Lately I have witnessed select individuals that go against all bitter judgement to do what they love, and I am 100% in support of that. They have passion for something, and that is a rare characteristic in today’s society.
There are too many people that just float through life not knowing (or caring about) what they want. How could that be a way to live? I understand going through a period of time where you aren’t really sure who you are, but you need to figure it out. The way I see it, everyone was put on this earth to make some kind of impact, but there are so many people that just never try to figure it out. Thus, making no impact.
I’m not trying to put pressure on you all to discover what you were meant to do, but it’s not just going to come to you one day. You have to look long and hard for it. Maybe it’s a secret talent that you have. Maybe it’s a talent that you know you have, but you’re too afraid to show it, and that’s a huge part of the problem. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK.
I honestly can’t stress that enough. The people that go with what everyone else is doing at the time—those are the people that don’t make an impact. I mean, how can you expect to leave your mark on the world if your mark is the exact same as 6 billion other marks. (Hint: you can’t.)
You have to be different. You have to show people what you’re really like. Who you really are. Because if you don’t, then you will never ever know why you are here. Maybe some of you really don’t care, and I get that, but you should care. You have to throw your talent out into the world, and you have to be proud of it. If you’re not confident about what you are doing, then people will sense that, and there’s nothing that people love more than attacking a person that’s unsure about himself/herself. (Vicious, I know.)
I challenge you do to something you have always wanted to do. You want to be a photographer? Go out there and be one. You want to be a writer? Start writing a book on your computer. You want to be a model? Find a photographer to take amazing pictures of you.
Yes, it is that easy. The world is open for you to do anything you’d like with it. So why not grab ahold and give it a go?
