Today I’m going to address the difference between talent and hard work. Most people realize that there’s a difference but somehow they can’t get the true meaning behind the quote. You probably don’t believe me but I’m going to share a story that will make you facepalm when I’ll reveal the plot. So I was training with a buddy and he asked if a girl whom he knew could join us. I agreed so she joined us not long after I’d agreed. We were both quickly extremely surprised that she wanted to talk all the time. It didn’t seem like she wanted to train at all. She was looking for attention and it got frustrating. She was constantly claiming that she couldn’t do anything and asked for advice on how to do it.
I learned some valuable lessons after a series of injuries. So it’s safe to say that I turned something bad into something good and that’s an art. Most people feel devastated when they realize that they’ve got an injury. They can’t cope with the thought that they’ll be out for a while but it’s actually not the fact that they can’t train that stings. It’s the fact that they suddenly have tons of spare time and they have no clue how to use it. It’s all sad but it’s all true as well.
Tomorrow there will be a new day and most people are always counting on tomorrow. Most people are professional procrastinators and they’ll delay some of the most important tasks in their life so they’ll never get it done. These people are basically wasting precious time because they’re neglecting the fact that they’re going to die. I mean they assume that they will be able to start tomorrow but will you really be able to do it? You’ll never know when the reaper will visit you. Most people are postponing all their dreams and goals. There are multiple reasons for this behavior. They’re stuck in their comfort zone and they’re stuck in a rut. Those people are the endless victims in life because they don’t get the power of now.
Forgiveness is an act that isn’t familiar to most people, they all prefer to hold grudges. Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness … never forget the word and you’ll have a much better life.
Always forgive but never forget is a saying that contains a lot of truth. Never forget what happened, in others words you should learn from the fact where it went wrong and implement this into your life. If you never forgive and always forget you’ll find life extremely unpleasant since you’ll make the same mistake over and over again. I just described you dating life didn’t I?
Respect is an unknown word to most people. People like to forget how to have respect. I realized this soon enough after I visited a foreign country. I quickly noticed that people like to give bullshit excuses to talk about the fact that they’re not respectful. Even acts like racism show that you can’t respect other people. It’s a shame that people forget how to act in a respectful way but it’s never too late to change.
We need to make choices every minute of the day. Most people don’t realize that these small choices are part of a bigger picture and that bigger picture is your lifestyle. It all adds up after a while and most people are horrible at making the right decision. People will always choose the most comfortable option and they’re surprised that they can’t get anything done. They eat tons of bad foods but complain that dieting is so hard. It’s your own fault that you’re not losing weight and you know it. You made the choice to eat nothing but crap so you’ll end up looking like crap. But there are more bad choices that people are making these days.
Most people like to showboat with a degree or even multiple degrees. You’ll come across as really smart, well at least according to our society. It’s actually a bit funny that people need a piece of paper to prove that they’re smart. Someone gives you a piece of paper while it’s possible that you’ve cheated to pass every test. So you can be extremely dumb but 99% of the people will say that you’re smart. How stupid is that? It sounds a bit dumb doesn’t it? People with a degree have also a higher change to be forgiven extremely quickly. He’s an alcoholic but he has 3 degrees so it’s alright. She doesn’t do shit with her life and constantly hurts people but she’s almost an engineer so it’s all fine.
Do you read books? Most people will say no since they assume that it’s a waste of time. These people prefer to watch reality shows instead of reading a quality book and they’re surprised when they can’t get their life in order. But this kind of behavior comes with a price and you’ll pay it at one point in your life. You will get dumb and dumber as time progresses. Most people don’t seem to get it but you will lose your brain capacity if you’re not using it. My grandfather once told me that beauty is one of the worst traits that you can have. He was right you know. We all grow old and less attractive even the ones with cover model looks. Besides, you will achieve nothing in life if you’re not smart.
Most people have drunk personalities and they just seem to accept it. They’ve never wondered why they’re behaving like this and I can imagine that they don’t want to do it as well. Drunk personalities are interesting in my opinion. It’s because some people just become a whole different person when they’re not sober. I’m not talking about their wobbly way of walking and the fact that they need to puke every 3 seconds. I’m talking about how people behave when they’re drunk. I had my fair share of alcohol in the past but I stopped drinking this summer. I didn’t see the point in consuming it anymore. Suddenly I reached a point where I was happy with myself.
Most people don’t understand the value of the process. They’re solely focused on the end result and they fall into the trap of life after that. I’ll give you an accurate example later on in this article. The process is the most addictive part for me to be honest. You know what I like the most about it? The fact that you need macro patience to get micro results. You can’t have what you want all at once. It takes time and it might even take you years to accomplish what you want.
Most people want it now and aren’t that patient at all. They play the lottery to get rich instead doing what they really should do. It’s all a trap to ease your lazy mind and that’s what most people don’t seem to get. The lottery will make you win a lot of money but you’ll lose everything else.
