“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.”
Many people live their life but only a few that truly living. I can’t really remember when, but I do remember when I realized that I don’t want to be like normal people that only live their life. I want to be one of those people who are truly living, those people who have lots of achievement, those people that do something big in their life. I don’t want to waste my time on something that is ‘useless’. Hence, most of the time I use my time to improve myself, develop my talent and pursuing things that become my goal. In that way, I have started to feel like I’m living my life to the fullest. At least when I die, I wouldn’t feel regret with what I have done in my life.
Go on adventures
The first thing you have to do is to go on adventures. Going on adventures will open your eyes that there are so many things in this world that you haven’t seen. Yet many people say that they want to travel but there are so many reasons that prevent them from doing it. They would say that they don’t have time, don’t have money, don’t have friends or family to go with and all other stuff. Let’s be honest, if we really want something, we could seek opportunity for it. There are so many different ways to go on adventures, it’s just a matter whether we want it or not. When you go on adventures, you will experience so many different things that you never thought before. It will definitely impact the way you live after. You won’t see the world as same as it was before.
Dream big means you have a purpose in life. You know what you want to do and what kind of life you want to live. When your purpose is not easy to get, you will have challenge and that’s the best part of living. Things aren’t always easy and I know how hard it is to reach our dreams. Especially if you have so many dreams and you realized it’s hard to do it all at the same time because we only have 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, 4-5 weeks in a months, and 12 months in a year. Time is our biggest enemies sometimes. YES it’s not, easy but it’s possible. Stay positive and believe you can. When you brave enough to capture your dream, you already start living your dream.
Work hard on something you want to achieve
Ever seen someone that always talks about their dream but the only thing they do is to either lay in bed or hang out with friends? They seem silly isn’t it? Because they only talk talk talk but done nothing. Talk less, do more. Don’t talk about your dreams to everyone every single day. Work hard on it and along the way, people will see the dream you capture. Don’t just dream of something and done nothing to pursue it. Work hard. Life is not easy and there are so many people in this world. Means that we have so many competitors in whatever fields we are doing. If we want to be success then we have to work on something that we want to achieve. Things aren’t always easy, there will be lots of obstacles in the journey – and the only way we could get through it all is to never give up and keep on working.
Do more than one thing at once
This is not easy, but it’s worth it. Normally, people only focus on one thing, such as pursuing career in music industry, or studying law degree in the university. Why don’t we try to do those 2 things at once? It is not impossible, means that it is very possible. You could do you honours degree in law but still pursuing your career in music industry. It might not be easy because you have to manage two different things at once, but when you do it, you will feel so productive. You have started to have more than one talent or even bigger, a career path. That’s how I live my life, I don’t want to only focus on one thing because I want to do many different things at once. However, it doesn’t mean I only jump from places to places. I know what’s my priority and what I have to finish. Don’t just do many things at once but don’t take care any of it. Do different things at once, but the things that you love, thus you will enjoy it and you will want to finish what you started.
Remember that you are the owner of your life
Sometimes we forgot that we are the owner of our lives. We think too much about others people expectation to us. We care too much about what others opinion about us. We live our lives under this circumstances. The circumstances where you have to be this kind of figure, the kind of figure that everyone captures you to be. It’s under our consciousness so we might not realize it. We do “A” to make our parents proud of us. We do “B” to impress our friends. We do “C” to get attention from our crush. We do “D” to impress our lecturer. We do “E” so then we will get a high position in the office. And much more. We don’t realize that sometimes we can’t truly living our life the way we want to, because of (many people claim) how the world works. We have a brain that thinks too much. Even when we sleep our brain is still thinking. Sometimes we forgot to just follow our intuition. You are the owner of your life. As long as you don’t harm others, there is no right or wrong in it. Life is an art. You’re the painter. And this world is the canvas. Whatever things you decide to put on the canvas, don’t doubt it.
