Everyone just wants validation, love, security, enjoyment and hopes for a better future. The way they verbalise this and work towards it is where things branch off, but we all have the same basic desires. You can relate to everyone in the world if you look past the superficial things that separate you.
Even if I face difficulties relating myself to the next wannabe Zuckerberg, with at least one iPhone, iMac, iPod, iPad and anything with “I” in front. You can watch everything from a different angle. Fact is that since I am freelancing and getting into my entrepreneurial stuff, I make much less money than in my corporate times, but I am a far happier person. Before that I thought that I could not do it. Lets say that I set some priorities. 🙂
All the quotes in this post are taken from an inspiration shared by a good friend and disruptive mind extraordinaire, on the largest social network tool of today aka Facebook. Meeting him changed the way I see life.
Nothing special: Just applied the «Just f*****g do it»- mentality and we do a refreshment in one of the cities we are, just because life lessons take their time sometimes and we share a love for traveling. So, take it your time and enjoy. As the change started to have its first effects, I met another disruptive and balanced mind, in who I saw parts of the me I wanted to be. Did I write, I wanted…Application Nr.2. Mindblowing as well, I have to admit. Lets say they made me crack my hidden life code and see all the things I could not see till then or see them differently.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from living in countries that are more “easy going” it’s that they are way wiser than the rest of us in their pace of life. People and countries that do everything quicker also do it worse. Take it easy and go slowly.
Talking about life, it means to do one step, jump, move at the time, no matter how big or small, but one. The multitasking, multidoing at one time, might not let you live and enjoy the process. Just saying that you do not need not to watch your mobile while talking to a friend and get off this screens. Honestly.
Stop thinking so much and act. People think their way out of doing everything that’s worth doing in life.
That was life lesson Nr.3. Being a philosopher in theory is interesting, but it is exciting if you put your theory into your way of living. Which brings us to:
The most important lessons in life can never be expressed in black and white, but must be experienced. They have to discover it themselves over time or just continue believing what they do. Don’t take responsibility for convincing the world you are right. It’s important to acknowledge that maybe you are actually the wrong one.
Maybe the hardest thing you face while putting your dreams into reality, is to engage others, to make them part of it. If you really care about this tiny detail, you will find a way to speak their language and listen to first rather than talking and then you might act together.
P.S. Tribute to some of the most amazing people I shared moments of the past six months. Nice to have you around ladies and gentlemen. 🙂
