How many of us have had plans to learn to play the piano or guitar, but haven't even made the first move after even a decade or more? We are full of excuses. It's crazy how we find time for things that don't bring us true joy or happiness, but keep resisting what we truly desire.
We're too busy with college work. Now we're too wrapped up in our jobs. We'll learn once the kids grow up and leave the house. Maybe after we retire we can learn it really fast with all our free time... Or will we say "Well, why should I even bother at this point?"
After you watch this video, you're going to get fired up and start hustling immediately. So whatever it is, get ready to make a legitimate resolution. Get past the hurdle of starting and you'll find it's a piece of cake. But get motivated first by Otu's video, below.
And people still have excuses for not attaining their goals and dreams.
This gentleman Otu was born with what others call a birth defect, but he calls a birth enhancement. AKA he's not a whiney baby. He gets things done with no excuses. Sometimes having unfortunate cards dealt to us in our hand that we call life is really a call to action. It's a challenge that beckons us to become strong willed and persistent. Without these challenges, we'd likely not become great people. We'd be weak and lazy and full of excuses. Anyone who has achieved greatness has faced obstacles in their life. It's a part of the deal.
"Oh, my hand can't use the fret board. I guess I'll teach myself to play the guitar upside down."
He plays more instruments than Prince and plays them well. While the rest of us with lesser excuses haven't even gotten started. Before you guys jump down my throat for going too hard at everyone, I'm just as guilty. There are a lot of goals I've wanted to achieve that keep taking a back seat to my main goals. As long as we are driving towards our primary goal, then we're doing well. But we can't delude ourselves either, especially if we're misusing our time (guilty as charged).
On top of all of this, he's even a friggin' game designer, novelist, and can solve a Rubik's Cube in under a minute. I can't even manage to get out of bed on time in the morning.
So what's it going to be, you knuckleheads? Are you going to learn to play guitar like you said you would five years ago? Are you going to start hiking the Appalachian Trail while losing that weight you're sick of carrying around? I have a video game I've been designing that's around 25% done, but the art is such a pain in the butt I've just left it alone for about six months now. That's ridiculous. I commit to chipping away at it a little bit each night until I'm past this hurdle, then it'll be fun again.
