Signs are no good if you dont follow them
If your looking for a sign the chances are you’ll find one because your seeking it,
Kind of like when you just get a new car and everyone seems to be driving the same one as you.
For a short moment in time I wanted to learn how to street dance (I think step up had just come out or something)
I remember saying if I see a sign I’ll join a club or something.
The very next day I saw a sign, it had probably been there for years but I wasn’t looking for it then
But I didn’t join I probably went home and played GTA or something
We’ve probably ask for and seen loads of signs in our lifetimes but we ignore them or don’t follow through.
Asking for a sign is probably just another form of procrastination,
Yeah I’ll do it if…
If we really wanted to do something we wouldn’t need to wait for a sign.
We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,
We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives
We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind
But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much
Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.
Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you
The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them
2020 isn’t over yet
So don’t give up on it.
Yeah things haven’t gone your way
A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing
But they dont blame it on the year
And they don’t just throw in the towel
It’s not been the best year for anyone
Yet there is still time to make a better landing
Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
No one is responsible for your happiness,
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.
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
