This is my first official post on this website and in the new year.
I would like to introduce my guest writer on this website, who I got inspired with him and we learned from each other throughout our lives. I found this writing of him very close to my thought and my message to the world. This is from Chris Hooks, an economist and a business consultant from Illinois.
“Why wait? Why wait to chase your dreams? Take a job and do something you are not truly passionate about? Do what you love to do. Chase your dreams! Those around us do not always have the right answer, no matter how much they love and care for us. We have to be true to ourselves and true to our passions. Even when it goes against what others think is best for us. Be true to yourself. Believe in yourself and believe in your vision. Those people who believe in their vision and pursue it are those who reach true success. That success may not mean boatloads of money, but it is an internal sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. These are irreplaceable by money. Money cannot buy these things. So what are you passionate about? What are you doing to achieve them? Are you hindered by your past decisions? By feelings of an I can’t do it yet attitude? Push past these things and live your life to achieve the dreams you have. If we do nothing to achieve our dreams we will only live with regret. If we at least try and do our best it brings greater satisfaction even if we fail. Don’t let past choices stop you. Just go for it and do it. You cannot change the past, but you can make the future. In this, be sure that your dreams are beneficial to those around you. If your dreams cause others harm, then you will never be satisfied no matter how much you achieve. Always do what is right, even when it hurts, especially when it hurts; because these are the most important moments and choices we face. Live your life in freedom knowing that you are at peace with all humankind, do not make enemies because your actions negatively hurt them unless those actions hurt their negative actions. It is good and bad in all. We must understand this and live in equilibrium. Equilibrium is very transient and is a moving target. Once achieved, it does not last. It is merely an intersection of two paths that are continuously on diverging. Our actions determine whether or not these lines intersect. Always try to have as many intersecting points as possible in your life. Love others more than yourself, give more than you take. Put the good of society above your own personal ambitions. Learn from the past, plan for the future and live every moment as if it’s your last. Do not do things expecting any return or reciprocity. Do them because it is right. In the end, you will receive from diverse ways the fruits of the seeds you plant.”
