How can I become better today?
This is the question I ask myself every morning. There is nothing more important for me that to be a little better today than I was yesterday.
I used to believe that you had to be chosen to get what you wanted in life. That you were born to be rich. That you were born to be a great football player. That you were born to be the president. I no longer think it’s true. I think that you can get pretty much anything you want. Under one condition. That you are willing to work very hard for it. I believe that it’s more about discipline than anything else. No. To answer your question, I could never be a musician. I love music. But I could never make music no matter how much time I would spend on trying. But don’t make it complicated, I would never tell you that I dream or I wanted to be a musician. It’s not in my heart. It’s not part of my DNA. But there is something else in my heart. It’s deep and it often seems unreasonable. So we discount it, or dismiss it. And we settle for average. We settle for normal. I this is what I can’t stand. Wasted potential. I know that they are people who are work somewhere for someone and are happy. Good for them. And from my whole heart I wish them the very best. But the rest of us. Us who are stuck in a job we don’t like just because we have to make money. Just because we have responsibilities. That’s what I can’t stand. I was in that position for years. I knew there was more. But I couldn’t describe it. I couldn’t tell you exactly what it was. I even liked my job, but I knew it wasn’t it. I needed more. But I did’t know to get it. I didn’t even know what it was. I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know if it was possible. I didn’t know if I had what it took. So I settled. I thought that I had no choice. I settled for average. I settled for what everyone was doing. Living for the weekends. the thing is that my heart couldn’t stand it. I was trying to convince myself that this is the job I needed because I kind of liked it, and it paid well and I had responsibilities to fulfill, family to take care of. But the thing is that all of this is a lie. Ot’s a lie we tell ourselves so we don’t have to take action. We don’t have to do the hard things. But it’s not right. You as well as me are here to do the very best we can. I broke out of that prison. And, if you are looking for something more, as I was, I want to help you to get it. More than that. I’ll do anything I can to help you to get it. Today I know that it’s possible. It can be incredibly hard, but it’s possible. You don’t have to be who you are, you can be what you were meant to be.

Austin Kleon said, Share Your Work. I decided to follow his advice. Just to see if he is right. 😉 Mainly, I write on this website to organize my thoughts. I also hope that it will help my kids to gain a perspective that I lacked or should have when I was 20. I also hope that it may help you.
I would like to turn ideas into stories. I would like to inspire. Create. Growth.
