If there is a thing I have learned in the past weeks, is that you have to stop spending time with people who make you feel bad, unwanted, unnecessary. I have decided to stop contacting, sharing my dreams with people who are just jealous of my achievements instead of proud.
For heaven’s sake, I know I’m ambitious as hell and I know sometimes it’s hard to keep up with it because some people simply dream of an average life (which honestly it is something I envy because you come to value even the simplest joy of your life instead of running for a great achievement).
The fact is that I can’t change the person I am. I have grown tired of hearing how could you ever complain, you have it all. The truth is I don’t have it all. As my dear friend and big sister told me last night, I’m hungry to learn, travel, experience and mostly to succeed.
I don’t want an ordinary life, even though sometimes I wish I could be happy just by taking the easy way, but the truth is I’m never gonna be happy if I do so. I want greatness. One day, I want to look back at my life and be able to say: yes, I might have sacrificed nights of sleep and hours of rest, but it was all worth it, now I am where I want to be.
I have grown tired of being criticized for who I am, for my deep seek of greatness. I have grown tired of hearing success doesn’t define you as a person. The truth is it does. There is no such thing as having a career, a job that defines you, to make you happy. Go to bed with a dream and wake up with a vision, a plan to make it real. Don’t wait for opportunities to pass you by, take them, look out for them. Be a seeker, be enthusiastic, be a dreamer, sometimes. But never forget you are not the only one out there, you have to fight for that dream, you have to focus, spend all your time and energy for a greater achievement.
If you had to wake up every morning at 5am and go to be late at night for a bigger goal than having money to go get beer with your pals, would you? Would you deny the immediate satisfaction for a bigger one, maybe uncertain, maybe still remote? Would you still believe it, even when no one but you does?
Have a vision. Stay hungry, stay foolish. Be great.
Have A Safe Journey!
