Start to live -> Stop trying to survive
Achieve a goal
Step one, open your eyes. Step two, crawl. Step three, walk. Step four, run.
Easy right? No. I just told you the checkpoints, I never really told you how many times you would fall or how many times you will cry. I also never told you how great it would be once you conquer these problems, and that immense joy that you achieved by overcoming the struggles in your mind. Most people see only success, but you know that there is more to success than meets the eye. You know the struggle will be real, and you’re more than ready to tackle it head on, you just need to be pointed in the right direction.
It just happens…
As you make your way through life you tend to do what your role model does. This can be your Father, Mother, Kanye West, The Pope, and so on. But following our role models clouds us as to what we want to do in life. Not all of us want the fame, the stress to deal with the public, or the responsibility of paying the bills. We just want… to live.
Some of us will go to college, some will drop out, some won’t go, some won’t even finish high school. For some of us who finish college we come out with no guarantee of our career or if we will like our career. For some of us in college we switch our field of study because it isn’t what we signed up for. For those who didn’t go to college, we are told there’s some hope. For those who drop out, we are told there’s almost no hope.
So is that it?
Nah, I don’t know about you but I wasn’t born to be tied to a destiny that someone made for me. If I fail or succeed, it will be my choice and I will enjoy every moment doing what I like.
So how do I achieve this?
Everyone tells you to follow your passion, but how do you make it a career out of it? are there shortcuts? You telling me to follow my passion is like telling me to chase that “thing”. It means nothing other than pretty words. You followed your passion, but my passion is different how do I know it will make me money? To be honest, I don’t know. I do know however that there are people out there in life who have become successful pursuing their passion and if you set your mind to it, you will make it.

The ending is generic, but there’s a reason for that. I will be adding more content in the future and you will see why the ending is so… simple. Have a good one!
