Why is Passion Important?

14th January 2017

It’s another lazy afternoon ,you know the one’s you encounter when Winter is slowly going away and the flowers are nonchalantly blooming, it’s supposed to be beautiful but spring “there’s still time my friend”, The warm yet pleasant glimmer from the star is in my bedroom, it’s just the most tranquil scene you see, As a kid when I’d be forced to take naps in the afternoons, I’d convince myself albeit falteringly that the whole world goes to take rest and so should I, and so was the present spectacle such, but in divergence  to all this my soul was in a frenzy.

“Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing”.

Hunter.S.Thompson

All my life. I haven’t really the fittest specimen that has existed on Earth, those who have known me for more than 3 years would tell you accounts with a good laugh of me not being the most majestic embodiment of our race, But that story my friend is probably for another day, So as I sat on the bed all I could think of was about reaching the gym and before you tag me as one of those ‘Gym Freaks’ let’s just read through this first, something about lifting awakens me and there’s this electrifying rush about it for me, it’s just the training you see, You’re going in everyday, you’re putting in all your energy to get some PRs, (Personal Records) you’re competing with tons of other people young at their hearts giving in their all in the room, Let’s me just state that it takes a lot of Discipline, just say the discipline a martial artist has, it’s not just an hour that you spend their, it’s a lot about the lifetime you adopt cleaning eat, being as truthful as you are to your sport to everything you do in your life.

Thus, Coming back to the main point of all this, Passion you see my friend, is not just about this one thing that you do, it eclipses in a positive way the other things that you do too, Have you ever thought what makes Cristiano Ronaldo work so hard to be in optimal conditions all over the year, is it just the money, or is there something more? what do you think made Micheal Jackson practice a single move at least a 100 times till he felt satisfied? What do you think made Muhammad Ali last 15 rounds against Joe Frazier in 1975? What do you think made Federer make a comeback at 35 years to win the Australian Open? What? It’s the passion that they have for their various Disciplines that sets them apart the passion to rise above the rest, that passion that makes you get goosebumps, that passion that gives you energy to come out on top of whatever may the situation be. That thing that burns deep inside you that makes you get up everyday to go out and achieve what you’ve always wanted is your passion. That passion we all have in us. Maybe it’s just waiting to be found, on a finishing note as The Louisville Lip said,

“Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”

How to get up and get started?

July 30th 2016

It was just another Saturday today and 4 of my alarms had gone off and needless to say I had been oblivious to them I opened my phone’s screen and it said 4:45, and I Suddenly had another one of those moments where you feel that since you didn’t make that perfect start to the day at precise 4 o’clock your day won’t be good, anyways the being lazy and telling myself take it easy it’s a Saturday I plugged in my Earphones and thought I’d just listen to some music before I get up brush up study a little and hit the gym, maybe not study I contemplated, I’ll manage tomorrow I guess I mean it’s not that I have a lot of backlog do I?

“Praying won’t do it
Hating won’t do it
Drinking won’t do it
Fighting won’t knock you out
Of my head”

The Wanted

Even though I was half dazed and in no mood to pay attention this caught my ingenuity and something told me to get up, and study a little, and trust me what a big effort it was just to write down a few liners about the day in current affairs I didn’t feel like doing anything but I did get up and I did hit the gym, Now truthfully speaking I don’t remember how that day went I don’t even remember how yesterday went but I do remember this incident and it taught me something, something very simple.

I’ve always been into making big schedules and bigger plans always telling myself that no matter what I’d make it and life would be a fairytale because well everything is supposed to be my way isn’t it so

NO

Life doesn’t work according to you and all these really big plans you make which always seem to get postponed indefinitely, there must be something we must be doing wrong, right? Well coming back to the point and why I told you about that rather palpable morning incident is that you need to seize whatever you have in the moment It doesn’t matter you wake up at 4:00 or 4:15 or 4:45 what matters is when you’re up how fast do you get to work, how fast and how dexterously you make the most of the time you have, then hit the gym or whatever you want to do,just do it!

All of us strive to achieve something in our lives I’ve seen people dream about becoming amazing, they want to look like their favourite fitness model, they want to earn like their favourite CEO, they want what others have, yet they aren’t ready to work for what they want!

Okay, here’s the thing and I want you to understand this and it’s pretty simple too, what is the One thing the One thing common between you and the world’s let’s say most successful man? (whatever your definition of success may be) The one commonality between them and between you is that both of you have 24 hours in  a day. Just 24 hours. Not months, not the years, just 24 hours, and the difference? They make the most of it and you didn’t.

Honestly this isn’t anywhere as good as one of those Youtube vids where you’re supposed to get the chills and get motivated and work but you end up watching tons of others and wasting your time, it’s just an honest write up because I believe nothing is impossible, You can do whatever you set your mind to, and I swear I’m not kidding.

So how about I end this now and you go and get what you want? Go get what you deserve just remember this though, In a day, In those 24 hours every hour you waste, you’re wasting 1/24th a chance of becoming a better person at the end of that day, waste 2 hours and poof you just lost 1/12th of what you could’ve been, so

” Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that! “

Hi there! I am Jibran, I am 19 years old, except if you’re not reading this in 2017, and if you’re reading this later I’m older. (Basic Maths Skills). So as I sat one day very tired, extremely bored with how my life was going I decided that I needed to change things a bit, I mean most of us die and I don’t know for sure, but the more I think about it I feel a lot of people on their Death beds would not have achieved what they wanted to do in life, Life is so precious yet so fragile, ask yourself have you achieved what you set out to do? I did the same and so here I am to account every thing that I’d do to make a change, to be more positive, to spread love and talk about motivation and what drives people, to also account lives of people who have achieved something, to talk about stuff that affects a lot of people and to blog about every new challenge I take up! Here’s to life and living it to be the best in what we do! (Sounds over Enthusiastic) good. (By the way I crack a lot of lame jokes) (A lot of em) ( I mean so many of em) (that if I had a penny for each of them I cracked people would start laughing at them).

Peace Out 😀
