Logic Of The Day: 23.04.2018.
We’ve all got our excuses. Work steals a lot of time. There’s that daily commute. The mortgage is like a monthly ball and chain. It slows you down, but you need the house. You need the job. After all, it provides health care and some dental coverage. I get it.
We trudge off to work, schedule our vacations, and carve out moments to fan the creative embers still inside our hearts. They may be smoldering, but somehow our dreams keep the flames from flickering out.
The flames represent our passions. Be it art, music, sports. Whatever it is that quickens our hearts. These passions are like mountains. We have no choice but to climb them. Because they are there, in front of us.
Passions, like mountains, are not easily conquered. There is usually a toll. Obstacles. Costs to bear, if we are to achieve something to be proud of.
But the price of ignoring our passions is worse. A dream long ignored or a passion abandoned, leaves a dead spot in our hearts and souls.
“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” — Michael Jordan.
