How Powerful and capable Do You Think You Are? Well, If the past 18 months have taught me anything it’s the following: We as human beings are more powerful and capable than we think. We can achieve anything we put our minds to.
ROLL BACK to some time in 2012 where I had this dream of traveling. I believed. I took action. I accomplished.
And indeed travel will remain a big portion of my life for years to come. That’s the plan anyways.
ROLL BACK to a few months ago where I had these thoughts of creating something bigger than myself and making a real positive impact in the world.
I believed, I took action and….
Well I’ve taken action. That’s where I’m at. Where will this journey take me? I have no clue.
What will the final product look like? Again, I have no clue. And if I’m honest, I don’t think there will ever be a ‘final product’, just something that’s there at any given time, that will morph into something else in the future, which will in turn morph into something else.
Obviously it’s not going to morph on its own, my direct input and influence will cause the morphing, but I think you understand what I’m getting at.
The important thing to remember here is that taking action is essential and that mere step(s) is a powerful thing. And besides this is a journey. It’s a marathon, not a race and there is something beautiful about there not being a destination.
I got lost in my thoughts there for a while, lets return to reality…
And then ROLL BACK to a few weeks ago where I had an article featured on the Daily Zen. It really made me hugely proud. Am I a writer? Have I written a book? No and no!
I studied Business for goodness sakes. If you had asked me a few months ago whether I would have written an article for the Daily Zen that would be featured on their site, I would probably have laughed.
However, the purpose of this article is not to brag about my accomplishments. It is to prove a point. It is to show, and inspire you, and re-enforce a simple truth, that we as humans are more powerful and capable than we think.
We can achieve and do anything we want in this life.
DESPITE what we have done in the past.
DESPITE people telling you that you have to pick a career and stick to it.
DESPITE what you studied.
DESPITE your current financial situation.
DESPITE people telling you that work is work and it’s not suppose to be fun.
YOU CAN be a writer, a DJ, start your own business, run a half marathon, skydive, (if you want to do this, I personally am a little scared, but there’s something I would like to do before I die), be a CEO of a big business, travel the world, say hi to that random person…
YOU CAN…do absolutely anything you want to, despite all the despites, despite everything.
The only thing standing in your way is, one: your mind, and two: time. We have limited time in which to pursue things we want to pursue, pursue the things we love.
So if we have limited time on this earth, then why aren’t we all doing more things we want to do, more things we love, on a regular basis.
I refer back to your mind. If your mind is playing tricks on you and if fears are getting In the way, give this post a read.
AND always remember. You are more POWERFUL and CAPABLE than you think. So, what are you waiting for?
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. What do you really want to do, DESPITE everything?
