It’s a flash of insight.
A realization that no one is going to help us.
It is the moment when we know it is time to take charge of our own destinies.
It is somewhat liberating or perhaps somewhat frightening.
- No one but you have to make the next deal.
- No one but you have to write the next line of code.
- No one but you have to write the next blog post.
I had my first such moment about two years ago. Life has been very different since then. No matter what I do, such moments come frequently. Perhaps to make me aware that time is passing away fast. To nudge me towards being good in my art and making a bigger contribution.
The concept is very simple. A little stupid since most people don’t realize this. They are waiting for a miracle.
“The more effort you put in to live your art, the more happy and skilled you are.”
There is no other way. True joy of life is doing each task we get creatively. This is difficult. Sometimes our heart does not allow us to. Hearts sometimes don’t like to work.
But such moments jolt us into doing the right thing and making the correct decision.
Trolls get Weaker
You stop the blame game and excuses game.
You know whatever has passed has passed. The time that has gone is over.
Trolls don’t affect you. You hear them but know they are not important. It is you who has to take the next step. No point bucking down to trolls.
Recognizing Opportunity in the Moment
There is no escape. If you don’t do it, you don’t grow. You miss an opportunity to contribute to the world.
The world needs people who can make it awesome. You need opportunities to contribute your awesomeness.
Live in the moment. Grab the chances that come along. Show your art. Do. Initiate. Lead.
Acknowledge the moment of truth. You are awesome.
