It's been a long week with report submissions and prepping for my final internship evaluation and the worst part is i miss my blog dearly. I miss writing something close to heart since I have been balled up in technical writing for the past few days and I'm super glad its going to be over soon. I was thinking on what to write as my next blog post and I had the best idea! This!
Yes! You might not achieve it now, but eventually, you will. Don't we all put in effort for the things we want most? Some of us really try hard to achieve a lot of things in a short span of time. Me on the other hand as well as some of you might agree, that we have so much yet to accomplish in this world but there is so little time. Makes me sad sometimes. But it makes me even more determined.
They always say hard work will always pay off. If not now, maybe sooner. Sooner than we think? But how soon is soon? I don't know. But I do know that somehow the law of the universe helps us. Us, as in those who constantly do the right things and put in the right amount of effort at the right time. Its all about timing anyhow, right? Definitely timing and a lot of determination as well as discipline. Wow, I am talking as if I have achieved a lot already. Nahh, just words of advice that I felt I needed at some point of my life too and here I am to share it with those of you who need it.
Its painful to see those who have worked so hard but have not gotten what they want yet. But then again, how do you measure hard work? Its different for each person and we all have our own definitive terms of what it means to achieve something in life. One thing for sure, although many may occasioanlly think life is unfair at times, life gives us what we deserve. Maybe being a person who is always hard working and always determined is somehow weighing a toll on you, not to mention draining your energy, and slowly making you feel demotivated? I think we have all been there and gone through that too. But somehow we find silver linings in the obstacles we go through. Don't we?
So I guess its safe to say that, hard work = pain = success. Sometimes we have to make big decisions and sacrifices in our lives to achieve the things we want most. We all know who or where we want to be ten years down the road. Or maybe ten years is too way down the road, heck! even I don't know the answer to that yet. But lets say five years? Easier right? Yes, you could go with the flow and when someone comes up to you and asks you, "Hey! Where do you see yourself in five years?", and you'll be like, "Yeah, I'm just gonna go with the flow man". A totally normal reaction and I even I say that too. But deep down, you know where you will be, who you are at that point of time and who will be there supporting.
So whatever it is, your hopes, goals and dreams, they are going to take time. But never take time for granted. Work on it, even if its the little things. Continue to strive and always be keen to seek valuable information that will help you shape your dreams into reality.
I think this is my longest article to date. But hey! words of advice always come in handy don't they? Tell me what you think in the comments below!
