No, I’m not advertising for Nike’s new trendy sneaker but this is a push for those who stand still when the signs turn green…
Haven’t we all had moments of these? Hesitations, fear of failure, the first step phobia, having a lot in mind but don’t know how to apply it, seeking courage & motivation, having a cold feet?!! Even the most successful people went through moments like these, some of them broke through that phase and just hit the road, some stood still thinking what to do, some didn’t believe in themselves good enough and some just neglected the whole thing and some didn’t even have the will to stick to some thought of his/her own and choose to follow the crowd stand when they stand, run the way the crowd runs saying in their comfort zone safe and numb. Denial is the sneaky evil that can take all over you, keeping you in your bubble prison. Thinking you are gonna rock the world but you are only waiting for the right time. Even though those people who always have the guts to dive in and take the risk, sometimes they back off, get haunted by fear, fear of making mistakes, fear of the future, fear of consciousness. As youth we have so many trapped thought hope dreams ideas and ENERGEY it almost keeps kick boxing us from inside out to see the light, yes life is tough its never that easy there are some common fatal mistakes that we do and in order to solve them we have to underline them, analyze them, and try to find a suitable solution. First let’s look at the main common traps we get ourselves into.
-- The yellow lamp trick.
I mean it’s that bright thought that comes out no where with the most exciting idea; actually some people get tricked by the brightness of the idea and skip the possibilities and the requirements to make it come to live. skipping the logical thinking of HOW to get it done, WHAT can and cant be done, WHEN is the right time to do it, WHERE can you start, WHO can help you. All these questions help you to take it to the next level. But commonly we get excited about the first rush of the thought and don’t think about how to apply it which leads to the second mistake.
-Smiling in sarcasm.
Believing less in yourself, or in circumstances that are ahead. Circumstances never end and if you don’t believe in yourself a little bit then you’ll never achieve anything in this life. so many brilliant people I know had and have brilliant ideas but sadly they shrug their shoulders and smile in sarcasm thinking its on a daydream and in real life you only have to do what is usually to be done not how they want it to be done.
-- Jumping before leaning
The sweetness of the moment, getting started right away without taking good time to plan and to calculate how and when or who, and the chances of failing or succeeding, I know its a matter of god’s willing but without taking the chances of failing and succeeding into consideration, it will turn out like it did to sooo many youth, I know, you know and that it will turn like that epic story we all heard of, some friends gathered together to make some cool project, and as soon as they begin, everything crashes down, they fail like no one else have and just sit and wonder why in the world did that happen? why are we always followed by bad luck, the mistake here was that they found a good project, they had they money, they had the place and they had their hungry will, but they just jumped in without leaning and looking what’s in there. they didn’t know anything about the project they started, no experience, I mean they didn’t ask someone in the field and take his/her opinion about how to start and how to plan it right so it can go on even if the going got tough.
-- Planning too much.
Nothing works without a good plan, yeah I’ve just mentioned it earlier, but I’ve been suffering myself from this one, I get too excited, I plan and I plan, and I take it further until the small little plan I could start achieving become a high-rise building (not a sand-castle, u know the technology changed even the metaphor in our language) so I find myself not capable of doing anything, it got so difficult for me because it wasn’t simple as it started, I just made it got bigger and bigger ,more than I can handle so I end up empty handed, no dear no will, no nothing I could do. Start small, and then grow up. believe me it works in the long run it wont tire you going on, because normally things get more big and u face more obstacles as u go on, but if u started big, weather you wont be able to even start or force yourself and then get tired right away. And the result is same!
You know as a reader I always thought that people who write (though I write as well) they give me some lecture about what they see right and what they think you should do. Meaning “lecturing” me, though I never did that in any article I wrote, all were my very personal and other close people’s experience. not saying I know better, I strongly believe in the saying “what fits one should, doesn’t fit another” but we are human beings, we think same and act same about some stuff, that’s what I am talking about, so why am I saying this now? Because when I started this topic, I wanted to talk about one critical issue not to me but to all youth, I want to be a better me as anyone I know.
When I started this topic I needed to give you this entire message. Just follow your dream whatever it takes, just DO what u want to, don’t delay it for later, and try to avoid falling into the tricks that may crash our dreams away. delaying is the most dangerous one that’s what I believe, the more you delay the more your ambitious will fade by time and the more you delay the more life take you from what you most wanted, till you suddenly find yourself one day without a dream without an aim u desire to do, and u stop and think “don’t I have some dream something I always loved to do”, we forget by time. What we should do is to always be awake, be ready to do what we want to, never delay. and don’t do like I did when I wanted to write about this article and wrote half of it and now I am trying to get back on track after one month and tell you “don’t delay”.. That’s sarcastic ha? But people make mistakes. And we are all here to learn. Aren’t we?
