…..those thoughts came into my mind while taking pictures of the lunar eclipse.
Meaning: Don’t wait until something happens - Make it happen!
Eclipse, it's exciting. What a feeling! So strange.
For pictures: boring.
The next day you see all over the internet a photo of a red moon.
They look all the same, mostly. So….. I made my own version of the eclipse.
I was so happy when that plane came into my frame.
Must have been an amazing view up there.
Today I signed up for the gym. Again.
Many years I have been “dreaming” to get a perfect body.
A few times, it seemed I am getting there.
But you know….. “only an exception, just one” or “tomorrow I will go”
Those exceptions turned into habits. The worst one is “tomorrow”. There is no f**king tomorrow!
Either you DREAM or you DO.
There are many reasons I want a perfect body.
Not only you look and feel better, but also you get healthier on the way to your goal.
But the best of all is:
To look in the mirror and say: I beat you David, I won!
The biggest battle in your life, is the one with yourself.
If you can win against yourself, you can achieve anything!
Every human sees life and situations different.
We experience what is right in front of us with a filter.
Also, what we see takes time to get to our brain.
It’s very fast, but still there is a delay.
What we see in front of us is actually the past.
So then how can reality exist?
We see everything through a filter and delayed.
It’s a distortion.
So how can reality exist if we can’t experience it?
You know often in life what people do or not do, makes you wonder:
There is not always an explanation about people’s actions.
And sometimes people do strange things, because they are insecure or want to manipulate you.
It’s not about you. It’s about them. Whatever the truth is, I want to choose to believe the most positive version of a situation.
We don’t know the truth why people do what they do.
Sometimes we are even wrong with our assumptions about a situation.
Our brains tend to look more for the negative, to protect us.
But we have a choice!
Every time, we are faced with a situation, where we don’t know the truth behind someone’s action, we can choose the most positive explanation!
Better to think positive and be proven wrong.
Then to think negative and to be proven wrong.
That is a better protection! With that way of thinking, the insecurity of other people doesn’t infect us.
And if you always choose the most positive version of any situation, you take away the power of any manipulator.
A manipulator has power over you, if you are unsure and doubting.
If you think the most positive version of any action/inaction, you win.
What is the secret to success?
Talent, intelligence, hard work, luck and connections?
Those things are a great setup. A guaranty for success?
Something is missing. The most important:
Did you ever think that you could break a glass with a small dice?
I threw those dices many times in the glass.
After 20 times it broke.
I threw it few more times. More damage.
Such small dices can break a glass!
How? With persistence.
You are that small dice.
And you can make the impossible, possible.
By being persistent.
That’s what I thought when I went to take pictures of my boat.
Fantasizing about who would come with me on a trip.
AND then: After a few shots, I noticed: there is a passenger!
Wow! I positioned the boat at different places to get the best shot.
The passenger did not move. Probably the insect enjoyed the ride.
So, I left the boat there.
Bon Voyage my friend!
