There are some places that we visit or some things that happen to us along the way that were not a part of the game plan but we have to make a part of the game plan. On the other hand there are some places that we find ourselves or some things that we made happen but know are not what we want but we stay or hold on to out of necessity, comfort or obligation.
I find it ironical that some of us educate ourselves reasonably well by any standard as education goes and we spend a lot of money to do so, but at the end of the day, the qualifications associated with the education are not used for the purpose that it was intended. The necessity to earn a living changes the game plan or creates a professional detour and or makes profession becomes just a job. The distinction leads to dissatisfaction and a diminished self.
I have seen students attend colleges and private institutions with a dream in mind or the presentation of a dream to them and I have seen them spend thousands of dollars on student loans to get in the educational door that has their dream written on it but somewhere along the way they drop out. They walk out the door, start over again or change direction and spend more money on an illusion rather than a dream. This might be due to lack of preparation, distractions or false hope.
To have a dream is a wonderful thing but it has to have some substance of possibility and reality attached to it. Hope is also a wonderful thing also because it gives you something to look forward to but it
also has to have a high degree of possibility attached to it and be associated with a vision that can someday be realized. If that is not the case, such hope is fruitless. It is also better to create your own hope and your own tracks, rather than allow others to do so for you.
I admire those with hopes or dreams and the tenacity to follow them through to the end. I admire those who pursue education with purpose or in spite of all the challenges that they face, stay the course. That is commitment for you. I admire determination and persistence, for they keep you on track and ultimately lead you to success.
There is a common story or trend to most of us and that trend may fall under the umbrella of human nature. Our stories are similar but have different settings to them and ultimately different outcomes. Your story and your outcome depends on what you do and how you do it. It depends on your actions and your reactions.
It is human nature to start and stop a lot of things but what if something that you started is the key to the door that you must open. What if something that you started was meant to touch many lives in a positive way? What if something that you started resonates with who you really are or is what you were meant to do? What if something that you started is the direction that you are truly meant to take to find you and to find fulfillment? What if something you started was meant to be your legacy to the world?
If you start and stop something that is meant to take you in a particularly good direction, you will never find out the true significance of that journey.
We all make mistakes on our journey but if we can make decisions that beneficially outweigh those mistakes that we have made, such mistakes become irrelevant. If we cannot make decisions or journey in a direction that overrides prior mistakes, those mistakes will remain very expensive mistakes.
Wake up and get back on track in the direction that you must follow rather than the ones you have to follow out of necessity or fear the unknown. being on the right track will always make you feel positive and provide you with a great sense of fulfillment. It will give hope, its true meaning. Have some faith in yourself and the unknown territory that lies ahead, waiting for you to arrive and to explore.
