How long before I get in?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?
Where To, where do I go?
If you never try, then you'll never know.
How long do I have to climb,
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?
Look up, I look up at night,
Planets are moving at the speed of light.
Climb up, up in the trees,
every chance that you get,
is a chance you seize.
Chance vs Choice narrative
So then do we plan ? Off-course yes !!
I have been told by many wise men that at few quintessential moments of life you will have a decision to make. Either you decide and make a CHOICE or let CHANCE determine your plans. e.g. you do not marry the first girl you meet in Vegas, if you are looking for a bride. You meticulously plan through matrimonial meeting prospect females & families or you already have someone ergo you have made your choice.
Making friends, social circle, habits, marriage, career crossroads, kids, starting something etc all are moments where you would like CHOICE to supersede CHANCE. & you should !!
Failure vs Success narrative
Try vs Thinking narrative
There's no shame in playing safe, but for those who TRY you got to remember that the odds to succeed are less, if not remote. But the ones who do, make fortunes and create value. However, for those who fail post trying too benefit intellectually, philosophically & professionally with their acquired skills and lessons learnt.
