No One Ever Grew And Achieved A Goal Without First Being Bold

Jul 4, 2008
In life we see many people. In the main, we will find that many of these people share the same problems, and obstacles in life. Sometimes we find gems however, these diamonds that have somehow past those obstacles and are living life on there terms.

These select few, call them diamonds, call them elitists, call them the medal owners, the richest people in the world, whatever, still these people achieve so much in there lives. No matter what happens, even if all they have worked for turns to dust, they still rise once again.

How is this possible? How is it possible that these people, who almost all started from the same position as you, now live what I call a life of BLISS? These people are just like you and me, but they constantly achieve great things.

Being bold is the key. When I was 17, I set upon a journey to follow Richard Branson in his footsteps. I was creating a magazine, and found myself in the office of a distributor of magazines. I tried many places, and they all said no, however, here I was and I was talking about putting to market a magazine that would sell millions of copies.

Being bold is what has enabled people to go right from that time when man was in caves, to venture into living in possibly less stable houses! This vision was not shared by many of course. In the language of 'ug, ug' these people probably did not want to go. After all it is new, and why would you want to leave the stability. Why would you ever want to start a business, when a job can provide security?

Does a job really provide you stability? Does a job guarantee that you will live life as it is meant to be lived? Life is here to be enjoyed, yet many people pass it by. They choose the job which is the easy route. This is the world of the mundane. This is how everyone lives, but, the few break out.

Like an odd sheep in the crowd, these people find themselves divided in a world with the chief and the Indian. One being a subordinate and the other taking the lead. Often I will hear comments from my parents of my fondness to buy new foods, even though I have never tried them before.

The only way, you can, break out and live life to the max is to forget the limits that mass society decides on. You must say what is possible, not what is not possible. All that food in the grocery store is there for one reason, and that is trial and error. Imagine all the people that might have died, simply because they tried new things. Is this bad? No, not at all. After all, without there dedicated effort, today we may have only lived on a very limited range of foods, and medicines would be nonexistent.

How can you act boldly? What will you do when others mock your plans? Will you indeed carry on, even though the journey seems tough? Will you wait to have the last laugh, and say, yes it is possible? Or would you rather sit on the couch, and let others live life?
