and i’m going to fail at some things but fuck it that’s a part of growth. everyone should have a passion that has no limit, that you can’t reach the pinnacle of. that’s the great thing about bjj, but it can be applied to almost anything. when you finish a video game, it’s fun but you feel empty because you’ve reached the top and there’s nothing more to aspire to.
I had a talk with my friend and he’s inspired me so much.
I want to become the best I can be in a number of aspects of my life, unfortunately it will mean I have to also cut some things out in order to make more time for my priorities.
I want to become a better son, brother, boyfriend, student and fighter. All at once. It’s not going to be easy and I know I will end up shutting out a lot of people, but I know the people who are most important to me will support me and see where I’m coming from. Improving each of these aspects of my life will end up with benefits that crossover to other aspects.
It seems ridiculous that I wanna change so much and sometimes I think I should take ‘baby steps’ but that never worked for me. I have a greater purpose which is driving me to succeed in the things that I want to succeed in, and which influences every decision I will make.
I am going to think like a child - they are open to the possibility and focused on achieving what they want by any means necessary. They’re not bound by doubt, fear and so called ‘knowledge’. They just do, and the most important thing in life, especially in this day and age is to take action.
I’m sick of being average. I’m going to surround myself with other people who are also sick of being average. Fuck mediocrity. One of the most profound things that my friend told me was that people who say you can’t do something don’t have the credibility to say that because they haven’t achieved what you set out to achieve.
Those people are not on my level, and not on the level of those who think this way. There’s no point concerning myself with those thoughts. Fuck I’m so young and there’s so much to do but I plan to do it all. Life is so much amazing and there is so much potential for growth.
today was just basically all those inspirational quotes that you read becoming real.
Like it’s not just empty words. They’re true but cliched and overdone, and lose meaning, even though they do have a lot of meaning.
tbh if i have you on twitter i find it more personal anyway bc tumblrs are just imageboards and stuff these days
ps my twitter is @timothytams
Hi everyone just a heads up I’m unfollowing some people just so tumblr gets a bit boring so I can focus my time and effort on more important things. I don’t think people take tumblr that seriously anymore anyway but yeah just in case you get cut.
It doesn’t mean anything you’re all still my homies and i fuck wit all of you
