The calendar was created to organize time not to dictate the pace of your life. The modern work perspective gives too much impetus to Monday morning blues and Thank God its Friday. Most of this created by stability chasing people who work halfheartedly towards the realization of someone else’s dreams. For them the bigger the break the better it is, the longer the weekend the more fun filled their life is. They might end up with a lot of money living this incomplete life, but do they really feel fulfilled at the end of it?
If you partake in any endeavor thinking about anything else except the task, then the job is not meant for you. You are not doing it with enough passion for you to make a difference into your own or anyone else’s life, you are easily replaceable and even if you succeed you will never be fulfilled.
The Dream Catching Trap
There is a small group of dreamers, the people who started the companies you aspire to work for. How are they different, they never fell for the trap. They dared to dream beyond the trap set by the enumerable organisations and companies wanting to enslave them, and the colleges and institutions wanting to train them to be enslaved.
For these dreamers work was more pleasure than pressure. Unlike others they took no days off cause they had a vision of greatness for themselves. They dint take up ordinary tasks just to find stability, they were devoted to their dream, intoxicated by their ideal, fanatics who dint cave in to the demands of society, who dint work thinking about the lunch hour, who worked free from the bondages of time.
Their future vision of themselves is what propelled them to sacrifice. Empowered by their imagination of a mesmeric future they never cared about the how, they kept doing what needed to be done.
From fear to freedom
But as life moves on these daring dreamers perish, evolution has introduced fear into genetics. The dreamers of the past have been replaced by a set of soft individuals who choose to be enslaved so that they can complain, who chose to let go off their dreams so as to be protected, who chose to fulfill someone else’s dream halfheartedly rather than chase their own wholeheartedly.
Have faith in your own vision, believe in your self, let your intuition guide you before someone else captures your imagination and leads you to the path of mediocrity and bored working hours.
If you are not willing to put in 110% effort for 25 hours a day, 8 days a week on the fulfillment of the task that you are working on with a smile on your face, then you are wasting your life and time.
Success vs Stability
As smarter people in need of your time and energy sugarcoat jobs and make them appear lucrative, it becomes impossible for people to follow their passions, knowing the short term pay off wont be as great.
You fail to understand that this short term barter will dent your psychology and condition you to be dependent all their lives, You become mental and emotional wrecks but still bare with everything that is thrown at you at the work place because you will never be able to embrace freedom, to act by yourself.
Instead of reading articles like “6 ways to build a charismatic aura” you will read “6 ways to avoid working on weekends” or “6 ways to deal with a dictator boss” or “6 ways to use Facebook at work”.
Discover your dreams and start working on them, just like anything else in life you will face roadblocks and obstacles, but if you are bale to bare with it for long enough, you will manage to lead a fulfilling life where all your dreams will come true.
