What would you do if you could change the world? Actually I have a better question to ask you. What would you do if I told you that you have already changed the world? The ability to change the world isn’t a talent that can be learned. Even the highly-touted Ivy League Schools scattered through the New England section of this country couldn’t prepare you to change the world.
The reason for this is because, being able to change the world is a talent embedded in you as a youth. It’s almost comparable to a webcam on a computer. Either you have it or you don’t. Well sure, you can always buy a webcam to install on your brand spanking new laptop; just like you can always learn a talent that will undeniably change the world. But what are the chances of that add-on webcam working as smooth and precise as a webcam already installed on your laptop? What’s the chance of that artificial motivation triggering you to believe in yourself to the paramount of your abilities? Simply put, you can only do so much in life without actually believing in your abilities. The motivating words by loved ones and friends can get you through any battle life throws at you, but can it get you through the war? It seems to come a point in every person’s life in which they get stuck at the same stop light of life.
The two streets intersecting at this stop light are Reality Road and Imagination Avenue. Regardless of your presumed course of action to get to the top, inevitably you will stop at this intersection. The sign that reads before you is simple, take a right on Reality Road or a left on Imagination Avenue. The most interesting thing about this is that everyone reaches this intersection at a different time in their life, some earlier than others. Ironic about this situation is that everyone comes to this intersection with a dream. This is the same dream plan that you have been dreaming of for years, of how you’ll change the world in more ways than one when the chance arises. Now whether this dream comes to fruition depends heavily on your hard work and a little good luck. But that hard work and ability to persevere is going to have to be a talent already embedded in you. That is the only way that you will be able to stay focused through all obstacles and barrier’s that life will throw at you. It will come a point in which it will not matter who believes in you, but rather if you believe in yourself.
On the road to success, it’s easy to forget that one of the main goals in life is to enjoy yourself at all times. Work for what you believe in and work hard for it until you’re satisfied. Never short change yourself and never settle for mediocre results. But most importantly, remember to make a Right on Reality!
