So you have a goal, i mean, everyone has goals , depending on the situation in your life and you circumstances, your goal could be related to one or two of many things or areas. Maybe your goal is to have more money , find more success , find a perfect relationship, revive a relationship, to get laid (m not judging, its a perfectly fine goal as far as goals go), Lose weight, world peace, become the president of USA, the point is that if you are alive and breathing right now, you want something.

When we first set a goal, our stupid brain( yes it’s stupid) who believes that it knows everything assures us that we have all the know how to get things done, obviously the reality sets in after a couple of days and the brain cleans after itself saying , “Life’s a Bitch”. Then it points us towards someone who already has achieved what we are trying to do. (And if you are trying to do something that only a few have managed to do ‘like repair a relationship’ you are screwed, with no one set example the brain will try its hardest to convince you to give up)

So now that you have a role model, you look up how they achieved what they achieved , their life story ,their challenges, You motivate yourself, becoz you relate to them , you are this person has the same dream, ‘WOW’ they did it, so can you. And that is the biggest load of crap.

You wanna know why , here is why, pick up steve jobs and bill gates biography, yes they were friends and yes they both became big in the tech industry (hence a common goal) , but other than that you will find no similarity in the way they achieved that goal. Yes they started at the same place but both their journeys were significantly different to each other, bringing me to the point i am trying to build up to for the past 60 minutes while stuffing my face with a side of chilly chicken (which is besides the point)..


There are infinite ways to get what you want. 

And by more than one way i mean, there are millions of ways to achieve that one thing that you want to achieve. Let me explain, there are 8 billion people on the planet, all of them have a mind of their own , So many people , so many choices , all of them intertwining with each other to create infinite possibilities . It’s infinite demand and supply.

So what now, you would say, "Let’s say for a moment we agree with you , that we don’t need to follow our role models, rather we can find our own new and unique way to get stuff done, but the problem is , we don’t know that way, in case of a role model or the conventional way we know what they did, we have a road map, its easy to look at in theory hence tempting to follow, but making our own path, we wouldn’t even know where to begin?”

Seriously, where?

The answer to that small measly problem. You don’t know where to begin, but you do know where to end. I mean, you still have your goal in your mind. The ending. Close your eyes, can you see it?, you with the end goal in hand, imagine that scene, imagine the reactions of your loved ones, imagine the success , how did it feel , did it feel awesome ? if it did , congratulations you have just started on the road to success.

That is the beauty of this life, we are not supposed to work out the details of how we will get there , all we have to do is dream and feel the place of success, and the more frequently we do that , the faster we will be shown the path, ie; what to do next to get a step closer. Muggles call it opportunity (treat it like a unicorn sighting) , i call it creating a path.

We have been taught to believe that we have to find a way to get things done, but in reality the way was always supposed to be shown to us. That is how life works, try anything else and you will struggle and fail. It’s only when you surrender the doubts and the hows and just dream the dream and feel the feelings things will start to work in your favor.
So dream on, coz in between all the running , planning , hard work, the one thing that you hardly do is dream the dream of achievement, feel the feelings, coz you are too busy following in the footsteps or wallowing in the ‘how’s’ and the doubt’s.
