So, after going insane having Electric Angel on repeat for an entire day (am not joking, send help...) and doing some 30 pages or so of personal writing, I finally have some kind of thought of how to approach this one. Hopefully my point gets across enough even if you just skim this article to have you get up and move towards a goal you have set. With the year ending soon, it's never too late to jump on to go forward.

I had kind of wrote about this before, but this one is going to be a bit more focused on why you shouldn't just give up or put it off for another day. We've all had dreams of being amazing, living in spacious mansions drinking umbrella cocktails by our Olympic-sized swimming pools. You mean you haven't? What's wrong with you, go start daydreaming of being amazing and having millions of adoring fans call your name.

Before I begin, I want to thank Len-Kun for giving me a starting point to work with as I've been having trouble on how to approach this without being muddled.


"I wonder..."

These are the two words that have always been my start to whatever interest grabs my attention, often going wide and deep in my everlasting desire to know everything. Often I'll find myself going off-tangent. Growing up, we were taught that we could do anything we set our mind to yet it seems recently people have kind of stuck with a few clear options of what they want to do which are, mostly, YouTube / Streaming, Art of some kind, or Writing.

While there is nothing wrong with any of these, you begin to pigeonhole yourself into a niche that's already crowded enough as it is which makes competition so extremely fierce. To put into perspective just what kind of hobbies there are out there, let me just make a list of my interests that I've had over the years

- Video games (Design and playing)
- Engineering
- History (Egypt, Greece, European, Japan)
- Cultures
- Cooking and Baking
- Trees and Flowers
- Coins and money
- Sewing
- Painting
- Photography
- Woodworking
- Black and Goldsmithing
- Geology
- Geography
- Astronomy
- Various animals (Mongeese, foxes, wolves, cats, birds, fish)
- Graphic Design
- Drawing
- Computers and Coding
- Running
- Vehicles (Cars, tanks, trucks, motorcycles, old planes)
- Sports (Soccer, running, biking, hiking, snowboarding, motocross, F1 racing)
- Music (Except for Heavy Metals and most gospel)
- Chemistry
- Writing
- Farming and Gardening
- Physics

If you don't think you're good at anything, you just need to look around. Everyone is good at something. Besides, nobody started off being as amazing of a Skinner like Beverly on their first try. A little dedication is all it takes to become decent at whatever skill that you wish to try.

Don't think you have it in ya? How about taking a look at this amazing player who can still hold his own against pros


People are amazing even if they don't realize it. You will fall, you will fail, and you will lose, keep up a decent amount of confidence to try and improve to see results in a matter of time!

Do Something

<Insert Shia LeBouf screaming> Whether you think what you do is good or bad, it's better to have tried and learn something from it. Even age-old masters are constantly learning on sharpened skills long after they've left studies behind. It's suprising just how much you miss whenever you pass over your old work only to have someone else point out your flaws.

It cannot be stressed enough that if you leave your tools to rust, you're going to find yourself wondering for the olden days. Treat each day as a new experience while taking your past with. Don't yearn what you had done better, find things that you cam do differently.

One of the lessons I learned from a book long before a screaming, sweaty man yelled into Camera was "strive to sit down and write every day, even if it's not good." The book in question is Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott which has some very good advice that isn't related to writing. Highly recommended if you find yourself stuck with nowhere to go.

Always a Team Effort

Let's just say you lack any motivation to work on something or just are tired. Why not encourage others forward? My time has long since past where I was in my prime on this site yet that hasn't stopped me from giving others a helpful push if you've been noticing my feed.

Positivity, just like it's brother Negativity, reacts like a Domino Effectonly so much stronger. The brain naturally wants to progress and not be taken down, dragging others with it. Everyone has the power to push each other to greatness, we are a community, not individuals which has become the common mindset even before I had left to follow my other obsessions.

Many a year I've held out my hand to lead others along the way and others should give it a try. Who knows, maybe sharing an experience will get you going as well. We all have goals, it's time to realize them together.

Annnd dead...I might rewrite this, but after five tries this is good enough for me. Back to binging on vocaloids.

This is honestly really inspirational. Reading this has reminded me about the importance of positivity (and that I need to stop being so pessimistic), so thank you! ^^

You're very welcome and hearing you say that definitely has made it worth the struggle.
