All your life you have been different or have you ? Well, there are 7 billion people in the world and only you look like you do, only you have that finger print you do… That’s different !!
What if we looked at it in a different way, how many people do you know went to school, went to college or university got a typical job that pays the bills and gets us the 25 year mortgage for the 3 or 4 bedroom house and have 2 or 3 kids. I think you get the picture and is it sounding familiar.
Who actually says we have to live our life this way, is it our parents, is it the media or government wanting us to live this way so we reinvest all our taxes back into the country.
What if we did things differently, what if we thought different and went against what everyone wants us to believe.
What if we educated our kids ourselves and taught them life skills that we don’t start learning until we break away from typical education. What if we pursued jobs, careers or passions that we were born to do rather than been crushed by the decisions of career advisor’s, parents or friends close to us saying, you won’t be able to do that.
I remember so clearly sat at school, I remember the room and the way it smelt, sitting with the careers advisor she asked what I really wanted to do when I leave school….. I remember having a clear vision of what I really wanted to do.
The reason I had that crystal clear vision of what I wanted to do, I would sit at my parents dining table constantly drawing pictures of what the future would look like for me
So I sat next to the careers advisor and told her what I wanted. She said I should start from somewhere else because “Matt your grades that you are predicted WILL NOT get you to where you want to be” so why dont you think of doing something different. Your good at sports so what about a sports coach” with me being shy and not one for speaking out I went with that.
These are the situations or life events that shape us, because now I think I really want to prove to myself I can do what I want and I will get to where I want to be.
It’s never to late to achieve what you want, having a dream is important, taking action to make the vision (dream) happen is even more important. Only recently I was negatively called a dreamer….guess what I’m so glad they said that because it fires me up so much, thank you.
The only person that is stopping you right now is you. Yes, your thinking will have been influenced by many people telling you, you can’t. But it’s your mind that will move you, it’s your mind that will drag you towards what you really want to start…. I’m not expecting you to jump up out your chair and get to work, all I’m wanting you to do is have that single thought of “I can do this”… Because you really can do whatever you want.
By the way, if you were wondering what my dream was and still is, I wanted to own a private spa/health club.
