There is this life we have and we have a lot to do in it.
We must manage our personal lives, our work lives, and our relationships, but there’s one thing a lot of use forget about.
We must consider our dreams, for they push us to be better in our other managements situations.
Our dreams and whether we pursue them are some of the most difficult situations we undertake. It’s these undertakings where we may struggle the most. Where we may get our most strident resistance from others.
But, for the large majority of these resisters, it’s more to do with who they are, what they have or haven’t done with their lives, and how hard it was to give up their own dreams.
For some they gave up early because it was too hard. For others life got in the way of the chase, but there is a group who are offended that you dare chase something because they couldn’t.
This last group will tell you whatever you want hear, but in the dark, they’re saying other things. You should look at these people when your goals and dreams feel hard. These are your motivation. These are where you find the energy to do what you need to do.
The rage and anger you feel when you hear about the words they’ve said should push you harder than anything else. Your mind tells you to leave it alone, but that little voice in your head, it tells you to rip their throats out.
Listen to that little voice. Your mind says play nice, that voice…well, it says darker, more disturbing things.
Truth be told, that little voice, it’s your darkness. It’s the truth of who you are. Use it.
