It’s easy to give up, isn’t it? Especially when everything seems to be falling apart.
No matter how hard you try, things just don’t seem to work out like you want them to.
Your head is full of a thousand questions.
The problem isn’t that you don’t have the answer to them.
In fact, it’s that you have too many to choose from.
And how is someone supposed to know what the “right” one is?
I mean, you could really just make a wrong choice.
That’s when we start trying to figure things out logically. Carefully making a list –
Pros versus cons.
Effort versus consequences.
Probability of having a “favorable outcome”.
We start crunching numbers, setting timelines and jotting down ideas.
We try to make sense out of what really is a big blur.
Because we’ve always been told that it’s better to “be prepared”.
And yes, that’s true. Actually, most of the time, it’s the best thing to do.
To sit down and make a plan.
But what if you come across something all of a sudden?
There’s just no time to think it through.
You have to decide – there and then.
Without that list.
Without the calculation.
Without a clue of where to begin.
Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Because we are just not used to thinking that way.
But to be honest, it really isn’t that hard.
All you have to do is listen.
Instead of talking yourself into believing something.
Instead of justifying your choices.
Instead of overthinking the unknown.
Just sit back and listen to yourself.
You will realize that you already know what you want.
Deep down inside, somewhere, you know.
Take a second to embrace it.
Close your eyes.
Breathe in the uncertainty.
Unleash the desire.
Don’t talk. Simply listen.
And the next time you open your eyes,
Things will be different.
Because you will be free.
From the storm inside your head.
And the endless what’s and why’s.
Giving up won’t seem like an option anymore.
You will want to take that one chance that you can.
Because you realize that it may be your only shot.
You will decide to keep going.
You will be ready to challenge yourself.
And that’s how you will always win.
Everything that will come your way.
You will rise.
Maybe even become a star.
Time and distance will cease to matter.
Because you will continue to shine brightly,
No matter where you are…
