Search for your passion, live your life!

We are living in a world of diversity. Every person we connect with is different. Differences in character, attitude, thinking, culture, behavior, habit, likes, dislikes, etc… Human being is the only creature on earth that is able to adapt and familiarize with all these complication of life.

It’s definitely not easy as from young, we are customized to adapt to such differences. When you fight with your siblings, your parents will probably punish both and give instructions to accept each other. When we have problems with our relationship, we will most probably find books like ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’, the kind of book that provides deeper knowledge of how both sexes are different from one another and how to live together. When you argue with your peers, your superior will then instruct all to work it out and communicate. In other words, get use to it and by hook or by crook, find a way to work together!

Well, at the end of it all, we will find ways to adapt. Some people are easier to get along with, mostly because we are almost alike. There are some that are harder to get along because the differences in thinking and behavior are too vast.

But then what if you are surrounded by people who have the intention to sabotage your life? If you know people who seems very nice but with a hidden agenda that is solely for selfish reasons? Do we adapt to them or do we go against nature?

We are not the person other people wish we were. We are also who we decide to be. It’s always easy to blame others. You can spend your entire life blaming others, but your successes or failures are entirely your own responsibility. You can try to stop time, but it’s a complete waste of energy. – nipped from Aleph by Paulo Coelho.

Okay, interesting saying by Mr. Coelho. I totally agree with him as I believe what we have learn along the way is of course to create world peace. If human did not learn how to adapt to one another, we will be at World War the 1 millionth times by now!

No point focusing our energy on those people… well, because it is a waste of energy! Why not focus our energy on how to make our own life more interesting. Life is always about finding the right balance. If what you are experiencing is not in line with what you want in life, why wait? Why not find what you want and focus all your energy on it?

People, life is too short and time wait for no one.
