Inspiration and motivation is like a health supplement. You sometimes need it to keep on going.
I've been doing a lot of observing and self-reflection of late. I look at the successful people around me and I analyse. What is it that keeps them going? What makes them stand out from the rest? What makes them great at doing what they do?
An amazing amount of hard work, perseverance, sacrifices and CONSISTENCY.
I personally feel that successful people are consistent people. Those "rilek jack" sort are the kind that prefers to stay in their comfort zone. Yes, it is fun to be staying in an environment that you're familiar with. But to me, life is about change, a constant development towards something (hopefully) greater.
Some people adapt better to changes, while some people get scared at the thought of something different. How we manage it determines how successful the outcome of the change is.
I have to admit that I have been pretty comfortable with my life and career so far. However, in order for me to progress and achieve more amazing things, I need some form of change. A new challenge perhaps. I need to step out of my comfort zone, into that magic zone. It might or might not work out and I'm ready.
The husband and I are dreamers. That's why I think that we're made for each other. We have crazy dreams that only we can understand. The kind where you share with conventional linear thinking people and they'll go like, "RIGHTTTT." Hey, it's ok to dream you know. But how many of us are taught to seriously chase our dreams and live it? Very few.
I came across this video on Facebook and I felt it was so apt at this point in my life right now.
Good things must share, right? So please spare 7 minutes of your life to watch this and REFLECT. :)
Inspiring, right? ;)
Today, I dare myself to commit to this change that I will embark. I want to chase my dreams and not look back in regret. Life is too short to be afraid of the unknown.
Good luck and go chase that dream.
Be in that MAGIC ZONE. :)
