“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.”
Success.. What is Success? What is it for you?
Is it how the society has defined it since ages and people have been following this “definition” blindly..?
Is it how the rest of the world sees it and imposes it on us?
Or maybe success is what recruiters tell you – the direction that they steered you in..
“oh.. you know.. when I was your age, I’d take any job that I would get and persevere in it”
That is Success to you?
I beg to differ..
Success is what you want; deep inside.. what is your intuition saying? What’s your passion? What is it that YOU want to do?
You are trying to follow your dream career; but then you keep failing.. and you give up..
Or, people start talking how crazy and silly you are for getting out of the comfort zone.. the safety net.. the secure job!
And, you give up!
Look around you.. How many people are truly happy in their job? How many really.. like fuckingly love their job?
Job? That’s not even the right word..
But, those people will stay in their job. They will never move. Because they are scared. Scared of starting over again. Scared of getting out there; outside the safety net. So,they complain.
So, isn’t it better that you are out there trying and failing; instead of not trying at all like the rest of the world?
Billionaires didn’t become billionaires just like this.
They tried. They failed. They believed. They fucked the society.
They took actions on their dreams. Their goals.
They fucked the society all the time.
And, they worked towards their ambitions.
Not giving up just because the rest of the world called them crazy.
Don’t let anyone define Success for you.
You create your own success; in the way you want.
And, it will happen.
I don’t care if you like me or not.
Insatiable lust for power and control runs thick in my veins. My father served as president of the United States of America—and his father before him. Montgomeries are born to lead and rule, to fear nothing and cower to no one, to make allegiances not friends.
But I digress.
With a senate campaign about to launch and presidential aspirations at fever pitch intensity, imagine my dismay when my strategist tells me I need to “settle down” with a “nice girl” in order to appeal to my constituents.
Enter Rowan Aldridge, a head-turning stunner with a charm school walk, Jackie O. refinement, and a well-connected family.
So I’ll do what I have to do, make her believe what I need her to believe, and as soon as the campaign’s over and I’ve secured my senatorial seat, I’ll release my pretty little butterfly back into the wild.
But this isn’t about all of that.
This is what happens a villain falls in love.
“What kind of question is that?” I shake my head, eyes narrowing. “More than anything, Rowan. I’d give anything for you to stay, for us to be together.”
I kiss her sweet lips, and I’m bathed in a strange warmth, an electric sensation unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. And for the first time, my words aren’t bullshit and lies.
I want her to stay.
I want her to choose me.
“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” ~ Aristotle
Are you really living?
It’s a simple question.. but, many would pause and think when asked this question..
Some would say yes immediately.. “Of course, am living.. I have a big job at this big company.. Or.. I am going to happy hour this evening to live.. I have this and this..
But, are you really living?
Or, are you just EXISTING?
Do you find happiness in material stuffs ? Do you find joy only when you go out or when you are with your friends?
Are you able to stay alone and feel peaceful? Feel inner happiness? Feel alive without being dependent on anyone and anything?
Do you often say.. I’ll do that when I get a better job.. or take care of my health afterwards.. I’ll be happy when I’ll have enough money.. ?
It’s good to have a vision and future goals.. but, if you forget to be happy in your present and cherish what you have right now; you’ll keep on chasing and chasing happiness..
Don’t let your life becomes a routine 🙂
Don’t be like everyone else
Don’t settle for less that you deserve, that’s what everyone does
Become the best version of yourself!
Learn to be happy with yourself, with your flaws, your body
No matter what people say about you; you know that you’re awesome
and, that’s more than enough
Don’t fall in the society’s trap..
Create your own world.. Your own adventures.. Love.. Live.. like really live..
So – ask yourself this :
Are you really living?
