IF YOU WANNA BE SOMEBODY, WAKE UP AND PAY ATTENTION
Life makes more sense and has more meaning the moment you are able to discover your actual purpose. Just plunge in and don’t second guess yourself. Sure, having someone’s confidence in you is awesome but it would do nothing if you don’t have that confidence in yourself too. Another’s belief in you won’t be worth anything if you do not believe in yourself too.
You know how we ladies get lost in reverie about our dream man and the day we would meet him? (No matter what anyone says or how puffed up you want to act that you do not care, we each, all of us want the true magic of love and we look forward to our happily-ever-afters).
Sometimes, the guy may turn up in the very package you dreamed of or better yet, in a package you never dreamed of but the important thing is he gives you the life of your dreams…….. So, it is with your passion and life. You may have figured that life sometimes doesn’t exactly pan out like how we envisaged for us and sometimes even when they do, it’s not exactly as exciting or beautiful as we hoped it would be.
Just like love, with life, you have to go with the flow. There are no hard and fast rules about falling in love or a life manual on how you should live.
JUST LIVE AND HAPPILY, AT THAT….
Don’t be desperate for things to happen. They always do no matter how much they delay. You just got to be ready for what you want. Hence, someone rightly said, “If you woke up without a goal, go back to sleep”. You just have to be ready and prepared for that which you want…..therefore, you first have to figure out what it is you really want.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” —Nelson Mandela
Look deep within you and find that unique gift you have. Do not be bothered if there are already so many players in the field of play. All you should do is bring your best to the game and remember that you are not in competition with anyone.
Just be you. DO YOUR THING and have fun.
Go, live not a little BUT much……. You got this and can do it. Go do what your heart keeps tugging at you to go do……go do that which gives you true joy and happiness and helps in the development and upliftment of your fellow man. “It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live”, said Mae Jemison
So, if you wanna be somebody; If you wanna go somewhere, you better wake up and pay attention.
