“It’s time to set the record straight
No more excuses, no more complaints
Leave everything behind, get up and live your dream
Don’t let it fade away
We are all born to be free”
There’s something inside you that wants to come out…
Some purpose or lifestyle that you dream of, it’s the thing you fantasize about at night when you’re all alone…
It’s the life you wish you were living when you’re stuck at that shitty job.
Maybe it’s the countries you want to explore…
Or the body you want to build….
Whatever it is, you know it better than anyone.
You’re thinking about it right now as you read this.
But you don’t want to admit it to yourself that that’s the thing that you really want.
Because you’re scared to shit of what would happen if you were to dedicate every waking minute to it…
Think about it, what would happen?
I know, you’ll become “that guy” who made it…
That guy who does what he wants, when he wants.
That guy who is the rarest of things in this society… happy.
You’ll be that guy who said to himself:
“Fuck this, enough is enough, I’ve lived my entire life running from what I want most, settling for mediocrity and learning to accept my going without those things that are on the other side of my fears…
No more fucking excuses, no more fucking complaining. I wasn’t born to live like this…
From now on, I’m doing this shit my way.”
You’ll be the guy who said that, and actually followed through with it.
Who lost most of his friends because they thought he was weird and had “lost the plot” (but made some new ones along the way)…
That guy who spent weekend after weekend alone in isolation, building the life that only he could see, the life that everyone else would scoff at and ridicule….
That guy who ditched the crutches of the tribe and learned to stand on his own two feet…
How much longer are you going to wait before you demand nothing but the best version of yourself?
What are you waiting for?
No one’s coming to save you…
The time is never going to be perfect.
Your life is slipping away with each day that passes as a blur of mediocrity.
What fucking excuse do you have for not giving this one life your all?
You know what you have to do, just get fucking moving…
In the words of Ayn Rand:
“The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.”
