Shia LeBoeuf once said:
Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Yesterday you said tomorrow. So just do it.
Hunter S. Thompson said:
If you end up doing something you’re unhappy with, convince yourself you had to and you won’t be alone.
The second one I have to say really gets me. The fact that if you don’t actually do what you want, take risks, dare to be different – you’ll resign yourself to an excuse cultivated by the very society you once challenged. And you’ll know it.
I suppose it’s easy saying these big sweeping statement, but what if you don’t know what it is you’re trying to do? Hunter would reply it’s not about a dream job or a goal it’s about you. Being happy in you. And what that is completely depends on your perspective.
My dad said to me before he died:
There’s so many opportunities for someone like you – just do it.
I now think, with the help of Hunter and Shia, what he really meant was just do what makes you happy. The opportunities for doing that are endless.
