Everyday the sun rises and the sun sets. It’s clockwork. Don’t waste the precious time you have on this earth doing anything other than what you love. “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” We’ve been bred to graduate high school, go to college, choose a major that will make us a lot of money and then spend the rest of our lives working to make someone else’s dreams come true. It’s ironic that we live in a country where the national ethos is based on the American Dream. We have the resources and opportunities to achieve prosperity and success yet so few people take advantage of this. Wasn’t America founded on the basis of freedom? So why are so many people slaves to corporate America?
We’ve been brought up to not take risks and to play life safe, to get a degree that will make us a lot of money rather than one that will make us happy, to believe that you need money to make money.
It’s time to stop living by these standards, falling victim to a mediocre, run-of-the-mill lifestyle. If you have a dream it’s time to take the leap of faith and go for it. As long as you have passion, drive and patience, nothing is impossible. Why work your entire life to fulfill someone else’s dreams, spend the valuable time you have in this world chasing yours. Remember, there is only one you, and if you’re not being yourself the world is missing out. Don’t exist. Live. -JC
