Watching television, reading newspaper articles, browsing over inspirational books and listening to motivational speakers are various ways of honing inspiration.
Whether it may be something that’s sparks creativity. Or the little push you needed to get out of bed to start the day. Admit it we all need this uplifting boost called INSPIRATION.
It was the start of the week and I greeted the day right with a hearty breakfast. To cap it off, I even wore something new—newly bought from the store. Oh how that boosted my good mood even more.
As I downed my hot chocolate, a popular segment on tv was playing. I wasn’t paying much attention to what the host were saying until the guest of that segment began to share his life story.
To make the long story short. It was about a man who built his Automobile Servicing Empire with only a capital of 10 Php Pesos. (Current exchange rate is 1 USD =52.7 Php peso.)
Sounds impossible right?
But the key to his success was hard work, self promotion and balancing his accounts just right.
He started off as a one man business but later on boomed into a multimillion worth company.
His overall journey has been filled with scratches and wounds that later on left scars that would serve as a reminder of the battles he has fought, lost and won.
His battles scars bear witness to his tough journey. But his neatly pressed suit he currently wears bear testimony to the success he has achieved after years worth of hard work and effort.
What an inspiring rags to riches story right?
Growing up, some girls often think of themselves as princesses and would dream of waiting for their knight and shinning armour to sweep them off their feet.
A few years later, these little girls would eventually grew up and see the realities that life has offer.
1. That the knight in shining armour is simply but a fantasy.
2. There are no leprechauns at the end of the rainbow.
3. Life went on despite the fact that Sleeping Beauty prettily slumbered away in her castle.
So upon waking up to the realities of life, this now disillusioned girl wipes away the remnants of childhood fantasies and stores away her tiaras and ball gowns under lock and key.
How does one fairy tale turned into a bitter and harsh reality?
This story was broken into two parts. One showed a harsh and brutal reality that later turned into a fairytale ending. The other showed the dreams of a child crushed by the harsh reality of life.
So what I am trying to drive at is this.
There doesn’t have to be a fine line between fantasy and hard reality.
If you simply choose to pave way and create a bridge that connects fantasy and hard reality won’t you reach a more achievable mid ground?
It is what you make of your circumstance that determines the output. Whether you choose to drown in your sorrows or swim against the tide to reach the shore.
A hero doesn’t have wear a cape and mask.
And a princess doesn’t have wear a gown and a tiara
You are your own hero.
Life your own fairytale ending.
We are our own inspiration.
Will you keep the ball rolling? Let me hand off this baton to you.
How CAN you be your own kind of inspiration?
What are those treasured experiences that keep you fuelled to go and push through.
So what are your thoughts?
