As human beings, we all have dreams.
We all have a vision in our head we play over and over like our favorite movie scene.
Sadly, not everyone reaches their dreams. Sad sad indeed.
“Every morning you have two choices: Continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.”
Which do you do?
Our most valuable currency: Time.
When we’re born, we’re all given a wallet with a very specific number of seconds inside.
For the most part, we all have the same number of seconds in each day. And it is US who chooses where each and every one of those seconds will be spent.
Now, am I crazy, or does it seem like fewer and fewer people are realizing this? Are there only a few us left who know what happens when we’ve spent all our seconds? There’s no more. No loans or handouts.
We have to spend wisely.
But there are far too many people we’ve all seen who have dreams, but instead of spending their time chasing those dreams, they’d rather spend it watching TV, taking a nap, playing games, going to the club…How can people just do that? If you have a goal, the only person that can stop you from reaching it, is you.
I just love reading inspiring stories about successful people who were born at the bottom but came out on top. Who were given a weak hand yet still came out winning. Or as Drake said, “Started from the bottom now we’re here.” 😉
A few of my favs:
- Conor McGregor
Conor always held a passion for fighting. As a young adult, he ended up a plumber. One rainy day, as he sat in his car in the parking lot, he had an epiphany. Right then, he drove home to his parent’s, quit his job, and began training twice daily. He landed on the streets, but today, he’s worth millions and is one of the best in the UFC.
- Robert Downey Jr.
Robert was born into an unfortunate environment. By 8, he was addicted to drugs. His addiction cost him relationships and landed him in jail several times, where he had terrible things happen to him. Now, he’s one of the highest paid actors in the world.
Marshall Mathers’ Dad left him by 3. He was raised by a drug-addicted, abusive mother and got beat up in school. As a young adult, he put his everything into two albums that flopped. Unable to support his wife and child, he became severely depressed and attempted suicide. Today, he’s known by man as the Greatest Rapper Alive.
Each of these people struggled. They risked it all to reach their dreams. They beat the odds when the world was against them, and did what everyone said they couldn’t.
If they could, then so can you. Spend your time wisely, believe, and don’t give up.
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
