This is exactly where you want to be. When everyone is looking at you and the decisions you’re making like you’re OUT OF YOUR MIND, then you’re most likely doing exactly the thing you have in your heart.
When you look up the definition of incredible, it is defined as, difficult or impossible to believe. When you look at some of the things you really want to do with your life, you might think to yourself, “Wow. This would be incredible to do.” If the things you see yourself doing with your life look, incredible, don’t you agree that it will take the same level of action to achieve it? If i don’t want anything of real value in my life and I’m just, eh… passive… whatever… indifferent…
Those goals of indifference will take action that is, that’s right, indifferent. It’s easy, it’s boring, it’s mush and I personally think life is meant to be at least a touch above mush. So when life is a touch above mush, it will take movement on your behalf to achieve a life that is a touch above mush. Now if you’re getting super freaky and want to live that life that you might define as incredible, again, it’s gonna take incredible movement. Most people don’t live lives of incredible movement, they’re usually a touch above mush.
This means, when you start making moves in your life that are required for that incredible level, most people think you’re nuts. That’s where you want to be. “Why would you wake up at 5:00a.m. everyday, even on days off?” Because I’m crazy. “Why do you read as much as you do when there is so much good TV to watch?” Because I’m crazy. “Why the hell would you leave a full-time job that’s paying for your master’s degree AND the master’s program that you have all A’s in?
I already told you, I’m crazy. Trust your vision.
Let it be ok that no one can see what you see.How can you make a difference yet remain the same? I don’t just mean a difference like, Mother Teresa difference, I mean a difference in yourself. Unless you don’t enjoy peace of mind and peace of heart. Maybe you’re actually addicted to feeling like shit. I don’t know, but I do know that if you taste just a little bit of joy and a little bit of peace, you’ll want more.You’re normal if you’re like me and most of the culture.
We have a full time job for a certain company or organization that gives us health benefits and a 401(k). A bunch of people literally tell us how much money we’re gonna make for the rest of our lives and they’ll also tell us how much we have for retirement. Everyone outside of myself has complete control of my financial future. It’s fantastic! Actually I think that sounds fucking crazy.
“At first they’ll ask you why you’re doing it. Later they’ll ask how you did it.” But the point is to not give a hoot what they say at any point and just keep doing it!
