Before I officially start this post I’d like to establish few things. I am a person who’s driven by logic, so all of my responses towards emotional problems, are purely reflective of what I think is the most logical thing to say. That’s why I’m often called an asshole, heartless prick, a hater and so on.
I’m not particularly bothered with people who call me that because there are many more people who actually found my logic driven responses helpful to them. Okay, okay this is not a post so I could gloat about how many people I helped, or to make you think that I’m a nice person, because I’m not. I’m just an out-of-the-box opinion giver.
The point of my babble is that I’m not really motivational, or at least I’m not trying to be I just say what I think. If you find it helpful, great, if not, well that’s your problem.
So why would I who’s clearly an idiot when it comes to emotions and motivation, want to write a blog post about the motivational speech? I’m not a leader, I don’t have to motivate anyone, I have no obligation to try and lift someone’s spirit. Nor I know you, so there’s no reason for me to try and help you, I’m not even saying that I could help or anything.
I’m writing it simply because I believe that can. Does that sound opposing to logic? Well, it’s not opposing with my logic. Because if I wouldn’t try it how would I know that I can’t? Basically, I like to try to do everything that I’m interested in or what seems to be useful, only because no one proved me that I can’t. And as a scientist in training, I like to try things more than once, just to make sure that I really can’t. So after I fail at least 10 times of trying something in a different way, I give up on it or lose interest, or sometimes try another 10 times.
That said I don’t often give up on things, I mostly just change my mind about them, change them or lose interest before completing them. That’s probably the reason why I don’t appreciate people who just flat out give up without even trying to think of another way. I admit I complain a lot of how I can’t do something or how it just won’t work. But those are just complaints, something to help me get the frustration out of my system. None of my complaints mean that I’m willing to give up.
Neither should you.
True, I don’t know you. I know nothing about you or your struggles, but I do know one thing. You can do what you want but only if you don’t give up on it. There’s nothing wrong with changing your path, or the way how you do things. There’s nothing wrong with trying out stuff, just to see what fits. It’s also okay to just do nothing for a moment and collect your thoughts. As long as you won’t give up on yourself.
If you do give up on yourself you’re a loser. You’re supposed to be your number one cheerleader, don’t just give up on yourself. That makes no sense. It’s completely against human nature. You have to strive to be a winner, to be someone, to do something. It doesn’t matter how big or small, as long as you’re there you can change the world.
So go out there, reach your dreams. No matter how young or old you are, there’s always time, therefore, a chance to try again.
