When you don’t feel like it
Is when you need to do it the most.
When you have now motivation, or inspiration and you just wanna be curled up on the sofa.
That’s when you need to just get up and do something.
Anything, it doesn’t matter what, because that something will lead to something else.
To quote nike, just do it
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
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
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.
