One day you will going down a new path, unwary of the missteps, holes or turns that awaits you ahead. You won’t understand why everyone keeps saying you should follow your dreams because at that very moment, clarity will have forsaken you. The venture you will have taken will be a long short, but then again the rewards are what softens the risk.
every feeling, every tear, every rejection will remind you of an easier option you could have taken, an easier place you could have stayed, an easy position you could have kept. you will be reminded you had most things working for you, yet you chose to etch your own path, you had to venture into the unknown. This are just a few of the changes you will dread on your new journey towards a dream you only can describe. be strong if you see it in your heart, you can make it, you can get it.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt
You will know that sitting and thinking about tomorrow will make you cold, a busy brain steals warmth from inactive hands and feet, all your days you’ve been on the move, now live wants you to sit and plan, you can’t keep guessing, you have to start planing, that’s the only way you can estimate or forecast the results of what you doing today.
You will accept a commission that has been turned down by all others in your field, because after all you are not on the same path with them. The four walls to your office or room will start constrict and squeeze you inside, you wont be breathing easy and your friends and family will notice, the most important thing is to keep the focus on the goal, what you wish to accomplish is your ultimate focus, forget what you are going through, just make sure you are upright, head high and you earning progress not just movements.
Always remember your present state, of course, is your fault. If for one moment you doing it for someone else or to earn acceptance from someone then you are lost, I will advise you to stop because you wont be able to handle the disappointment that come with failure. Learn to find success for yourself, everyone is seeking theirs, and if you fail for yourself you learn, if you fail for others you lose twice. Failure is never an opposite to success, its part of your success, its part of your growth.
You will face discomfort which will not, either be a self pitying morass of abject failure, but more the arctic doldrums between the high elation of a recent win in your presentation and the distant worry that the results might be too far for reach to warrant any excitement. Every triumph will have a sharp edged downside, that’s how great wins are built, great wins attract great responsibilities; you have to keep up.\
Long-shots are uncomfortable and gut wrenching, but so great are the returns that you just keep on shooting those long ones hoping for the best. You get good at it by making myriad of them without tiring or regrets, you lose you win, at the end it gets easier and that’s the only venture you will get into. This may be a new course you’ve decided to take, a new business you’ve ventured into or a change in a profession that only you understands the end result.
The long-shots will be relationships you will decide to invest in against everyone’s expectations of you, ideas you will want to develop that no one will see them the way you do, or people you will give a chance that others will think they have no chance. The most important thing is always know what you want, plan for it and always know the results you want from it. Be good at risk management, research and preparations, remember long-shots are different from overreach, one requires planning, the other is a gamble.
Start a business, go back to school, change your job or leave that person though you don’t know how next month will be, the most important thing is the conviction of what you want, the urge to achieve something beautiful or the build towards the shape of your future.
Soar up and be proud of it, you are not meant to remain where you are…
