You Are More

Saturday, March 21, 2015
Do you ever just feel like fate is cruel to you? Or did you ever think that you were made with more disadvantages compared to others? Well let me tell you something, we were all made in different ways. We were all sent here for a reason. We were made to be special, to be unique and to make a difference. Never let anyone tell you that you are less. 

Do you remember how as little kids (or even until now) we watched Disney movies? These Disney movies taught us that we are truly somebody special, that we can do amazing things if only we tried hard enough. Sure, dreaming is one thing, but JUST dreaming will not exactly get you to your goal, you really have to work for it. Make sure you have the passion and motivation to get there. 

There was this certain movie that really inspired me. Remember Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University? He was bullied as a child just because he was small and that “he did not belong” in the scaring world, and it was even his dream to become the best scaring monster there was. In the end, he eventually proved them all wrong. He really did something to achieve his goals. Yes, it did take quite a long time until he reached the Scare Team, but it’s just how it is. In the end, it was fulfilling and worth it. What I’ve learned from Mike is that you shouldn't let anything stop you from achieving your goals. If you listen to all the people trying to pull you down, even consider it as a “compliment” because it just means that they are jealous and they’ve that realised that you will get there. Don’t let them dictate the flow of your life. It is your life and nothing can stop you from getting to your goal. 

Although, there may be some scenarios wherein your loved ones/people you trust are telling you that this certain goal is getting out of hand, and you really have to listen to them and think it through, maybe it is something you really have to think about. 


Nevertheless, we are all humans and we all make mistakes.  We just have to learn from them to achieve our dreams.
