Many times I look at my goals and ask myself whether my goal is realistic or accessible for me. It’s a good question to ask as it lets me assess how I plan to get there but often times, it is a doubt that I have put on myself. Through my doubt and my insecurity I have put a limitation on where I feel I belong.
We are all human; yes even those in government and on the television screen. And a lot of them went through hard times just as you have. But, what made them a household name or name in the office they are in was a drive to be successful. A drive to be a success in their field. A drive to dedicate more than 8 hours a day on their work or draft. They said to themselves, “I am worth it and I will work until I have reached my goal.” No self doubt of whether they were meant to be there or if they could achieve it; they went for it regardless.
Tell yourself you are enough. Tell yourself it’s possible for you just as it was for them. Throw away all the self doubt and insecurity; it’s only holding you back from pushing harder and really believing you deserve it When you believe that nothing is impossible, everything will be possible and so much more.
I just loved this video I came across on YouTube. Sparsh is a 13-year old child prodigy, singer/song writer/rapper born with brittle bones (130+fractures), but an unbreakable spirit. He wants to show people how they can transcend every difficulty that comes their way in life and how they can start a chain reaction to be a guide for other people who want to turn their life around as well. He became a worldwide internet sensation with his Purhythm versions of Eminem covers. He aspires to inspire and sing in front of a billion people one day. Sparsh has been learning Hindustani classical music for the last seven-and-a-half years and American vocal music for the last three years. Sparsh is multi-talented. He performs at community events and has appeared on local radio stations and television shows, besides hosting shows as an MC. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
