It is not too late

I am also writing to psyche myself. Whatever is your desire, your dream, your aspiration, your goal, it is not too late to go after them.

Reading other people’s success stories motivate you but atimes they depress you too. You suddenly find yourself feeling inferior in comparism if you don’t have a firm grip on yourself.

Firstly, you don’t need to compare yourself with anyone’s achievement. You came to this world at different times even if you are twins! We all have different aspirations, different skills and different level of mastery for similar skills. Learn to do your own thing in your own way in your own time. Be happy for others’ successess but do not allow those stories to deter you. Rather let them affirm in you that if they could do it, then you can do it too.

Secondly, reflect, reflect and reflect. Where are you supposed to be? I mean with regards to the dreams you had about yourself while growing up. In the plan for your life, where are you supposed to be now? What are you supposed to be doing? Where exactly are you now? This should be your basis for comparism. You daily compare yourself with your expected self. You set the goals for you, daily evaluate where you are and how far you are progressing in your life’s goals.

Thirdly, you have to take that first step. People have to be able to associate you with a theme, an idea or an area of excellence. People around you should be able to say in one word what you are passionate about; they should know what drives you; they should know what you are aspiring to excel in.

Fourthly, while doing your thing, enjoy. Don’t be too serious, relax and have fun while at it.

Rounding off, it is not too late to go back to school, start your own school or even help a school. You have one life to live, make it count.
