How does it feel, when you are thrown out when you least wanted to??
I needed to figure it out as to what to be done next…
It s a lonely walk for a guy like me. I know my strengths and also my weakness. At least I am in the process of knowing more about it.
There will be people along the way helping you out, but you wouldn’t be taking help unless convinced, Convinced within ourselves.
Somewhere when I was walking, I did realize one of the most important lessons of my life, if I needed to be successful in what I want to do in life.
I didn’t or still don’t know a sure fire formula for success, but I got to know a sure fire formula for failure; trying to please everybody all the time.
The day I was convinced to learn this lesson, I felt a much happier person than what I was. It is not my fault for things which are not under my control and all I can do is hope for the best. That’s all.
People always call it luck when things go our way, rather than looking at things which were done, in a more sensible way than others.
Well, luck, it must be there, only when intent is there….
I do things wherein I keep asking myself: “Why do I want to do this? Is it just ego, is it going to be embarrassing?”
But like my idols say or my conscious ‘That’s what I am’. I have to be myself and be willing to stand in front of people and do what I believe in, because I am going to regret it if I didn’t.
Not doing what I want to do is worse than doing it, even if it is difficult and painful.
But the question of skills and talent comes into picture. Do we have it in us to do what we want to??
But we need to understand the message which is universal: What we lose in one part of our life, we can sometimes gain in another.
So what we lose in SKILL, we can make up for in WILL.
All we need is sheer determination.
I always get the feeling….
I can’t do it.
I can’t achieve what I want.
And then I keep telling this to myself…
I have worked hard and I am still working hard to achieve what I always dreamt of.
Yeah I been out there walkin’ around, thinkin’. I mean, who am I kiddin’? I am not even in the league of successful people.
I do get inspired and this is something I always wanted to hear when I was down and morose.
This is the inspiration….
“Yeah, that doesn’t matter. Cause I was nobody before. But my mind is not ready to accept the fact that I am nobody….”
But it is true…. I realized it…
I was thinking, it really doesn’t matter if I lose this fight in my life.
It really doesn’t matter if anything happens to me, because all I want to do is go the distance on the path I have chosen.
Very few have traveled or say gone the distance and have been successful. And if I can go that distance and you see if I am still standing at the end of it…. All I would say is
I’m gonna know for the first time in my life, see, I wasn’t just another bum from the neighborhood.
So what are my chances of succeeding??
Look, Einstein flunked out of school, twice.
Beethoven was deaf and Helen Keller was blind.
I think, I have got a good chance. At least I can give it a shot, my best shot.
Well, I guess this was in me, but I never discovered until I bumped into a character called
Rocky Balboa, my idol who’s gonna be there inspiring me whenever I need motivation the most.
As a child, I was fascinated by the boxing aspect of the movie…. Later in my life, I did realize the manner in which we both went about things in a very similar way, in the movie though.
As I watched the movie “Rocky” more and more, I just discovered a lot of things which inspired me to achieve what I wanted.
Anyone who has anger in them in one way or another or any regrets in their lives, like I certainly did, will empathize with the character.
It just gave me an inspiration to get myself out of these stuffy feelings of regret and sadness.
Rocky’s definitely gonna be stronger. At least with me though!!! And I hope it does help others as well.
