Do you have a goal in life?
AS I sat down and wrote down this little short note, the first thing that came to my mind was “what do you want in life?”, and I thought about it for a little while (maybe for a minute or so). My answer to that question was simple and straight forward; I want success and nothing else.
What I know is that almost everyone in life wants success, except criminals of course.
Criminals according to my understanding, are people without a purpose in life, except stealing and doing all the bad things, people that do not think of tomorrow but only today, anyway that’s not where I am.
What I am trying to say is that we all have a dream or a goal in our daily lives that one day we wish to fulfill, but the main question that stays is that “how do I fulfill those dreams or goals that I want to achieve one day in my life”. Well the answer to that is quite simple “work hard”.
Yes, work hard, by working hard it does not literally mean being behind a desk in an office, even when studying you are working.
Normally, we as students tend to think that when you are a rich and a spoilt brat, you will get all you want in life you might get all you want now but believe me there will be a time when all those things you want in life won’t just come.
Why? Because right now we have parents who have worked hard to have what they have now and that they live the life they want.
When your parents die, they will never say “my dear child I am leaving you those certificates of mine, because I will no longer need them”. No, be warned he or she will also die with them.
So don’t just sit there and relax and enjoy the good life sooner or later the good life shall end. It might not be now, but eventually it will happen.
Have a goal right now and stop enjoying what is not rightfully yours, what is rightfully yours is yet to come, only if you work for it.
Let’s all have a goal to achieve one day. Except that you will never know which direction you are heading to.
One might ask “how do I have a goal in life?” Well that’s easy “what do you want in life?”
Do you want to be known as that someone who was once rich, because of his or her parents ‘s money or do you want to be known as that person who worked very hard to have what he or she wanted.
Even if you were once known as that boy or girl who could purchase anything in the school tuck shop, that is not your money, work hard and stop fooling us, saying that you have got money. But mostly I
think you are fooling yourself.
Ladies and gents, let’s work for our own things not things that are passed from one generation to another, maybe it’s time to also take charge.
The late South African President Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon, you can use to change the world.”
I couldn’t agree more, but today kindly allow me to twist those words a little by saying: “Working hard is the most powerful weapon, you can use to change yourself.”
Allow me to finish my note by saying, let’s all work hard and have goals that one day we all wish to see succeeding, not depending on other people ‘s achievements. I hope it is just as I said it is, “a little note”.
