When we talk about superheroes, names that cross our mind are Spider man, Batman, Superman, Dr. Strange (my recent favorite) and the names in the list continues. They are superheroes who save our world and our lives from the threat from the monsters and villains. But let me tell you, all these superheroes are in stories and fantasies not in the real world. The real superheroes for me in this real world are the personalities who are doing their best from their place to motivate and bring people from their lower mental and emotional mindset and motivate them to rise above their life challenges. Superheroes who have helped me while I was facing my hard time, are some motivational speakers like Lisa Nichols, Sandeep Maheshwari, Tony Robbins, Robin Sharma, and Oprah Winfrey. I have listened to, read them and have picked up myself from the rock bottom and discovered my great interest in expressing and writing through my heart. Not to forget some other modern superheroes who have saved my life from getting lost are You Tubers like Muchelleb, Lavendaire, Erin May Henry. When I was muddling in the maze of worldly expectation, peer pressure, self hatred; watching their YouTube videos showed me a new direction of life and I started working on my dream with confidence. I started giving time for my deep rooted love for creativity, expression, motivation which brought back my self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-love.
While on the verge of working on personal growth, I read a book by Robin Sharma, “The Monk who sold his Ferrari.” Let me share an excerpt from the book,
“This simple word seemed to carry a depth of meaning for them and it peppered their daily talk. The word I am speaking of is passion, and it is a word you must constantly keep at the forefront of your mind as you follow your mission and attain your goals. A burning sense of passion is the most potent fuel for your dreams. Here in our society, we have lost our passion. We do not do things because we love to do them. We do things because we feel we have to do them. This is the formula for misery. And I am not speaking of romantic passion, although this is another ingredient for a successful, inspired existence. What I am talking about is a passion for life. Reclaim the joy of waking up every morning full of energy and exhilaration. Breathe the fire of passion into all that you do. You will quickly reap great material, as well as spiritual rewards”.
While I was reading those sentences I felt that I have known this always but just needed to hear from someone else to realize what it actually meant. Whenever a great person talks about “the joy of waking up early morning full of energy and exhilaration” I realize this is what I have been pursing for and have not attained that yet. If you think you have attained that joy of waking up early with the passion for life and full of energy, let me tell you my friend you are successful in living a life that every human being craves for.
