I just saw an interview with Rita Wilson who was on the Ellen Show. She is in her fifties and had recently made her debut as a singer.
I found a few things during her interview which are quite inspiring!
She talked about that there is no reason to be limited by anything and that she asks people what is the one thing that they loved as a kid, because life can sidetrack you, with “my parents want me to study this” and I have to get this job because of this and that” However you will never lose the sense of passion of what you love to do. And I think what she means is that people should remember to live out their passions.
Maybe some people will say “remember that not everything is possible and that you have to be realistic too” to what Rita Wilson had to say, but isn’t possible that some people are being way too realistic???
Have a wonderful Saturday 🙂
Today I got a call from my dad. He told me to act like this and that as people will think best of me if I did so. I notice that the older I get the more difficult it is for me to suppress this sensational irritating feeling inside me, but no matter what I always end up with saying “Yes dad”
So I have given it some thoughts about how this has effected me as a grown up…
Well… this has most certainly made me think of others before I act on something, like if I do this and that how will it look to other people. So is this a good or bad habit?
For me it has been both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because of a “good” reputation and a curse because “I” comes in second.
If you put yourself in second place long enough you will get frustrated! And I think that the frustrations finally got to me during last year. Living a life based on “what looks best”, is most certainly not fulfilling.
So what if people think that I am not that “great”, “polite”, “successful” or “clever”! What is the worse case of that?
Once again I would like to share a post regarding success.
I saw above picture which was posted on a friend’s facebook page, and it really does make sense to me.
I tend to be impatient. I want to start on something and the next step shall be reaching the goal. How ever, I often forget that Rome was not built in a day, and building it was not without obstacles. If we think like picture number 1 we will be very surprised when an obstacle is paying us a visit, worse case, we might even give up, if more than 1 obstacle is hitting us.
So again (a note to myself) like in the “Success(ful)” post, remember the small steps! Be patient and try to stay positive and focus on the goal!
I found these quotes which I would like to share with you guys :
Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won’t taste good. ~Joe Paterno
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. ~Winston Churchil
