The example you set
In 480bc 300 Spartans and some allies marched to Thermopylae to battle 2million persians.
They knew they could never win, they went to die so the spartans could rally their full army
But not only that they went to give the rest of the army courage
When 300 spartans could cause all that damage imagine what 10,000 could do.
They led by example to inspire the nation to win the war.
We might not always win at first but our actions can inspire others (or even ourselves) to later take action and win
Walk on road, hm?
Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later…get squish just like grape.
Or as Yoda says, Do or do not there is no try
It doesn’t matter what we do in life, we just need to commit to it
I’ll try, or I’ll guess I’ll give it ago, yeah maybe… whatever it is that your not fully committed to isn’t worth attempting as it’s just a waste of precious time
I’ll try and quit smoking, I’ll give that diet ago,
You already know after a couple of meals your not going to stick at it
This is true for everything in life, left or right, just make a decision and get out of the road
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
Why you looking to others for inspiration, look around everyone has their head to the ground
Why would you wait for someone to step up to the plate, just to inspire you to do something
When everyone else is waiting for something to inspire them, we’re trapped in a circle of everyone passing responsibility on to everyone else
Don’t wait for inspiration just create something and as a side effect you create inspiration, in yourself and others
