My life was like a paddle-less boat up until the summers of 2014, when I decided to take the charge of it and row it upstream. Going against the current of the stream, challenging the strength of the oceanic waves was not all that easy. I had to be determined that I would win over the sea and successfully reach the shores of the enormous ocean that was all set to drench me with the surface waves powered with the strength of harshly blowing sea winds.
Writing is not an easy job. It’s a journey to self-realization. It’s a task of churning your inner self and then extracting out the creative juices to paint the canvas of your imagination with vibrantly colorful and vivid pictures. It’s just like rowing your boat against the water current, keeping your head high, facing criticism and rejections but not letting your spirit die.
The obstacles that we face in our day to day life are nothing but mere reflections of the negativity that twirls around us all the time. If we take the hurdles of life as a challenge and try to keep ourselves motivated no matter what the situation is, these hurdles will only become our guiding path leading us to that ultimate destination that we always dreamed of.
This rule applies to all of us. It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is – who you aspire to be. Whether you want to become a successful entrepreneur, a great artist, an award winning musician, or a bestselling author, you have to keep challenging the obstacles hindering your path to success, and one day you will realize your dreams. That day, you set a new goal and again start your journey of achieving it.
Exploit your abilities, flaunt your skills. You are not just a cog in a wheel but much more than that. Take time out to ponder upon your unfulfilled dreams, dreams that you cherished all through your life but failed to achieve. Then, question your inner self, what have you done to make it happen. Have you given your best to the most cherished dream of your life? If not, now, it’s time – live it up.
That doesn’t mean that you stop going out and stop socializing. Live your life to the fullest. Do what you want but don’t forget the purpose of your life. Dig out the reason of your existence. Try to connect yourself with it, and life would be a pleasant ride for you. You will reach a stage where you won’t feel frustrated, helpless, stricken by the boredom but feel satisfied, motivated, and enriched, A state where you have a purpose in life, you have a goal to achieve, and you have a dream to enliven.
