Your career is a Marathon, not a sprint.
I read this beautiful quote somewhere, today and loved it. It goes so well with my Blog Marathon.
Writing is a never-ending journey and there is so much to write and talk about. On this note, I’ve started another Blog Marathon just after one month of the completion of my prior one.
Yesterday, when I posted the below picture on my social media accounts, I received quite a few startled reactions. Some of you asked me how will you write for the entire month? Have you planned on the topics already?
To answer them, I’d say I’ll be going with the flow. I haven’t planned any of the blogs as I’ll be trying to explore my creativity and spontaneity. And the fact that I have so much to talk about and so much more to share with you, I just started with the Blog Marathon ( as soon as the thought crept in).
As Viktor E. Frankl in his enlightening book Man’s Search For Meaning says, “If you have a why in life, the how shall automatically slide in”.
So, with the why in mind lets start with today’s blog –
Today morning I read a thought-provoking post on Jay Shetty’s (he’s an Internet personality, story teller, and motivational speaker) Instagram account. The post urged me to share it with you in today’s blog.
As the post says, eliminate these three words from your vocabulary, you’d also want to know why.
So, here are the three words and my view on why you should stop using them to make 2020 a better year for you.
Apparently and interestingly, when you eliminate these three words you’ll take your career, your aspirations and your dreams miles ahead.
So sit back and mull on the information and of course prepare yourself well ahead of 2020 to remove them off your life.
You’ve heard yourself saying, “I wish to learn Android”, or “I’m wishing to own a Kindle for a long time now”, or “Oh! I wish I could go on a solo trip”.
All of which are only in your mind. They’re yet to become a reality. And you don’t even have an estimate of when you’ll go on that dream solo trip.
This is because you’re using the word – ‘wishing.’
If you really wish to do something just do it. Chalk out a plan and just go for it.
Wanting means you desire for something and you’re willing to work for it. But when?
Simply “wanting to achieve a goal” is not enough. You need to stop procrastinating and get yourself moving to work towards your goal.
So, you need to eliminate the ‘wanting’ and give a heads start to ‘working’.
Now, will you want to read that book or will you read that book? The choice is yours.
More or less all three words are the by-products of one another. “I’m waiting for New Year to start my gym regime” – is the sentence you and I have said every year.
As I said in yesterday’s blog, why wait for the first day of the year? Why not start today?
Why would you want to wait for the perfect day or time? Stop waiting and start working towards that gold necklace you once window-shopped, that dream bullet of yours, for that perfect figure you’re longing to be in, and all that you’ve always wanted, wished and are waiting for.
Eliminating these three words will be the first effort to make 2020 a better year for you. You would achieve a bunch of goals in 2020 if you eliminate these three words from your vocabulary.
I’m ready to eliminate them from 2020. Are you?
Do let me know in the comments below (so that I know I’m not talking to a Blogospheric wall) what you think about removing these three words.
See you tomorrow with another interesting blog 🙂
