You are inspired by people either on the internet or in person. They inspire you because they are doing things that you dream about. And when you look at the timeline, they are just ahead of you by that much.
It is like if you stay on your path for a little longer you would reach there.
Let’s say you are a developer who is starting out today. You would have some goals, some inspiration. And whatever you want to be, look for the people who are working in that position. Because they are ahead of you in life (not in terms of success but in terms of experience).
Now I’m telling you, if you stay on your path with the same passion that you have today, you would reach there far quicker than the person you are looking up to right now.
This is certain.
You can see your future.
But the big question is – Is It Really What You Want?
You know, someone told me very early in my career… someone who I look up to that always be super careful what you wish for because wishes do come true.
I’m not just talking about wishful thinking I’m talking about something that burns a fire in you. The fire that doesn’t let you sleep. The desire for something that makes you work towards it day and night non-stop.
If it doesn’t happen with you then you are not doing it right or you are content with where you are and what you have (and I want to make it very clear that there is nothing wrong with being content).
But once you start to feel that kick to do more, to not rest until you have reached the mark… it becomes a surety.
It is like the entire universe is working for you. In reality, the universe is the same. It is that your focus is so strong that you see what others do not see. You find loopholes and cracks clearly that others can’t. It’s like the matrix.
In fact, it is one of the principles in the famous book Think & Grow Rich.
I got a bit off track here.
So all I am asking you is to understand the depth of what I’m trying to say.
We oftentimes end up wishing for something that we think we want. But once we get that, we find ourselves in a sad place. Then we wish for something else and the cycle just goes on and on.
This is a vicious cycle. Your power has become a curse for you.
You don’t just go out there and get it, there are hardships involved, the decisions that you make in your life to make that happen.
Every time, you wish for something more, be prepared for the burn. It will happen. That is the reason why most people compromise and become content. But the ones who don’t stop at anything – dreams do come true.
Just felt like letting it out.
Until next time.
