I do everything I think possible or acceptable to escape from this trap.(Jacques Derrida)
You cannot escape challenges, but you can escape the pain that come with a challenge or failure.
You want to know how?
I reveal it.
But before that, ponder this,
“How shall a man escape from that which is written; How shall he flee from his destiny?” (Ferdowsi)
Ferdowsi, even me I wonder, I really wonder how a man can escape his pre-determined destiny!
Anyway, let us continue, we will come back to wonder latter.
Maybe we hear from Franz Kafka as we proceed.
“Hiding places, there are innumerable, escape is only one, but possibilities of escape, again, are many as hiding places” (Franz Kafka).
From our two guests, Ferdowsi and Franz, we realize that we are supposed to be heading to a certain destination but we often find excuse no to.
Most people have started the journey to their destiny, because the journey is far, they relax to rest, in the process of resting, they find comfort, they camp and in great delusion miss understand the roadside camp for a home, they misplace the resting ground for a destination!
In order for you to back and move out of the roadside camp to your destiny, you need to;
》Execute your plans whether you feel ready or not.
》Persist even more during the doubting moments
》Do it for the sake of love
》Accept the input of others
》Be true to yourself
》Develop useful cultures
Creativity is what helps me escape a lot of my inner demons. (Demi Lovato)
If your talents and passions cannot tell you it is time to start, then I fear if someone else will, if your passions cannot motivate you to take it to the next level, then I am not sure if even the favorable circumstances will.
Do you think someone approached Obama to tell him to run for the American presidency? Do you think the Negroes went searching for Martin Luther King Junior in his comfort zone to come and lead them to freedom?
It is your responsibility to figure out what course is worth your struggle and start the journey toward it whether everybody is seeing it for you or nobody thinks you can make it through that way!
The lord trusted you enough to give you life, He knew you can make the best out of it, He trusted you enough to give you those visions, He knew you can deliver, if the lord trusted you, then, let nobody think less of you.
I wonder why they call it comfort zone, I think suffering zone would have describe it better, I term it surviving zone because at this corner, you are suffering from mental blurriness, you cannot see the inner vision clearly.
This is what I do when I am bored, I take a phone and write something, I take my phone and write something like encouragement, I do it for you, but in the process, it stirs my will power, it light my dull day, that is my creativity, my strategy to boost my energy level, you have got to find yours too.
You have got to do something that you passionately believe for someone, and while doing it, do it to your best, do it with all your creativity, do it as if you are doing it for the lord because in one way or the other, you are doing it for him.
Execute your plans whether you feel ready or not
The greatest lesson that I have learned in life is that nothing work the first time, you have to keep on doing it until you master it.
One thing you will realize when you start acting on your dream is that the saying that the “biggest room in the world is the room for improvement” is true and valid. I have come to realize that this room is even bigger than I ever imagine. I think it is the biggest because it keeps on expanding it seems to have no limit.
Be courageous enough to start and trust the infinite intelligence to lead you to victory!
Lolly Daskal, said that “the world will not reward the dreamer, it rewards those who act on their dream” this is the time to stop dreaming and act on your dreams.
A time come in our life when we have to trust ourselves and dare challenge the world, a time come when we are no longer satisfied by mediocrity and life of nothingness.
This are the days that we choose to accept ourselves as we are and face life as it is with firm resolve to give our best.
Persist even more during the doubting moments
I know, and I understand that the journey wont be easy.
Days will come when you will be rejected by most people including those who are so dear to you.
Understand that a times even your so close friends and even relatives will not believe in your capacity to deliver your promises, to accomplish what you stand for, but nevertheless, stand anyway.
Realize that a time will come when people will not only stop believing in you but they will try to Bring you down, they will roadblock you, but move on anyway, the lord will open a way for you.
It is hard, the journey to a destiny is hard, that is why few ever arrive.
The way to a destiny is challenging, it is hidden, that is why a few will ever discover.
Do it for the sake of love
I say this and I emphasize because I know its importance. I know that life takes a new turn when you find who you love and be faithful to her! This is true to love story as it is true to life story.
Loving unconditionally is the only way to develop and sustain healthy, happy and enjoyable relationship.
The constitution of love is made up of only one phrase ” I love you unconditionally” .
Loving unconditionally means that you will be there for the one who you love during the happy moments and fall even closer during the doubting and challenging moments.
You have got to love your talent with all your being, you have got to love it unconditionally. I mean, you have got to fall for it even closer during the hard times.
This all you do by being faithful, and you became faithful by doing it even when it is not profitable.
It was not profitable for Nelson Mandela when he was sleeping in a floor in the cells, It was not profitable for Steve Jop to start again from zero to develop the Microsoft, but they had to protect their love, you gotta protect yours too.
Accept the input of others
When you start, no one will be there to assist you, even me I cannot support a project that I do not see commitment, but as you persist, people will notice you and dive in to assist you.
In life, you will always have people who are so dear to you, people whose love for you is true and honest, this are the people who have you in their hearts.
This people might not be calling you now and then, they may just be observing you from a distant, they may just be thinking about you silently.
You know this people during your hard times and your successful days.
At your hard days, they will be there to comfort and encourage you.
When you start facing the realities of life in your pursuit of meaning in life, this people will come in silently, take a position in a silent place close to you and push you up silently.
Without your notice, they hold your hand, they do not show up, they do it in their own way to see that you succeed without you even noticing.
you have to start your journey today for you to know your true friends, you have to dive in an fight the enemy of poverty so that you know who will come for your rescue.
You see, someone will come for your aid and in the meantime, they became your husband or the future mother of your children, someone will come for your rescue and in the meanwhile, they become your business associates. So that looking around in the future, you realize that you are surrounded by the right people.
Be true to yourself
You have your own fears and worries. You are good at somethings and poor on others. Just like all human,
you have had a portion of failures and victories in life.
That is normal, you do not win always, at times, you fail, rise up, dust off and move on,
Worst still, you fail almost always, that is normal too, some of us belong to that category but we are bouncing back daily, and that is what makes the drama, and the drama is what we are being payed for, you know people are willing to pay to watch the drama.
Many things are funny in life, the struggles of life are funny, in fact they are a real drama.
What make me going in life of late, is my ability to make fun of my struggles, to laugh at them as they unfold.
You neutralize the pain of failure by laughing at them, by knowing that “this life wont last forever,” by knowing that everything in this world is a drama that will end soon, yeah! that is it, in few years, less than 2 centuries, you and your drama will be gone, so? do not worry about the things that are passing.
Develop useful cultures
Wow! more than 1700 words today! you have read allot, imagine if you consume that amount of positive words everyday, your life will take a new turn in less than one month!
When I say that I rather write than watch, many won’t believe me. From a dream, I have turn writing to a hobby, I think it is helpful.
If you develop reading as a culture, you develop something magnificently useful to your life, it was the other day that I spend the all day subscribing to high performance blogs, checking into my email, I do not regret. I have drastically changed my life by taking that initiative!
you gotta initiate something useful into your life and pursue it until it is an addiction, when you become addicted to your talent, you become addicted to success.
I do not smoke, not because I am a good boy but because I am addicted to something else here. We all have the urge to identify with something, we better Identify will that which is helpful, we are not done until we find something to gravitate to, we better gravitate to a hobby that can be helpful to us as well as the few who are close to us.
