I recently read Raymmar Tiardo's article on "7 Reasons Why You Will Never Do Anything Amazing With Your Life". If you have not already read the article you can find it here
Here are my thoughts:
Raymmar Tiardo’s article does represent a very unique perspective on what it takes to succeed in life. Becoming exceptional and leading an amazing life does take a great deal of courage. It also requires that one masters many skills that are not taught in the class room, such as the ability to dust yourself off and learn something important from failing or from being knocked down. It’s about finding the courage to think boldly and differently about how problems can be solved and opportunities can be capitalized on. It’s about standing up for what you know to be right when others think much differently. It’s about taking risks for ideas and perspectives that you believe in. It is often said that if you follow the crowd, you’re not likely to get further in life than the crowd. In my mind, the key takeaway from this article is, as the article suggests, that “the only thing holding you back from doing something truly amazing is you.” Take the constraints off, reflect on what the author is saying and meaning, incorporate what is relevant to you, and begin the process of doing something very special and amazing with your life.
