Try to be deaf sometimes to the words of others !
The river was big, the river was strong. No one has ever managed to swim to the other side. It was simply too fast and too dangerous. A group of young men gathered together with the intention to try to swim to the other side.
People came from all sides of the country to watch them, to see who dared to try to conquer the river, when that was impossible. The river was big,cold, strong and fast, and no one can swim in such an environment.
People came to tell them that is impossible.
The boys jumped into the water and started swimming. People stood on the shore and they shouted “Give up“, “It is impossible“, “You can’t do it“, “No one has succeeded so far,“Come back now”.
Little by little, the words from shore are started to influence swimmers. Little by little, one by one swimmer is gave up . Except one. One swimmer was persistent enough.One swimmer was determined to achieve his intention to come to another coast. And he did it.
People were shocked.People were angry. People were in disbelief.
How he did it when it’s impossible !?
They started approaching the swimmer, to be photographed with him. They wanted to talk to him. To ask him how you did it.
But he just watched them and did not say anything. He stood and watched all these people and tried to understand what they wanted from him.
He was deaf !
Sometimes it is necessary to be deaf, and to not hear what others have to say .
How many times have you been in a situation when you have some idea, but your friends , parents, told you “If you think it’s a smart idea,why no one had thought of it before” or, “It is impossible“, “It is too risky” etc, and all this with the best intentions.
But the path to hell is paved with good intentions. The biggest risk in life is not to try anything, to be passive. The biggest risk in life is to be a silent observer of your life. That is to risky my friend. I will tell you this, you can do anything you want. Ignore others. Maybe they love you, but from that love comes an overly concerned for you. Motives can be different,jealousy, envy, who cares, don’t listen them.
Be deaf for your conscience part of the consciousness. She compares your idea with earlier behavior, and if you do not have experience with that you will feel the fear.
You are born for great deeds, you are born for great life.You are born for great ideas. Do not run away from them, accept them,create them, be brave to realize them, because my friend I am now totally sure that You Can Do It !!!
