Is it true that doing less, is actually doing more? If you take a look around at all the people you know, and think about what they actually do around the place, what do you see? You look around the room, there’s someone in the middle of a large group of people telling all the funny jokes. He is the shepard, and they are his sheep. They follow him, worship him. Then, just behind this gathering, you catch a glimpse of the loner. He sits by himself quietly in the corner, getting on with his work while casually listening in on the conversations around him. He takes it all in, while his fingers type away. The end of the day, and he’s finished it all while nobody else has even started. But who gets all the credit for working? It’s the comedian.
The pretty person at the front with the loudest voice will always seem to win. However it’s the dark horse at the back who actually makes it happen. It’s strange to look around myself, and imagine what people would be like in years to come. Seeing what kind of attitudes people have to working, and trying to determine if they will make anything of themselves. Now is the time for people to be making those moves on their careers, deciding whether they need to work harder to reach those dreams. It pains me to hear how people speak non-stop of their dream, wanting to be this or be that, but you look back at them and what? They’re just another student. That’s it. They get up some mornings, get on a bus and ride into college. They sit the lesson, barely try at the work and then head home. Yet, they have this dream of being everything and everywhere, but all you can do is imagine them working in a shop. That’s not a dream, that’s a cover up for “I can’t be bothered”. If you really dream it, get up. Get out.
Fight for it and instead of saying how much you want to be something, start saying how much you’re going to be something. It really changes everything.
