In this modern internet age we have a wealth of awe-inspiring things at our fingertips and that can at times, be rather discouraging; particularly when it comes to pursuing our dreams.
You’ll find that it’s easier to sit and watch someone else achieve greatness, rather than go after it yourself so you don’t even bother trying at all. Ever watched the ‘people are awesome’ channel on YouTube? It’s an inspiring watch, but it is also a sore reminder of how uneventful your life really is…but does it have to be so? You are the commander of your life and it is time for the rest of you to fall in and follow orders.
You see, creating something average is a darn-sight more impressive than doing absolutely nothing at all and even if you don’t shake the very foundations of this planet in the process of trying; I guarantee that you’ll have an incredible amount of fun either way!
That is what life is all about, is it not? – Creation, activity and achievement. We have been blessed with the capacity to endure and aspire and yet the majority of us squander this on mere day dreams, when in actuality all we need to do is say yes. Say yes, as opposed to: “I’d love to be able to Ski like that one day!” – Never mind your half-arsed, speculative wishes and set a date. If you’d ‘love to be able to Ski like that one day’, then book your Ski Trip today!
We are at our happiest when we are expressing ourselves, sharing our passions and achieving our goals. Why aren’t you pursuing your goals? What is stopping you besides your own inaction and procrastination? Is it your age? Do you think that perhaps ‘your ship has sailed?’
Don’t let your age dictate what you can and cannot do! It is never too late to pick up an old guitar and strum your way toward a life full of music and harmony. Sure you’re likely no Bob Dylan, but if the times are changing then so should you be.
People tend to look at art as being very black and white; a dodgy painting slapped on a canvass by a drunk with one ear. Well, it runs much deeper than that. Art is creation…and you don’t need a pen or a brush to do so, all you need is a little imagination and some will power. You may not be able to write, but you can sure as hell carve your name into the snow.
Whether you see yourself dragging your fingers through the inside of a barrel wave, baking the perfect cake, building a tree-house or sculpting a statue of yourself spearing a grizzly bear; you’ll never know what it is to be happy until you at least give it a try!
Dream, dare, explore and create! Always fancied a trip to Japan? Why not go one better and tie it in with some Skiing or Snowboarding at Madarao Ski Resort?
Life is to be lived. There are so many people who would give what little they have to be able to actualise their dreams. An estimated 46% of the people on this planet who have never seen snow, and likely never will, and yet you’re just a click away. What are you waiting for?
