I’m alright, but I feel empty, I feel like something’s missing. I had a tough time at school during exams, exam after exam, I’d go home, empty my mind and input new information in it. But after it’s all finished – I kind of miss it. I miss actually doing something or taking over a task, and going to school for the right reason. After it’s over, I actually feel cold as everyone who’s close to me is somehow far away. My bonding with people I love isn’t as strong as it usually is. I feel vulnerable but in the safest place on Earth. I watch the news and cry at innocent people suffering, who are so strong and experience the toughest of memories and I think “I could have been born there”. Why am I so lucky? I have everything yet I feel empty. A lot of things are kind of at the same time – ultimate decision making on what I’d like to study next year and I have no idea what I want to do in the future. Everyone’s telling me something different, “take English”, “maths is too hard”, and all I want to do is be like the good old days, where I just leave school, work, and rise up. But now, I have to have qualifications. But what? I have aims. I want to help people and make a positive impact on people’s lives, sounds so cliche, I know. But, I seriously, believe more than anything that I will do something highly successful. Not because I’m so self indulgent, but because I have a real, powerful drive to do so. My emotions drive me like a rocket, they enable me to succeed, be strong and ensures that nothing gets in my way. Persistence, but also stubbornness is the most powerful tool for success, the most successful people in history ‘failed’, yet their success came out of stubbornness and an inner passion to achieve. Since the World Cup is on, in my eyes, the difference between a great player and a normal player is one that can dribble the ball from one end of the pitch to the other and score a goal due to their aims being energetically aligned with their body and inner power that makes them unstoppable.
What, if anything, makes you so persistent, or stubborn that you’re so unstoppable?
