Been quite busy with work and the business on the side, but thought it would be a great time to write something. I have been doing alot of things that have been on my mind, but putting a stopage on somethings that brought joy to my life. The one in particular is racing, mainly autoxing, but still a joy. This particular thrill is a classic case of the 80/20 rule, where you race your vehicle through a course for 20% of the time at the event, while the other 80% you are preparing the car, waiting until you start, or talking to new and old friends. However, when you are racing you put more than 80% of your concentration on driving. Well that is besides the point, but the main point of this whole discussion is about losing passion of something you love while learning new and exciting things.
Well one video that brought inspiration and joy to my heart is called F1 perished heroes; view here.
The video brought back the desire to race again, but more importantly the love for life that all of the racers that died. These men didn’t fear anything and I know if they would have been given that same moment in time where it was their last they wouldn’t change one bit of it. They trained hard throughout their lives to get to that very stage to show their families, people who doubted them, and the world that this was their mission in life and that there was nothing no one could do to take their passion away.
So I challenge you to think for sometime to see what your passion is in life and also methodically come up with steps to experience that passion.
If you are the minority of the majority then you are screwed. Well sorta! People think that you are crazy because you want more meaning out of life and that you don’t want anyone to write your own destiny. Well in my case I am witnessing how people really are and seeing who believes in what I am doing as taking hold of Life. So this foundation of this blog I am going to let everyone know that I am ENTREPRENEUR and will always be.
The reasons are this:
1) Ever since I have been growing up I like the fact that I did things the way I wanted to. However, I did listen to people on the way that wanted the best for me. However, as I have been in my 20’s I have really noticed people telling me what is best for me and giving me reasons why. I am now a person of reason and do things if and when I want to because I want to. People telling me who to marry, to go back to school to get more education, people telling me to never give up my day job, and so on. Fuck that, I will listen, analyze the situation, take it for what it is worth, and in the end do what I feel like doing for myself.
2) As I think about my life when I was a little kid I really didn’t know what I wanted to be. I really didn’t think of something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I was simply a Toys R US kid, “I never want to grow up”. That is still true to this day, I don’t want to grow up into other people’s creation. For the longest I wanted to be in the NBA, and kept on practicing and then just got lazy. But still I was happy to be a kid and loved life. But I still had no clue of what I wanted to do and for some odd reason I didn’t look ahead into my 60’s. The reason why I say this is because I couldn’t see myself doing one job for 40 years. I guess the reason was because my parents constantly did different jobs and wasn’t born around that kind of atmosphere.
3) This last point will probaly shock some people but this is the truth of the matter which I realized at the beginning of the year. What I want to do in Life cannot happen in my current career path. This is because my life plan is not determined by my career path. The true persons that I am are an inventor, thinker, compassionate for other people, adventurous, stays outside the box, driven, and open to new ideals, personality, and concerns of the world.

My head is spinning out of control and don’t know what to do. So i will do the simplest thing and just stop. Yep, thinking about doing can make you go crazy and it is not worth my sanity. Thinking is probaly the biggest thing that gets people for not doing what they really do. Over analyzing situations can really kill someone. Hell I think it is more worse than not doing anything, because at least you know that you want to do something, but don’t because you are thinking. Alot of people may think that this is a simple concept and it really is, but the majority of those people don’t do shit about it also. The reason why is because of habit. People want to change, but don’t because they are satisfied with the habit. It is alot harder do actually do something new because it is new. That is why so many people don’t meet new new people, lose weight if they wanted to, travel around the world, or hell just do anything that they say they would.
So now is the time. No time is like now. Because you don’t know if you will have tomorrow and hell there is no more reasons to make another shameless mistake of just thinking and not doing.
