To really and truly make an impact on this world you have to make huge sacrifices - there is no other way.
Steve Jobs was one of the most visionary and ingenious humans to ever walk the Earth. His mantra of passion and fearlessness will continue to be idolised by entrepreneurs well into the future.
I have always viewed a 9-5 job as something far scarier than starting a crazy company and failing. Our mindset is the number one determinator of our future. To alter this reality we must first alter our mindsets. We must realise what true risk and opportunity is and not be constrained by the so called 'normalcies' that society heavily imposes.
When you really think about it enough - is there really much risk in going after your dreams and ambitions? If we only have once chance on this Earth, why should we waste our time doing things that we don't truly love or that won't help forward society towards achieving better?
Let's seek the unknown, crusade a campaign of initiative and desire for greatness!
Sometimes I can't fathom the fact that every single day I am walking past random people on the street and I have no idea who they are, yet they themselves have a whole life story. They have a favourite colour, a best friend, a trial that they had to overcome, a talent, a job, things that make them annoyed, a favourite restaurant - a whole entire LIFE.
I know it might sound strange, but sometimes it really freaks me out to think that there is so much going on in the world and most of the time us as individuals have no idea of the specific circumstances that are occurring.
What I find even more fascinating is the fact that each and everyone of us has our own desires, ambitions and passions. And sometimes I find it hard to fathom why I am the way I am. Why was I born with the ambition and desires I have and not the ambition and desires of the person walking next to me?
For a while I really tried to understand why this was so, but of course finding the answer was not easy. Although I am yet to actually find an answer to this question that I have, what I have been able to understand is that I was born this way for a reason. And I feel that it is my responsibility to take on the challenge of the ambition that I have and really do something with it, not just talk or dream about doing something with it... but actually do it!
There is a famous saying, 'actions speak louder than words'. Although commonly used, what I have observed over my time on Earth is that most people speak a lot of words but never ever follow through. Why they don't follow through? A variety of factors and circumstances must come into play. Translating syllables spoken by our tongues to real tangible actions is a lot more difficult than one might first assume. So, when you come across people in life that are able to carry through with what they say it serves as a great inspiration - these are the true hustlers and drivers of the world and the people that will continue to pursue for the greater good of humanity, pushing boundaries and overcoming impossible hurdles. These are the type of people I want to learn from, be around and eventually (Because I am still not 100% there yet) fully become.
