Hard hitting, true inspirational stories are what drive this World to see the light of day towards the end of every dark night. People who take real pain, are the ones whose names are told in stories of fallen stars rising back to the top, whether they accomplish anything or not. These are the people who make a mark everyday, and make another mark on a later day to sense how much they have moved forward.
One may argue the point to all this: "Why even bother? I love my couch, I love my dog, I love my TV. Who needs to move forward, if I love where I am today, and every other tomorrow?"
Those who've known me by now can say without a doubt that I'm the-one-who-loves-the-couch-person. I woke up one day, and asked the forward moving person "what does it feel like on the other side of the fence?"
He told me that he was me once. He loved the fact of having no agenda, no workout plan, no career motivation, no savings.. He loved a good laugh with friends, talk about the happy world, and float his back over a lazy pool full of movies to watch, and good food to eat. All he loved was something new to read about, something new to talk about.
But there came a moment when he ran out of these interesting stories. Each story he found was just a variant of another. As he looked around, he realized that he was nothing more than an echo of what belonged to various other voices.
He hated being the guy who spread the warmth of a fire that was started by somebody else. He was done listenning to stories. He decided to get up, and write his own story.
The next day, and the day after that, this new ideal seemed difficult to cope up with. The planning, execution, and social acceptance as well- having to explain what brought on this sudden change of cycle from having no intention of doing anything at all- to a new beginning where every day is marked as a reminder of what was achieved and not. Just as easy as it was to do nothing at all, it seemed just as hard to do something every day, that meant something. And it felt terrific!
So this person who I was so inspired to learn from is the same one who had been sitting on the couch everyday, and watching TV.
That person, is you.
You've just decided to get back to the old ways of moving forward rather than wait and watch what others do in the front.
The moment you get off that couch, you will decide to never look back.
Get up.. write your story.
