Life is Mother Nature’s most important gift. Life is the time provided to us by nature to pursue our dreams and goals and live it to the fullest. Life is an ongoing experience, where each one of us faces different situations and incidents that either make or break us.
It’s just a matter of the way you perceive things; it’s your attitude towards the experiences that make your life a joyful ride. To me the difference between a successful and unsuccessful person is whether or not they are taking action instead of giving-up.
If there is one thing I don’t want just before I die is to have regrets like most people. That is why I always recommend live your life at 180 MPH and realize your dreams and passions at a fast speed. The faster you realize them, the faster you grow, stretch yourself, improve your skills, integrate your feelings and step-up to the next level. Why stay in your comfort zone when there is so much to explore?
I am the kind of person who loves to dream and most of my life I have spent in the pursuit of those dreams. Take for example, my passion for speed. I broke the gender stereotype and became an international motorcycle racer, turning my passion into a business to inspire others to win the race of life. I always had a dream to take a road trip to the USA and visit California. I put my professional career on hold and bought a recreational vehicle and traveled across 21 states to visit my “dreamed” California.
The points that I want to make from my experiences are first, you must have a positive attitude, and second, you should be a dreamer.
A positive attitude can be achieved by having faith in yourself, believing that you can do things and that you can face anything. Your power inside yourself is what makes or breaks you. And speaking of dreams, to me life has no meaning without a dream. Dream, set goals in life, and then with the help of a positive attitude, try to find ways in which you can fulfill your dreams.
Do not wait until it is too late: start taking action NOW towards your dreams. Take care of your health and family, dress the table with a nice tablecloth for your children, wear your nicest clothes, walk on the beach, play, laugh, cry, scream, feel, give and LOVE.
I’m not talking just about material and financial rewards, but embracing feelings of your humanness. Believe me, when I say there is no joy compared to the joy that you feel when your dream is fulfilled and most importantly, the better person you became along the journey.
Lastly, share these achievements with your friends and family, especially the ones who stick with you through thick and thin and have made you a successful person.
