How do you see yourself 10 years from now? Or should I say how would you want to see yourself 5 years from now? Have you tried to put the pieces together and picture your future?
Don’t be afraid to tell yourself that you’ll be successful 5 years from now. Soar high and reach for the best. You should always say that you’ll have a better future.
Try to look at yourself 3 years before today. Where are you? What are you doing?
You’re probably just somewhere and doesn’t care of anything but yourself. Living everyday is just like a game for you and time passes by easily for you.
Let’s say you’re just staying in your friend’s house everyday. You pretend to attend to school and go home when the time is exactly as school hours.
And now where are you? What are you doing?
I just hope that the YOU 3 years before isn’t the same anymore. Don’t get stuck up with something that you think is making you happy now. Try to analyze everything and think if it is for the good. Try to look in your future if you continue what you’re doing now.
Trust me, I’m telling you that it feels so good to achieve something and make your love ones proud. So why not try harder and make things flow in a current that is heading in the stream of success.
Look at this story…
There was this kid – he used to like playing online games. His parents are doing everything to provide him his needs but what they don’t know this kid is just wasting everything.
He leaves home at 8am everyday and asking for money to go to school. But then he just go rather to his friend or somewhere where he can play using the cash that he got from his parents.
Poor parents, they thought that everything is fine but in reality it’s not. They got blinded because of what the kid was doing.
This kid plays straight for 12 hours and goes home at around 8pm. Just because his parents doesn’t ask what’s happening in school he just sit there in the table and eat dinner like he’s not doing anything wrong.
He’s doing this most of the time until one time when he got home from school he noticed something different.
There’s no food in the table, his parents are fighting and there’s no water in their faucet. He tried asking his mother why and the only thing she said is that they had no money to pay for the water bills.
This episode struck him so hard. It made him think. It almost made him cry because of guilt and desperation.
He started trying to change and asked someone if he can offer him a job. And to his surprise there is an offer in that instant!
From that lowest point till for over a year everything went fine for their family. The business of his parents started to grow and his work was continuous.
What message do I want to give you from this story? Try to look at yourself now and try to picture yourself 5 years from now. What do you want to see? Where do you want to go?
Don’t let something like that happen to you before you make your move. Don’t waste time because it is gold.
In life opportunity sometimes knocks at your door and sometimes you just really have to find it.
In this story the kid didn’t make any action until they suffer from money problems. Do you want that to happen to your family too before you do something?
Always ask yourself if what you’re doing now will have a great positive affect in your future. Don’t be stupid like the kid was once.
As what they say, “The early bird catches the worm.”
So go out there and do something great while it’s still early. You’re not getting any younger. You have to act now not only for yourself but also for your family.
Make your parents proud and do it with everything that you’ve got. Give it your 120% and success will surely fall into your bucket.
So do you still want to continue what your daily routine now? Or you want to make a change? Change for the better and to make everyone proud of you?
I’ll give you a two-word message before I end this post.
