For most of us, life does not always go as planned. Even though some people may have a five year plan, things change at a point when we least expect it. But fear not. Because everything that happens to us, it always happens for a reason. For some it might be good changes and for others it could be bad. But whatever unpleasant situation life throws at us, we must face it with courage, patience, positivity and humour. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Life is unexpected, and it does not care who you are or where you come from . For those Rocky fans out there, the beloved Sylvester Stallone rightly said to his son when he was blaming the world for his shortcomings:
“…and you grew up good and wonderful. It was great just watching you, every day was like a privilege. Then the time came for you to be your own man and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good. And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow.
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!
I’m always gonna love you no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, ya ain’t gonna have a life”.
Wise words and teachings that all of us should remember. Time is a powerful thing and if you have the patience to take life step by step, believe in yourself enough to reach your full potential, you have a promising future ahead. You shall reach the end of that ladder and you will get to admire the view from the top.
Why reach the sky when there are footprints on the moon? All you need is time.
