1) Don’t Wait, Act Now
We spend much of our lives by waiting for something we have always wanted such as a new car, an apartment or a much-anticipated promotion, even a new life. We think too much on “What if I did that; What if I did this”, and in the end, we won’t do a damn good thing and eventually wither off.
Waited this long,
Much happiness to come along
I remember the last time, I waited for almost 3 months before buying a bike and it was happy when I got it, but in the process I lost many precious moments thinking of the mythical future. Alas,We all wait. But what is the point of waiting about the future? We lose a big time in the present, losing our present happiness, losing our health and many more. And if our present is not worthwhile, who knows; We won’t be even having a future.
Many people wait throughout their whole lives for the chance to be good in their own fashion– Friedrich Nietzsche
2) Expect Nothing; You will never be disappointed
We are humans. We use our sixth sense to an extraordinary level, to a state that we are always looking out for new horizons.
All things cannot be done by all
Many empires may rise and fall
Our faith may not stall
A final call meant for all
So be it, Join the fall
In fact this is good for our growth. But most of us take it the opposite way, such that once we meet a failure, a roadblock; we try to escape or take a detour. It is always better to do what you do the best and the rewards will automatically follow. When Nikos Kazantzakis was asked about freedom,
He simply said: “I expect nothing, I fear no one, I’m free.”
3) Don’t Lose Hope, Failure is inevitable
We always try to give our best output, but it really hurts when our expectations doesn’t correlate with reality and it really hurts bad.
One has to act, one has to think
One has to love, one has to hate
One has to learn, one has to flare
Let us be one, as one is all
Amplify our soul, until there be no foul
It hurts so bad, that we feel like it’s the end of road. For some it may be. And you have to remember this : “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Micheal Jordan
4) Who ever you are; Be Yourself
Even if you are the odd man out, Be Yourself.
Many will deviate, many will drop
But one must reason, one must consider
For all it takes; is to be yourself
As the saying; Many of us think that The grass is always greener on the other side. For most of the reasons, it is not true. Each task requires a specific skill and to meet that, we have to go through a lot of hardships. For many, they are in the process of a discovery, a discovery of a series of failure, so intense, that whom so ever scales that length, becomes a LEGEND.
Let this be done, let alone rise
Let alone withstand, this happy demise
It is the person who goes through life’s path, a path that is charred, a path that will test your limits, makes you depressed, makes you wanting for more even if it hurts, a walk that will last a lifetime,
that it gives you everything you need, all for a single cause; To make you that great being whom you are now.
See Everything, Be Nothing
