These past days, I've been thinking about all the possibilities that awaits me. It seems everyday that the decisions I make today and so forth on, will basically define whether or not I'm successful in the future or will fail and lose everything. Not saying that it shouldn't be that way, but I should be able to take risks without feeling so naive about the downsides; If that even makes sense! Ultimately, I want to be able feel confident in all the moves I take.
In some way, I've found that's impossible. Some of the greatest moves that one make take in his/her life, don't seem like the right one to take for sometime. Not until the upsides begin to show, and the downsides become less apparent to affect the outcome. With that realization, I think it's wise for me to say that I've been too conservative and not bold enough. I've reached a certain point in this journey to where I have much to lose, but much more to gain. And that's great to say!
When you see what awaits for you in the future, nothing can be a greater motivation than the possibilities that you saw. Everything that has motivated you in the past, no longer exist because you progressed. You are now at the next stage, with bigger goals, a larger mission. Plus, a longer journey to travel. With success comes greater responsibilities and your game must match up with the times. If not, you won't be able to compete and fail by trying to walk with your laces untied.
Like the great Mahatma Gandhi said, “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
I believe myself to be the master of lifestyle and love and that is what I will become.
