Have you ever asked yourself what’s stopping you from being happy or from getting the things that you want? What are the right choices that we need to make in order to find our place in the universe?! Is it that we don’t know what we want or is it sometimes a matter of money?
If you are my age( around 18) you are pretty familiar with the fact that it’s high time you found out what you want to do with your life and what kind of person you want to become. You start thinking about what you can do best and ask yourself if you can turn your hobby into a lucrative career. If you are lucky, maybe you will. But you cannot depend on luck, not when the risk is that big. Than you face the biggest question that has been tortured you since forever. Do i want to earn a lot of money and indulge myself in the material or do i want to follow my heart and do the thing i am most passionate about?
There is no “right” or “wrong” answer. Every answer,though, has its consequences. Let’s say you choose to pursue a career you don’t like, but that will bring you a lot of money. Probably your first thoughts will be: “How can you succeed and get a lot of money from a job that you are not good at. If you don’t guess the answer i will help you- by becoming someone else, by becoming something else. You will lie, cheat, manipulate, blackmail and do whatever it takes to get what you want no matter the cost. You may say that this can be a pretty hard work and maybe even impossible, but you will be surprise of what people are willing to do for something they want so badly. And if you finally do reap success will it be really worth it? With all the sacrifices, the damage you made and the casualties will you be able to sleep at night?
The problem about this choices is that you cannot tell if you made the right or the wrong one when it’s not too late. You have to experience your new life and see the “ups” and “downs” of it. If you choose to be rich, but heartless will you ever be able to forgive yourself about the things you have done and earn the love of your friends and family? And if you pick the one thing you do best that makes you happy and alive, will it really bring you the things that you want and need or will it be just a distraction from the reality.
No matter if we become wealthy, but roofless or insist on our talent, but realize this won’t bring us neither money nor security, we should consider ourselves lucky. We are alive and healthy and we are capable of making whatever choices we want. There are a lot of people that are not given the opportunity to do that. Maybe everything is a matter of money or maybe it is a matter of choices, but either way we should always keep in mind that the best way to make a choice is to follow your instincts, because they will always show you the right way.
