As I lie down to ponder over my daily routine, sit down to meditate or take a nice evening stroll(something I should do more regularly😩), how often I catch myself wondering, ‘who I really want to be in order to live a fulfilled life’. What makes me wake up every morning and look forward to making today better than yesterday. What a cliché line of thought right? The funny thing about cliches is that they are often the hard truth.
We all know that a man is driven by what he hopes to achieve or become. My dreams are not just succession of emotions and ideas that occur in the mind during sleep, but my dreams are what makes me, what gives me drive, what makes me strive harder in life. They are who, where and what I want to be days, months, years from today.
In BEING NORMAL IS BORING, you will see some key highlights on why you should denounce being categorized as normal. Why you should own your version of weird, it’s essential to your personal freedom and subsequently to owning the narrative of your own damn life. Keeps you striving to polish that version of you and therefore able to live a fulfilled life.
Believe me, you have a dream(blur, small or too far fetched it might be but you have a dream). Realizing this dream may not sound plausible right now but the moment you lose focus of this dream, then you are done for and can then relax, get a popcorn and enjoy living in some other person’s dream. If you’ve got a mental picture of what your life should be, then you’ve dreams.
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve. By Napoleon Hill
Yes, you’ll be tired and numb and feel a thousand other discouraging emotions along the way but show me a fulfilled person living who hasn’t felt like giving up at some point and I’ll show you a real Cinderella with glass shoes. You don’t give up but take a step back, drink some ice tea and continue moving forward.
Every successful person today started from somewhere and they didn’t stop trying. To get there you need to put in the work, sweat, sometimes stay up late at night to work on it, push hard, focus and keep your damn dreams alive. Baby-steps and you’ll get there in no time.
Earl Nightingale once said “never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it”.
Persevere, keep dreaming, keep striving, stay focused, build on your dreams till it turns reality. You might not be there yet, but you will surely get there….🙏🏾🤞🏾🔥
