You have 3 choices in life: Be good, get good, or give up.
Sometimes the choices we make can really define where we stand in life. Being somewhere is all we want, whether we have a great career, a great relationship or having a radiant friendship circle. To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Koffi Annan.
When life throws a lemon at you, make a lemonade out of it. By the way, I love lemonade :). Being a perfectionist, I tend to look at perfection in many of my actions. It’s a quality that has driven me to offer the best of me in everything I do. I set up two names for my alarm clock “Frustration” and “disappointment” , they always remind me that the path I have chosen is not working. If we are not going to better our life in any domains, the least we can do is to be good or try to be good at what we have.
The motion of the sea is so beautiful that I lose myself when staring at the surface waves. I found inspiration within that motion and I call it: motion of life. A stagnant point is a point where a change is valued and a immediate action plan is needed to keep that motion moving. After 4 years working for Ford, I came to the conclusion that I need to improve that motion, and one of the best way to do so, is to go back to school. It shows that I’m stirring the motion with a spoon and soon I know a change will come and I will float to a new shining direction. Getting good is a tough decision but also very rewarding. It’s a key to the next phase in our life and we shall use this key when we choose to make a move close to our goal.
Giving up is the last word in my vocabulary. Sometimes life puts you in a corner and forces you to give up. One should remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Nobody says the journey will be easy but it’s worth trying. Obstacles are those frighten things you see when you remove your eyes from your goals. Staying positive and keeping your smile when you feel like life is giving up on you, is the only way to face your trials and tribulations. One word of advice:If you are trying to stay good, and always looking for opportunities to get good then you will never find yourself in the land of giving up.
