What would you die or live for?
Re-writing what it became a viral article in LinkedIn, thanks to being viewed 10.000 times, liked by 109 "influencers" and shared 56 times. Among those was Dr. Marshall Goldsmith recognized #1 Leadership Thinker in the World and the top 5 Management Thinker in 2016. And there it goes, let's recall it...
...This is not about your love, your mum, dad, friend, son or daughter. That’s easy to feel and think about.
This is about you, what is that something inside you that burns when it comes to your mind, to your stomach.
Well if you don’t know it, if you forgot it and just decide to bury it in the last corner of your mind, heart or emotions, it is about time you wake that something up back to fight.
You want that something back with all the strength you might have inside, because life is too short to keep wasting your time on others, other things or excuses that your inner voice mumbles you every day when you go bed or wake up.
Stop thinking and start doing. Start becoming immortal and making the difference. It only takes 10 seconds. Because Mondays just belong to the braves. No matter how many times that inner voice won the battle. No matter how many times others made you quit. There is no more time for regrets. Regrets only live on the minds and the hearts of those who die while living.
This article is not about me or you, it’s about everybody, it’s about the nature, it’s about the place and the way we live now. There is no secret recipe. It’s all about doing and stop thinking. There are no limits or regrets when we are doing and following what our hearts tell us to do. You just need to dare yourself and be that one you really want to be. Our lives just happen and mean in a second.
When is the best moment to plant a tree?
There is a Chinese proverb that says it was 20 years ago, and if not, today. Because we are today. Robbie Williams wisely sang it some years ago “No Regrets, they only hurt”. And it’s such a powerful truth.
We need to learn how to say no. Say no to those things that are not making us feel alive, that are pushing us back and not adding any value to our lives. We the people have the power, and that power is much more when we are together.
We need to say “welcome” to our fears. But for doing that first we need to be brave enough to admit we are failing and learning every day about thousands of things we don’t know and there is nothing wrong about it. Society teach us that failing is not good, it’s not accepted.
But indeed failing is the truth, and it’s the only way to be learning all the time. Once we are able to understand this, the real change will happen and we will be able to get rid of those all excuses and toxic people and things around us. The toxic inner voice of fear that paralyses us from being the best shade that we can be.
Now it’s our time, it’s time to begin, it’s time to forgive, it’s time to forget and it’s time to reborn as the best shade of ourselves the world has ever witness. It’s time to stop complaining and for each time we complain we give our presence to someone that might need help, without expecting anything in return.
This is when the miracle of YOU is happening at its most splendid form, and that can be now, there is no reason to wait.
If you feel like moving, and would like to send this precious simple message to more people around you, stop thinking and do it. If you feel you are part of the same universe, just do it, share it to the maximum people you can. You can start making your difference. This is not my post. This post has a little part of you all inside, it’s our message.
Stay rad, keep walking and believe it will happen, whenever you want it more than your own life.
