You can look at life from two angles. It can be a series of unexpected, challenging, unorthodox, unconventional, full of surprises, turbulent and totally random experiences. Or you can choose to look at it as a predestined, unavoidable, mundane, routine, non committed and totally unlucky set of outcomes.
There are many choices that we can make in life, and most of the times, the consequences and effects can be so widely random. If you choose to be great, it is so much easier to design your own path to greatness, such that being alone is no longer a privilege, but rather, an expensive state of life to be in.
Most of us think that our state of life can be better. Some believe it should be better. A handful insist it must be better. One or two might think that their life is the best to lead. No one is right and everyone is definitely not wrong. So where does that leave you and me?
I think life is already better. If we wake up tomorrow, it is definitely better than staying dead tomorrow and realizing it has to happen today. Or, when we get hungy and we eat. It is definitely better than walking on an empty tank. Or, when we realize that better is a state of mind rather than the fulfillment of materialistic destiny.
Sometimes people hate my guts, for blantanly writing posts that seem to undermine their level of success. They love pinning the tag of underachiever on me, as a means of exerting their superiority complex on me. Their unfounded siege mentallity, of me versus them, has been eating away at their ego. Which is sad, because I feel misunderstood.
The truth is, I enjoy success. I enjoy materialistic wealth. I love being synonymous with the tag of high fliers. I love the zeal and freedom of leading a fulfilling life.
But I do not wish to be a hypocrite in my chase for them.
