How passive can people be?



I actually doubted a lot when I started to write about this topic because I always try to find something in which I’m good at and hence advice about it. If I weren’t following my own advices in this blog, it would kind of weird to write about it, don’t you think? More directly, it would be wrong! , one can’t give advice on something that doesn’t know how it works!

Well, let’s get to the topic or you may find me rambling about everything and nothing.

Let’s start with this quote:

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them, but went out and happened to things”

Leonardo Da Vinci

So the first time I read this, I said hell yes! That’s for sure! But then it got me thinking if I was really acting upon this. This is all about being active and passive; if you get another interpretation you can always write a comment to discuss it.

So the people who stay passive and let things happen to them are not achievers? Well yes! Even for those who wait for lottery money, they have to go out there and buy the lottery ticket! And they just can’t expect to win the big prize without any ticket!

This may be a post that makes references to my previous posts but it all comes to the same things: You have to go out there and make things happen! You have to act to achieve your goals!



Sadly, if you look around, I would dare to say that maybe 80 % or more of people that surround you are really passive, they would have a 9 to 5 job then go back to their homes, do some chores or routinely stuff and then get up the next day and start the same routine. These people are like an outbreak… are we going to let them absorb our beings?



We must go out there! Act upon our dreams, on the virtues we admire on others! Our life is a countdown, how much are we going to wait?

So I actually found the solution and I hope that it will really help people out there who work in 9 to 5 jobs and desperately wait for the weekend to come, so keep in tune for my next blog! (Don’t worry it will come very soon, I decided to divide this blog so it won’t be too long !!!)
