Have you ever been in the position of doing what you don’t want to do with every fiber of your being, but you do it anyway because LIFE JUST HAPPENS REGARDLESS?
Have you ever weighed the pros and cons of continuing on a self-effacing trajectory, all the while feeling the excoriating pain of your soul, spirit, mind, and body being obliterated beyond recognition?
Perhaps it hasn’t been that bad, but you are able to relate to this predicament to some degree. To all of you in this situation or similar, please take an ICP moment to pause, step back, breathe, and reflect. No seriously, pause. Carve out a sliver of peaceful solitude amidst the cacophony around you.
This is perhaps one of the most challenging things you will be asked to do because, as Newton’s First Law of Motion states (and I paraphrase), a body in motion/rest remains in motion/rest until an external force changes its course accordingly. Let this be your virtual external force to CHANGE YOUR COURSE. It will be worth your time, I promise.
Some of the greatest inventions in the world have come from inventors persevering through failure. Most inventions are the product of ‘outside the box’ thinking whereby the inventor decided to CHANGE COURSE or better yet, DEFY IT. Regardless of the number of failed attempts to create the impossible, those inventors were successes because they knew no other way of being. Their drive to create was a manifestation of their being. It was in their blood.
Accordingly, ICP asks you:
What is in your blood?
What is your passion…real passion…that you can’t live without?
How much longer must you wait before you realize your passion? How many more years are you going to waste away? How much more self-punishment can you take?
What will it take for you to take the leap and believe in yourself?
It all begins with the singularity of a seed along a Planck Length to realize you have already succeeded at the moment of your leap…
