Beyond the Lens

7 Sep

I woke up today, feeling a bit different.
I soon realized that a day to myself was needed. I spent the day “Beyond the Lens”, as I have felt a day of self-reflection was much-needed. A day to dwell on thoughts  and ponder on ideas.

 

As the night has come faster than expected, I will leave this short and sweet.

 

The power for us to achieve things, mentally, as intellectual human beings is far greater than we can ever expect.
The ability to succeed is in us all. To find and harness this potential is what we must all strive for.

Never stop trying, stop thinking, and most of all never stop striving for greatness.

 

I will end the post with a quote that struck a spark in my mind 5 years ago. Ever since the ideas of philosophy from people around the world have been engraved in my mind.

“There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide

 

I do my best to never forget these words, that have brought me to where I am today.
