. That’s five whole years of attention, care, and water everyday.
If you miss a day, it dies right there. But once it breaks through the ground after those five years, within five weeks, it grows ninety feet tall.
So your journey isn’t gonna be EASY. Its gonna take time.
AND WHEN YOU HAVE A DREAM, PEOPLE ARE GONNA LAUGH. ‘CAUSE THEY DON’T SEE WHAT YOU SEE.
They’ll say, “What is that idiot doing? Watering the ground.”
THEY’RE INCAPABLE OF SEEING A PLANT THAT IS PLANTED INSIDE OF YOU. They have sight, but no vision. Only you have that vision.
So let them laugh! They’ll say, “Be real, be real with it!”
But realism, is often inexcuse to a PESSIMIST. And you can’t let others people’s opinion define your REALITY.
SO LET THEM LAUGH! BUT I GUARANTEE, YOU WILL FIND ONE SUCCESSFUL PERSON IN HISTORY THAT PEOPLE DIDN’T LAUGH AT.
So let them laugh! But i guarantee, you will find one successful person in history that people didn’t laugh at.
Stop worrying about your REPUTATION. ‘Cause your reputation is what people think about you. You care first who you are!
MAKE THE COMMITMENT, WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. STOP THINKING AND JUST DO IT. DO IT FOR YOU, THE REAL YOU. ‘CAUSE YOU DESERVE IT.
You don’t gotta do over in life. SO LIVE YOUR DREAMS.
You don’t got to be GREAT to get STARTED.
BUT YOU GOT TO START IT TO BE GREAT.
What do you guys think? Just remember this simple quote, ” No one could actually say you deserve better. Because the best thing that you deserve, will always be your own choice.”
Happy New Year everyone! 🙂
