Hi, I hope you’re already in the process of having a great morning. If not, start right now.
I over-slept and couldn’t go to the gym today. I might be slightly irritated by my stupidness. But that’s not what I’m writing to you for.
I’ve been trying my best to do things that I’ve been sitting on for quite a long time now. One of them was to do something for animals. The process has been initiated. If we had to give it a percentage, it would stand at .000001 per cent of completion. I have a long, long, way to go. And there have been times when I just want to give up…. especially when things started moving slowly. The frustration just started rising.
If you’ve been going through something similar, I want you to know this.
Don’t give up on your passion. In the words of Frank Kafka,
Follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
Let you passion grow wings. Let it take you to places you’ve never been before. Grow, expand and slow down if you must, but DO NOT let the fire die down. Do not stop.
Don’t let life pass by you without any purpose. I’ve sat on far too many dreams because I couldn’t get myself to take the first step. I had a hundred reasons stopping me. A hundred vague reasons and I was so bogged down by them that I refused to look at the one clear reason about why I wanted to start.
Don’t let ifs, buts and whys stop you, they are all just words. Passion is an emotion.
If you succeed you’ll make a difference. If you fail, you’ll have a story to tell.
Either way, you survive.
