This is far from talking about purpose or goals. Although, purpose and goals are very vital issues when it comes to success – Definitely purpose or goals can’t be ignored. Believe me, this is a more powerful concept. Have you ever asked yourself – “Why I’m I alive?”. For a moment, forget about what you want to become or achieve . Focus on one vital thing – “What do I really want to do with my life?”.
Although , this question might sound simple to you, but, I assure you, it is one of the biggest question you’ll ever ask yourself, if not the biggest. To me, several years ago,it was a monster question and till date, that question keeps me awake mentally. For a moment, forget the luxuries of the material world and focus on the luxury you were given to be among the living. Now , what do you want to do with this luxury? Although, you don’t know when you’ll die but if today was your last day on earth , what would you fight for?
Each time I ask myself this question, I know for sure that I’ve done nearly nothing to do what really matters to me. Most of the times , people would say to me – “Well-done, keep it up. You’re doing a great job!”. I love those comments. In fact I appreciate them a great deal but each time I’m given this comments or compliments, I whisper to myself – “I ain’t even started yet!”. That’s just the truth.
What matters to you the most on the inside? What would you love to see in the world? The answers I give to those questions is my DRIVE. What is your drive? As long as you breathe, what would you love to see happen? As long as you breathe , would you love to fight for greatness or settle for mediocrity? As long as you breathe, who would you love to fight for? As long as you breathe, do you still have the belief that you can turn your life around? As long as you breathe , will you keep to your self-imposed values or succumb to the societal values? Hey , as long as you breathe, are you willing to go do the extra while others simply do the casual? And as long as you breathe , are you willing to give your all to make your dreams happen? I strongly believe that our breathe is a priceless gift.
While it is good to cherish every moment, what are you willing to sacrifice for better moments? I believe we should see every moment as an opportunity to change our mindset and believe in something greater than us. As long as you breathe, do you wish to give others a breathe of sorrow or a breathe of hope? Your breathe as you read this piece is a certification that you’re alive, will the planet remember your name? Knowing your time on this planet is limited, why procrastinate? Why permit fear to hold you back? Why focus on hate? Why focus on losses? Why not take on your challenges? Why not fight for your meaning?
Where did this as-long-as-you-breathe message come from? It did come as an inspiration to me early this morning when I suddenly (Strangely) started to doubt myself, then I said to myself loudly – As long as I breathe , I will live my dreams. Feel free to say that to yourself every morning!
