Never underestimate the power of having a past.
It’s relatively easy to accept it theoretically. We are all having some kind of a background. We all grew up somewhere, had some kinds of a social interactions, visited schools or something similar, got prepared for life and learned a bunch through silly mistakes. That’s just how life works. The only problem? We loose the contact to our roots. We forget where we are coming from.
I was not born an engineer. In fact, looking at the first half of my life, nobody would have believed it. I wasn’t smart, I didn’t had good grades, I did nothing particularly good. I was a late developer? Someone who just needs a couple of years? Well, maybe, but I don’t think that this is already the end of the story. Today I know that there is one thing I am particularly good in. It’s the way of motivating myself, but that is a story for another time. Today I am 27 years old. I have a master degree in engineering and life is pretty good! The only problem? We forget about were we are coming from.
It’s easy to wake up early in the morning thinking about our past, but how often do we do that? How often do we look back and analyze our progress? Exactly! We don’t! We exchange our old problems with bigger ones. We forget about important lessons in life. We pretend that the past did not really exist. Sure, sometimes that’s a good thing, but most of the time it’s not. Why? Because we get arrogant pricks. We think that we are somehow better than others. We believe that it’s our right to behave like we do. We truly believe that whatever we are chasing after is the next big thing we have to reach whatever it costs.
Well, I have not forgot where I am coming from. I try to be nice and kind to anybody and treat them with respect. You should do the same!
See you next time!
