First and foremost if you’re back for the third installment of Keem’s Corner I must be doing something right. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time out of your day to indulge in some of my random thoughts and philosophies. Now let’s get started.
Although I am a huge fan of the multinational super-corporation, today’s post actually isn’t about Nike as much as it their slogan:”Just Do It”. Some of the most simple, yet powerful words ever to be combined together in the English language. This post is actually inspired by the world of mediocrity and complacency that I find myself in. Every day I wake up and see the posts about being ” On my Grind” or “Chasing My Dreams” but in reality the actions very rarely match the sentiment that these words carry. Don’t get me wrong, I will never hate on a person that works a job that they hate to provide for themselves and those they care about. On the contrary I have too much respect for these people and it kills me to see people have to get through life instead of live it.
We live in the age of opportunity! We are more equipped now than we ever have been to do anything that we want and become whoever we desire to be in life. Now more than ever does it seem like the notion that you need a college degree to be successful is just and old legend. College and Universities act as a middle man. They supply you with the opportunity to attain the necessary knowledge to become skilled at a craft. But what if you could cut the middle man out entirely (and probably save yourself a lot of loans in the process). Well you can. The internet is one of the most powerful tools in the world.
There are multitudes of websites that offer free online courses. You can learn to do almost anything on YouTube. Twitter allows you to reach out to an extensive network of people you’ve never met in person, but share similar interests with. All the hard work and heavy lifting that is education and networking has essentially been done for you.
Whether it’s simply to get in shape, become a recording engineer or be a mechanic. The necessary tools are available to be successful and realize your dreams. The hardest part is starting. So you could sit here and come up with excuses why you can’t be successful and over-think yourself into a miserable existence of a life, or you could just do it.
