No, it doesn’t mean, that we shouldn’t eat, or that poor kids in Africa are the happiest people in the world. It means to be hungry for your life. Actually, it’s so obvious, but when you know it, but don’t feel, it doesn’t work.
I remember my school days, the last year, when I was working on entering the journalism studies. It was the only one thing I wanted, and I lived with that thought, everyday I was thinking about it and step by step going there – knowing what exams should I take, when should I apply, well, everything. And in no moment I had doubts that I will be accepted. Sometimes I was afraid to fail, but when thinking logically, I knew I will be a journalist. And I became. At least I have my communication specialist diploma in my pocket 🙂
What happened after it? I stopped being hungry. I thought, it’s nice, I have fullfilled my dream, and everything is going to be ok. But surprisingly not. When our dreams come true, we need other ones to go further. If no, we stop moving and start being unhappy. There should always be dynamic in the life.
I’ve had plenty of moments like this during my short life, and that’s why I arrived to this situation, when I’m reading self-motivating book and trying to help myself, ’cause nobody else can do it.
“What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true” – this is the quote from the book. Nobody should wait, until that vision would arrive, or would be received – it’s just our decision, whether we want it, or no. I can be anything we consider good for us.
I know, it sounds so easy, and simple to do. Maybe it could even sound like – this is not for me, is for other, special people, the ones who are made of gold. 🙂 Nice way of thinking, but, sorry, no. It’s not like this. I’ve been thinking like this lots of time, until some years ago I understood that no, that everything is for everyone, we just have to come and take it.
So, my plan for today is – study, learn theory for driving licence, all the time keep me motivated and in the evening create a vision of who I want to be. I’m glad that now my life is like a white paper, starting everything from the point 0, so I can be completely free to imagine whatever I want. I’m arriving to the same L.Tolstoy’s quote: “If you want to be happy – be“. There are no requirements for which people could be happy and which no.
