The wake up call
There are wake up calls in our life whether if it is to wake up us in the morning or to wake us up to be on our feet again. This year is proven to be a very challenging year for all of us and many of us are trying to find ways to improve our life. But many did not make the first steps not to mention ever make it to the first base until at one stage we realize that we have let time passed us so much but still in the same situation as we were years ago. Until one day we hear a wake up call, some kind of a bell or someone knocking at your door that you need to take some action. What should we do? Are we going to stay here at the same ground and doing the same old routine again and again only to know that tomorrow we will still wondering why we are still in the same situation.
This is the same situation happening to many people in this world, in fact it is happening to some 80% of the world population. The world itself is the system created by man so that they stay in their comfort zone. But what are actually comfort zones. Are they really comfort or just some zones that guarantee us some food for the day and at the end of the day we just say thank you. We sleep and prepare ourselves for the next day. It has been this way for years and generation and this has become a tradition that our parents have followed and their parents. No doubt that there are successful people who are following the same formula but made it to be successful and that is the case of the very small number of the people who decided to take the different kind of approach and route to success.
Yes, today was my wake up call. I was in Singapore last year attending to a seminar by Anthony Robbins the guru of motivation. The reason was very obvious that I needed a change in my life. I am tired of the 9 to 5 job that I am doing now and I needed some kind of motivation from someone like Anthony Robbins to push me to get started. We may think that for someone like Anthony Robbins to start something big is not a big deal because he is Anthony Robbins and has written best selling books and his ideas are accepted by millions and being practice by top successful people in the world.
Maybe that was the greatest wall that we need to break, the feeling of afraid, the feeling that we cannot make it and tons of negative feelings. If make those feelings exist then those feelings is going to be there and become our worse enemies.
One of the greatest mentor I came across is Robert Kiyosaki the author of the best selling book Rich Dad Poor Dad. The day I landed my hand on the book, I just continue to read it until I finished the whole book in 2 days. It was a real eye opener for me. That was the time I realized that so much mistakes has been done throughout our life that we continue to live in our life that we live today without knowing the fact that we have all the power and opportunity in the world to change things. We go to school and learned the wrong things, so that we we go to college and get a degree we are able to find a good job and have family. That in turn will make us slave to our job and started thinking that we have to work in order to make a living. That statement itself is all wrong. Imagine there are millions of people in the world that are thinking like this and yet many failed to take action or even to think of making an action. Simply because of the mindset that has been planted in our mind for years that to make a living we need to do it the way most people do. Get a degree and work for a company and earn some salary just enough for the mortgage and your daily expenses.
Until one day when you wake up in the morning you realized that things are not right and you are at the checking point of your life and need some big change. Maybe the wake up call just arrived.
