Create your world a world you can live in
The world’s a wicked place (yes I know), there’s way too much evil in the world (certainly), the world’s too polluted (absolutely) and you can go on and on and on about how bad things are, yeah I already know but there’s something I’d like to remind you about too. You came out alone! the world’s a cruel place but you have the power of choice and you can create the world you want to live in, and the best part is, since you’re the artist you decide what happens. Let me show you howJ.
- Paint a picture with your mind
The best part about living is our ability to imagine. When it comes to creating things with our minds we push it to kids and tag it a ‘child’s thing’. This I say without apology is absolutely crazy. Most of the great inventors finished their great works first in their minds. So if you want to the best out of life, you have to first have it in your mind. So stop problems and start seeing opportunities.
- Watch your reaction to things
Most times the way we react to things and people determine the way they in turn react to us. If you want to live a good life, you must watch your actions and reactions likewise. People are always going to be people (you know what I mean *winks*) but you can decide whether to let that affect you. For instance, someone bumps into you or scratch your car, what’s going to be your reaction? Well you can decide but picking a fight and probably getting hurt at the end isn’t the right thing to do.
- Watch the things you say
Whether or not you think this is a ‘preacherly’ thing to say, ama say it anyway. Words are very powerful and you get what you say in life and out of live. When you keep talking bad and negative, your whole worlds going to be bad and negative like it’s upside down. So do yourself a great favor by shutting your mouth if you’ve got nothing good to say then don’t say anything at all.
- Watch the people around you
Permit me to ask, who are the five closest people always around you whether consciously or not? If you’ve answered that please be honest with yourself and answer this: Are they good for me or are they bad for me and why? Because those around make up your world, so pick them carefully.
- Pursue that image you painted
Now, chase after that dream you drew up. Start small no matter how big it is and grow bigger as you increase. Whatever it is you want to do, do it as long as it’s good for you, legal and moral.
Note, people will call you names, one will be ‘crazy’ but please don’t bother giving explanations and just pursue that idea or dream. Don’t feel discouraged because no dream is unachievable.
