If there were ever a time to dare…

18 Mar

I think in my former life I was a writer, a published author. Dreaming? probably! scary? Very.

Appropriated from the twitter page of Dumisani Mahlangu (www.twitter.com/dumirocks)

Why do I believe this assertion you may wonder. I believe this assertion to be true because I am an avid reader, and there is an established notion that writers are religious readers. It is not my intention to state that I am a religious reader, but I am an avid reader nonetheless.

I am one person who prefers to read a book than watching a boring program on tell-lie-vision [Television].

One of this lazy days while reading a book I stumbled upon a line that moved my soul and continues to inspire me greatly to this age. Let me take a liberty of quoting it in its entirety and hope that it inspires you to follow your dream and aspirations.

If you follow the Apple brand and its beauty inventions you might know the quote. If you don know it it is not a train smash. relax, grab a beer and continue reading this post.

The quote below is adapted in its entirety from a Macintosh computer ad, 1991. Read it and on a comment box below, tell me what moves your soul. Stay inspired…

If there were ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily- but for something that tugs at your heart, something that’s your aspiration, something that’s your dream.

You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
Have fun.
Dig Deep.
Stretch.
Dream big.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

Persist.

Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart guide you.

Trust.

Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.

The start of something new brings the hope of something great.
Anything is possible.
There is only one you.

And you will pass this way only once.
