when u want something ..u have to want it real bad!!!
A lot of people always ask me how it all started ..when the bug bit ..how i decided on this seemingly Bohemian life truth though is that the is no formula leading to the Monde you see now what i know for sure is that ive always had a deep yearn for adventure ,a curio to know ,lust to challenge previously memorized limitations ive always been a proponent of the minds capacity to protrude beyond any circumference .
growing up though im not that old ,i took up a liking in books ,hoarding books on philosophy ,and linguistics and i think it was destined that i fall inlove with stories on man who exhibit this philosophy i lived and gave every bit of my life to ,i read stories from Tim Severin The Brendan Voyage ,Dough Scott,Lydia Bradery to my favorite Alpinist Wanda Rutwiecks i fell in love with these stories i would devour these and get enthralled ,immersed in these for hours and weeks and would know a good read when i would take quite a while to emerge out of it ,but when i got the invite to join the first African youth to spent time on board a tall ship it was a far different story all of the sudden it was me .
It was time for me to take my own journey ,i remember a instance i still hold dear even to this day when we were aloft on the main mast the Royal and i was wearing just my harness and board shots and thinking of that teen who couldn’t swim just a year ago that for me confirmed greater things yet to be achieved and from than on i was driven to carve my own goals and chase them but at the time i was still blurry eyed and misty to what i wanted to pursue it happened that i stumbled to the mike horn young explorers camp and was chosen to take part on the camp in Switzerland and there i fell in love with the Alpine all over again and from there i knew what i wanted to do is climb mountains till the second coming .
After that i sat down ,researched ,was on a journey ,wrote proposals or what appeared to be to me and learned how to write proper ones on my way ,some mistakes take a month to emerge from especially for a naive kid from the townships with romantic ideals to scale the worlds top mountains ..even as i conceptualized this i could’ve said forget about this its not possible but something in me said it can be achieved, and it has been a roller coaster journey since then it has not been hunky dory as the high resolution pics my maybe evoke though it has been a worthwhile journey ..But what i took out from this is really when u want something u have to really want it real bad! you find when u pursuing something that is really dear to your heart you spend a lot of your time with yourself then the the crowd as the world we grew up in when u in Junior school we are all excited to enroll at school together and still looking forward to everything together ,at high school and College we get into all sorts of trouble together ,being rebellious and blurry eyed and misty we forsee a romantic future ahead of us where everything is all smooth because of our qualifications and yes the universe pukes u into real life which is less idealistic and a lot often grow fatigue and succumb into mundane life of following the crowd and it’s a known fact that those who follow the crowd hardly emerge beyond it .
And on the other side when u really pursuing your real passion and unplugging from the status qou you really have to convince yourself first that you really want to do this and this is what you want and face it that fact that you happiest doing this ,than after that you will have no problem with persecution ,ups and downs,and will approach everything with a more clear holistic bird eye view a that laughs at any hindrance at hand .When you want something you have to have understand Discipline and Sacrifice ,Look at a pregnant woman she dosnt just eat everything ,drink everything,she compromises certain things as she want her unborn child to be born in good health and the her life takes its choreography in complete alignment to the goal ahead ,so applies if you working towards a goal a passion ,you need to sacrifice and be disciplined and priorities in accordance to the desired goal but to truly comprehend this you have to have something you want to pursue and you have to want it real bad and then apply muscle and all your tissue and champion it to its completion.
