If You are Passionate About Something, Find a way to get it Done

Many people wake around with dreams waiting for someone else to give them the opportunity to make that dream become a reality. However I say if you are passionate about something, you find a way to get it done.

So often people blame others for their failures rather than accept the fact that they did not try hard enough. It is not the job of others to make you succeed or make you plan work out. It is up to you to act with a sense of maturity and passion and pursue  that which you aim to achieve. It may be tempting to blame others but you will never achieve true success unless you take responsibility and realize that it is up to you to make your dream come true.

Thought For Today

“Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you…it means that you do not treat your body as a commodity with which to purchase superficial intimacy or economic security; for our bodies to be treated as objects, our minds are in mortal danger. It means insisting that those to whom you give your friendship and love are able to respect your mind. It means being able to say, with Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre: “I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all the extraneous delights should be withheld or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.
Responsibility to yourself means that you don’t fall for shallow and easy solutions–predigested books and ideas…marrying early as an escape from real decisions, getting pregnant as an evasion of already existing problems. It means that you refuse to sell your talents and aspirations short…and this, in turn, means resisting the forces in society which say that women should be nice, play safe, have low professional expectations, drown in love and forget about work, live through others, and stay in the places assigned to us. It means that we insist on a life of meaningful work, insist that work be as meaningful as love and friendship in our lives. It means, therefore, the courage to be “different”…The difference between a life lived actively, and a life of passive drifting and dispersal of energies, is an immense difference. Once we begin to feel committed to our lives, responsible to ourselves, we can never again be satisfied with the old, passive way.”
― Adrienne Rich
