So today I listened to Tom Barret’s Dare to Dream and I remember he asked: what’s love got to do with it?
It got me thinking. Lots of time we say: ‘I don’t like my job’, ‘I don’t like this course’, ‘I don’t like my salary its too small’, ‘I want to make more but I hate that im not that business oriented, I hate figures’, ‘I have soo many dreams, hopes & aspirations’, ‘I love my wife but things aren’t just working out between us’, ‘I would love to be a millionaire’, ‘I would love to move my family from a flat to a duplex’, and the list goes on.
But the question is: what’s love got to do with it? Answer: Nothing. You hate your job? I can assure you that its not the reason you don’t get promoted. Look around you, you find others who do not also like the job but are excelling at it.
You love your wife? Many people do but rarely talk to their wives these days. Love helps but its the work you put in that builds the relationship.
You love nice cars but can’t afford them? Get to work. You have to work harder than those who own nice cars. You don’t get things you love just because you love them, you have to earn them.
You don’t like the course you are studying? Either change courses or work harder than the best in your class. You don’t have to love a course to be the best graduating student, that award goes to those who held on throughout the semester, who read when others were having fun.
When I am sick, I take drugs. And I can assure you “I hate drugs” but what I love isn’t going to make me better.
You have dreams you want to achieve? Then you have to work towards those dreams. If you don’t work, they will always remain dreams. Yes! Dreams
It’s even in the Bible: as a man sows, so shall he reap. Mind you, it didn’t say ‘as a man dreams, so shall it be’.
Thats why I repeat: Whats Love got to do with it? And I answer again: Nothing.
Lots of love people! !!
