We are afraid to act upon opportunities because we are uncertain; we are blinded of the path ahead. Most of us would prefer the security of our already-proven static routines. Why?? -They bring us financial support, and keep our families situated. We would rather stay with what we know, than risk that for something that may seem like just a dream. There’s always a why related with everything you do and 1000’s of impossibilities as if “why should I write when I know there are uncountable numbers of motivational life blogs to go for “why should I keep late nights when everyone’s sleep is valuable?” or “why would I risk something if there’s no chance of success??” Perhaps you can answer it better than me—“JUST FOR YOURSELF”.I can make an excuse not to write because I’ve never gained a degree from any university, I can fear highly qualified literates when I’m just a tenderfoot amongst many experienced professionals. But I owe to write –“write even if one organism in the whole Milky Way is ready to read”, “write because nothing more than it gives me peace and I’ll do what I love because nothing more than that satiates my soul.” And I’m ready to take this risk, if not world’s best then at least I’ll be more than those who never tried because I know that we have to venture outside our boundaries and that’s what life’s all about.
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Helen Keller
And when it comes to experimenting I won’t miss the chance to quote about my favorite scientist Sir Nikola Tesla–He had a great deal of working upon things, unscrewing and making them go another way round all night long. Moreover, he was so much indulged in his work that he claimed to sleep just 2 – 3 hours a day. He even exhibited classic signs of manic creativity resultative of his experiments. (I’m not saying to be a maniac but just giving you a gist of hunger in him.)
~ Nikola Tesla And when asked Einstein about what it means to be the greatest genius in the world, he said “I don’t know you’ll have to ask Nikola Tesla”
Challenge It: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy,” ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I wanna ask if given you a choice of a roller coaster ride which would prefer one which takes much a straight path and returns back or one which takes you much higher up, turns at greatest speeds brings you down to take you higher up…Same goes for life. You won’t ever enjoy until it’s thrilling, adventurous (dangerous) full of swags and shallows, without all this life would be mundane and tasteless. Well at this point I would sound mundane who’s telling to take up challenges when you already are much in trouble and I should’ve been talking about-“X-ways to face challenges”…(well just to tell you I’m not ).You know there are days when we need to challenge our own limits and there will be days when we just want to be quiet and at peace and the sudden cruel life comes up to you and says you need to fight now-Go and fight it no matter how bad it gets, even if you lose it all, you’ll in a manner discover yourself.
For me, I too can say- Life’s cruel, it’s bad, uneasy, deceiving, and all adjectives that you can think to describe of. But at the end, I would just say – “It will change”. But if really think you’re being stressed then- either be bogged down by it or dust yourself off, giggle and move on choice is all yours and remember you have freedom of choice but not of its consequences.
