Season 11 of The Voice started on T.V recently.
Team Adam FTW!! It is one of my favorite reality shows for three reasons: a) awesome coaches, b) incredible talent, and c) serious inspiration.
The story of each contestant is powerful in their own way. As unique as they are, there’s a mutual theme of defying the odds. But why would they defy the odds?, you ask. Because they’re passionate about what they do.
It shows that your passion will take you places.If you like something, practice and pursue it. Keep getting better at it because there’s always room for improvement. If you fall down, get up and do it again. Don’t give up.
You probably want to make an unfulfilled dream come true. Maybe something like learning a martial art or learning to play a musical instrument or picking up a paint brush or anything, really. Dreams can’t be defined. They’re unique to each of us.
It could even be the most mundane activity like going for a morning run everyday or doing your homework. You have to start somewhere.
There are kids as young as 15 singing their hearts out. Age isn’t a bar. Whether you’re 6 or 60, it doesn’t restrict you from doing what you want. You’ll go to sleep thinking about it but when the daylight comes, you’ll have to go and fulfill your duties and responsibilities.
You sang that sentence, didn’t you? Why should you leave it for another time?
But you’re holding back, and maybe you know why or maybe you don’t. Maybe you’re afraid that it isn’t going to work out. To that I say, the least you can do is try. If you don’t try, regret will eat you up for the rest of your life. Maybe you didn’t have the opportunity earlier in life but now you do, so go for it!
Tomorrow is a mythical land where all of humanity’s tasks, dreams and plans are found. Do you really want your dreams and plans to get lost in a void that you won’t have the time to explore and retrieve later on? This could be that final push you need to go out there and make an unfulfilled dream come true. It isn’t too late! If you’re waiting for a sign, this is it.
Live life with no regrets. This life you have is too short to be wasted by thinking about “What ifs”. When you look back on your life, you should be content with it. Go out there and do whatever you’ve been putting off because you get one shot at life. Just one. You really should make the most of it.
Because the time is now.
