Extreme situations don’t change us, they reveal us. But the worst is when we can’t even see what we’ve allowed ourselves to become - or rather, we can’t see what parts of ourselves we’ve allowed to grow out of control. It can happen to anyone.
Why tomorrow starts now?
I just watched a video in TED about ‘Why 30 is not the new 20’. She is Meg Jay, a clinical phsychologist. She told about what most of the 30-something people complain about their life. It was all about identity crisis or how they felt sorry for what they had done for the past 10 years for example. Well, we are on our twenties, right? Why wouldn’t I share this thought.
This is what she said,
At the age 20 is the time to build your life.
- Do something that adds value to who you are, do something that has investment in what you might to be next.
- Start up what you wanna try. Do it right now. Make it count.
- Urban trap is overrrated. Move your ass from your comfort zone!
- Picking your family is consciously choosing who and what you want, not about making it work or killing the time to make it all work out.
I guess it is true. Tomorrow starts now. We are gonna be what we are doing right now. Maybe some of us count on luck, but for me luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Why? When we noticed that we got luck? When we are doing something, and maybe, it didn’t happen as we wish, but, here’s the word, suddenly it just worked out. What if we did nothing? What if we just sat down at home and watched whatever happened outside through the window? There’s no luck. Nothing will happen to us.
So, here’s the idea :
Don’t be defined of what you didn’t know or what you didn’t do.
You are deciding your life right now.
