WHY DO YOU EXIST
"It's not death that most people are scared of. It is getting to the end of life. Only to discover that you never truly lived. According to a motivational speaker " There was a study done of 130 elderly people on their sick bed. Facing death, close to their last breath. They were asked to reflect about their life's biggest regret. Nearly all of them said, they regretted not the things they did but the things they didn't do. The risks they never took. The dreams they didn't pursue. I ask you would your last words be " If only I had..."
Hey you ..."WAKE UP" why do you exist. Life is not meant to simply work wait for the weekend and pay rent. I don't know much but I know this, everybody in this world has a gift. And I apologize to the black community. But I can no longer pretend. Martin Luther King? That man never had a dream. THAT DREAM HAD HIM. People dont choose dreams. Dreams chose them. So the question am getting to is do you have the courage to grab the dream that picked you. That befits you that grips you r will you let it get away and slip through.
You know I learnt a fact about airplane the other day. Now this was so surprising. I was talking to a pilot and he told me many of his passengers think planes are dangerous to fly in but he said it is more dangerous for plane to stay on the ground. I said, "What? Like, how does that sound?' well he said because on the ground the plane starts to RUST, MALFUNCTION and WEAR out more faster that it ever would if it was in the air. As I walked away, I thought "yeah makes total sense" because Planes were built to stay in the skies. And every person was built to live out the dream they have inside. So it is, perhaps the saddest loss to live the life on the ground without ever taking off.
See must of us are afraid of the thief that comes in the night to steal our things. But there is a thief in your mind who is after your dreams his name is doubt. If you see him call the cops and keep him away from the kids. Because he is wanted for murder. For he has killed more dreams than failure ever did. He wears many disguises and like a virus, will leave you blinded, divided and turn you into a "kinda". See Kinda is lethal, You know what a kinda is , there is a lot of kinda people. You kinda want a career change. You kinda want to get straight As. You kinda want to get in shape. It's a simple match no numbers to crunch. If you kinda want something.then you will kinda get the results you want. What is your dream? What ignites that spark? You can't kinda want that. You gotta want it with every part of your whole heart. Will you struggle? Yeah, yeah. You will struggle. No way around it. You will fall many times but who is counting. Just remember there is no such thing as a smooth mountain. If you want to make it to the top then there are sharp ridges that must be stepped over. There will be times you get stressed and things you get depressed over but let me tell you something. Steven Speilberg was rejected from film school three times. Three times, but he kept going. The television executives fired Oprah Winfred that she wasn't fit for TV but she kept going. critics told Beyonce that she couldn't sing. She went through depression but she kept going. STRUGGLE & CRITICISM are prerequisites for greatness. That is the law of this universe and no one escapes it. Because pain is life. But you can choose what type. Either the pain on the road to success or the pain of being haunted with regret.
Do you want my advice, don't think twice. We have all been give a gift and that is called life so don't blow it. You are not defined by your past. Instead, you are born anew in each moment. So own it NOW. Sometimes you got to leap and grow your wings on the way down. You better get the shot off before the clock runs out. Because ain't no overtime in life. No do over and I know I sound like I'm preaching or speaking with force But if you dont use your gift you sell not only yourself but the whole world. So what invention do you have buried in your mind. What idea, what cure, what skill do you have inside to bring out to this universe? Uni = One Verse= Song. You have a part to play in this song. So grasp that microphone and be brave. Sing your heat out on life's stage. You can not go back and make a brand new beginning. But you can start now and make a brand new ending.
