When we set out in life, our parents tell us that we can become anything we want. Your parents are right, and the truth is that you can become anything you set your mind to. The key ingredient, other than knowing what you want, is to have a burning desire for it’s achievement. In academics, I worked very hard to achieve good grades by having all of my assignments turned in on time, and all of the assigned readings completed. Truth is that I had a breakdown when my Dad passed away, and I lost the passion.
While reflecting on my life, I began to ‘wake up’ to the fact that for the past several years I have been just going through the motions like a zombie. I hadn’t found my passion, as it had been hiding in a far corner of my mind just waiting for me to tap into it. Sometimes we have to take ourselves through the hardships we experience by the bad choices we have made in order to learn how to become better people. Sometimes those choices we made can be the most humbling of times. Hardships can get us to concentrate more, mostly because the pain of sitting in our own mess is more painful than change itself.
No person likes change because it takes us out of our comfort zone. But in order to grow as a person, and lead a more richer and fuller life, we need to take inventory and count the cost of what it will take to accomplish what it is that we set our minds to.
An old analogy comes to mind when we talk about achieving the things you so desire: When you decide succeeding is as important as breathing air, it is then that you become successful. So whatever goal you have in mind, work to organize your life in such a way that you can achieve what you set your mind to. Make sure you have the key ingredient of passion, know why you are going after what you want, and everything else becomes much more clear. Your decisions will improve when you find it. So when you do, let me know (:
