The 54th Deadline: Targets


The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right.


“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.” – Arthur Schopenhauer

I need a target to aim for, and a proper one at that. A logical one. One that makes all of the sense in the world to set my sights on for the near future.

Without a target, there is nothing. I have no direction. I have nothing to strive for, to fight for in this daily grind.

If life is a game, hitting this target should be my next objective.

I need this for too many reasons.

I hate feeling out of touch with my own reality. I hate lacking the drive and motivation to get me through the darkness.

Where is my target? How will I hit the spot I need to shoot for and then finally accomplish something?

My aim is steady… Now is a matter of taking the shot. That target is mine!

Plenty of Chances

The thing that gets to me more than anything else is realizing how many chances I have had.

The opportunities are there, but I am not accepting those said opportunities. They present themselves, but I don’t take advantage.

It sounds stupid. It sounds ludicrous. However, it is the truth. We all have the means to escape. We see the “out” right in front of us as plain as day. But what happens?

We just don’t want to acknowledge them. For some dumb reason.

Excuses.

Excuses.

And more excuses!

I need targets!

Targets!

More targets!

Life is hard. Life is cruel. Still, life gives you hope.

As dismal as some of that hope is, it is what keeps me going. I believe in a better tomorrow for myself.

I need to take aim and finally go for it.

All or nothing.

“Hope is my catalyst.” – Nhan Pham
