My day is over
If my 2011 is about self discovery, I am hoping for a passionate 2012. I know it has been three months since the year started but I know, it has never been too late to start planning something. Honestly, I had been a bit frustrated since all my plans for this year didn’t work out. I had plan A, B and C that I wish I can pursue but unfortunately, NOTHING worked out and after three months, nothing new is happening in my life and I am so scared to get out of my newly built comfort zone. I am still scared now. But, don’t get me wrong. I don’t intend to do some drastic change with my lifestyle or anything that can surprise anyone from my circle. Self conditioning maybe the right term for this.
What do I intend to condition in myself?
1. On how I perceive failure.
Failure is one of the things that scare everyone of us to do something different. We are scared that we might fail and we might not get the positive result that we wish for. However, we must learn that once we fail, there is an additional experience that we can share the world. It helps us grow into a better person. Some say, the more failure you experienced, the more chances for you to succeed.
2. On how I perceive Fear.
Fear is the single most element that keeps anyone from succeeding. Because of it, we tend to make a number of excuses not to make a single step. This is one thing that we should get rid off and we should know the signs that we are already scared rather than feed our excuses and do nothing.
3. Never get tired of planning and creating your goal.
Be goal oriented. A day with a goal is very important to get things done. Whether it be a simple goal about your work, about your personal life or any aspect as long as something worth while is done everyday.
4. Read, Explore and Research more.
Some people say, we are all the same except with one thing. The books or articles that we read and eventually influence us in any way. They also say, in five years, we will become the person that we admire a lot today. With that, we should look for a role model or people that we can look forward to. Get up and never be lazy to discover new things in life. Read more and never be complacent with your life even if you have the best life in the world. As per Steve Jobs, stay foolish and stay hungry. From then, it can trigger your start button for new discoveries.
5. Look back and evaluate.
Do some contemplation on how your life did for the past day, week, months or years which ever is comfortable for you. It can help you track how far did you go and what are the things you haven’t done and can help you plan for your next goal.
However, never forget that no one gets successful over night. It needs hard work and too much guts and courage to face them. Let’s face them together and in the next years and months, we can say that we had been different from who we used to be. Let’s do it with one single step at a time. No need to rush. Everyday is a new day and be ready for a new adventure each and every single day.
PS: I had this drive to write something about passion because of this inspirational blog that I just subscribed. The Wake up Cloud is my inspiration and I am planning to read everything single post of Henri Juntilla. I encourage you read his blog as well to get more tips on how to live a passionate life. Reading his blog is time well spent! ~!~
To sum it up, BLOGGING is not about BRAGGING, its about speaking up and extending yourself to your readers. For me, it is about inspiring, motivating and encouraging everyone to do things they are passionate about. Blogging is where you could see freedom is. Freedom to speak up, freedom to tell your own story, freedom to explore new things, freedom to know new people and freedom to know yourself more.
