Like Clockwork

Have you ever wondered why we need to go to school, why we need to work?

Of course, the answer to that question is “to make a living”. That’s it put simply. But, why?

Making a living, to most people, is earning money, being able to buy food and pay the bills. But to me, it’s something more than that. I take pleasure in helping others, as many have helped me over the years. I want to make  living not only to survive, but to give back to those who gave to me.

What do you want to do in your life?

If you don’t have an immediate answer, then it’s up to you to find that out. No, I’m not talking about wanting to be rich and famous, it;’s the reasons that I’m talking about, the reasons for fame and riches. I personally want to become a full-time author, what do you want to do?

You didn’t go to school every day for years on end to just be able to survive, no, you’re not clockwork, you’re not controlled by something. Ambition is something that is missed by the majority of people who are caught up in getting a job and surviving – those are the two basic things you need, not the things that you want. Do you want to live to help others? Live to start a family of your own? Do you want to do something with your time that you enjoy, or is beneficial to those around you?

Those are the questions you should be asking yourself, the questions that matter!

It took me a long time to realise that I was living my life by the book. I was moving like clockwork. I got up, I went to work, I came home and ate, I got paid, I repeated. It took me years to realise that I was missing the one thing that mattered: my own desires.

Once I noticed that my life was empty, a lightening bolt struck my mind. My thoughts were fighting with one another to try and figure out what to do in my spare time, and once I found it, everything changed. I had a purpose to live. It may not have mattered to anyone else just yet, but for then, and for now, it matters to me, and that’s all I care about.

 

I ask you again, what do you want to do in your life? And remember, you’re not a gear in the clock.
