ARE YOU COMMITTED?

Because without commitment, nothing happens. You're not going to make it. Even the ones with the personalities you don't like. You have to be committed through the storm and the rain and the heartache and the pain and the disappointment. 

It's a commitment, it's not a feeling. Until you have had the taste of finishing you will not respect yourself. Until you follow through, until something is done come hell or tears and struggles and pain and you go through it anyway and you show up and you continue to fight on no matter the circumstances, after a while, something begins to wither inside of you.

WORK HARD IN SILENCE, 
LET YOUR SUCCESS BE YOUR NOISE.

Anytime you need something that you can't give to yourself, you're at the mercy of somebody else and when they don't come through, you got pain, and what you become is the consequences of what you didn't get. It's an urge, truth be told every champion has felt it, every president has felt it, every king has felt it, every lion has felt it, every winner has felt it, every soldier has felt it, every victorious person has felt it, the urge to quit.

Don't you give up on your dreams. I don't care if you don't have the money, and you don't have the help, and you don't have the family for it, and you don't have the background for it, and you don't have the friends for it, don't you give up on your dreams. 

Don't you do it. Don't you do it. Don't you do it!!!

It may take you twice as long. You may have to take courses and classes, you might not read as fast, you might not move as quick, you might not have as much, but don't you quit! - You do make a difference!

As weak as you are, as tired as you are, as many mistakes as you make, you do make a difference! There is something they would lose if you were not there. There is something that they would miss if you were not there. 

YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

For all my fans out there, hope this motivates you and helps you through your daily life!
Bless you, love you all!

I definitely needed this. I was feeling like quitting a few weeks ago because even my own friends were telling me I wasn't good. I thought that if even my friends are telling me this maybe I shouldn't do this anymore. But it's my dream and I love it! So I'll keep at it.

Very well-written, Zaina. Impressive, even. Motivational, inspiring, beautiful. :)

It's been inspiring watching how far you've come, and a privilege being included in your struggles. A problem shared, they say, is a problem halved.

Very beautifully said. That's the spirit. Nod
This is the very substance that has kept me going since
the day I first joined DA. And wow, it has been quite the roller coaster.
Never a dull moment I always say. ^^

There's a personal motto that I often go by, and it's "Be a protagonist, cause main characters never
settle for anything as they are, they stand out to become the difference." Hero Time Heraclesun (Hero Time)  :)

My creative writing instructor in college told me something similar, regarding protagonists:

"People want to read stories about people who say 'Yes' to things."

Hm...first time I've heard of that before. It just makes me
wonder, what are they saying yes to? :confused: rvmp

Well, it's like if you have an idea, "What if the guy went into that spooky house?" "What if that guy who always sees that woman on the bus he can't stop thinking about follows her home one day?"

There's no story if you say 'No', if you don't take the risk to do the interesting thing. No one wants to read about the guy that chooses not to go into the spooky house, that says no to telling the woman he loves the secret in his heart, says no to taking a chance.

They want to read about characters who say 'yes' to an idea. Who take chances, make mistakes, and at the end of it all, at least they have an interesting story, even if they didn't get what they originally wanted at all. Usually, by story's end, they got something else valuable, even if they are just trading hope for wisdom.

Oh ok. Now I understand. Nod 
Yeah, it would be boring to have a character play it safe all the time.
Every good story has to have a conflict and some sort of risk. :) (Smile)
Thanks so much for sharing that. Gotta love adventure, never a dull moment. ;) (Wink)
