When it’s not on your doorstep

When it’s not on your doorstep

What do you do?

Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.

I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.

At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…

Because they don’t want to travel.

Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?

I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you

How far are you willing to go?

You can’t know

You can’t know if your going to enjoy an experience until you experience it.

Seth Godin

You can’t know

And we talk ourselves out of doing things we think we won’t enjoy, yet we dont truly know we wouldn’t until we tried

Some of my best experiences were doing things I didn’t want to do

Some of my best achievements I almost talked myself out of doing

Why because of some little voice in our heads?

Just try something new

You might love it, you might not

Who knows

Caged Bird

Fall or fly
You gotta take the leap
Or you’ll die

You can’t remain in the cage
You’ll die of old age before you even come of age
This is the stage of life where you need to break down the cage
Otherwise you’ll become agitated, angry filled with rage and regret
You’ll never be able to forget the time when you could of taken the leap
But instead you took a peep over the edge and backed back into the cage

Fall or fly
You gotta take the leap
Or you’ll die

Don’t be too blind to see
Your limits are in the mind
The cage is imaginary
You can be free

You just have to risk the fall
So you can fly

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Veronica Shoffstall

No one is responsible for your happiness,
Nobody
And your not responsible for anyone else’s

No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take

Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,

Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens

It’s all on you.

We’re not the same

On a world map Greenland and Africa look the same,

But in reality Africa is 14x bigger than Greenland…

From a far we look very similar to other people, but reality is that we’re all very very different.

We all have different skills, personalities, ambitions, problems

We’re all different but a common trend is people following trends trying to look, be, do the same as others

But the world doesn’t need you to be like everyone else

In needs you to be different

It needs you to be you

Embrace your differences, be unique where you can, if you have a unique skill then work on it

Just stop trying to be the same
