The commitment to improvement and growth can be an arduous journey, some days are better than others. In moments of heightened euphoria, all seems glorious, then come the struggles and angst of the lows; this is the process You’ve chosen.
You carry this burden because You have a dream of what lies ahead. Your mind’s eye has pictured the destination clearly, you see it and it drives You. You understand the pain is a given, you take it on like a soldier. The pain doesn’t break You, it makes You stronger!
You know that You are meant for this! A life of Creativity, it beckons on You, You feel the need to do more, the need to get better, you understand the thrills that come with seeing your creation in its splendor, this is what You live for, You create!
Why choose this path, Why go through all this? If not this, what else is there? A life of mediocrity, no, no, no… Your place is among the stars, You know You were meant for more, do More! Create!
I do not choose to be a common man.Excerpt from Common Sense, written in 1776 by Thomas Paine
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can.
I seek opportunity … not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen,
Humbled and dulled by having the State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk,
To dream and to build. To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done.
I commit to be uncommon, I commit to a life of creativity, I am made in the likeness and image of God and in His image I have creativity. I create, I design, I am uncommon, I am the Design Maestro!!!
A.B.C. – Always be creating!
