Next is Now by Hatim Bentahar, Morocco


So many of us chose or will choose their path out of fear. We think that what we really want is not achievable so we never dare to try. I know a lot of people who could have been so much greater than what they ever believed they could be.  So instead of taking a risk, they made the easy conservative choice, and got a job in something that they don’t love or have passion for. They made their choice only out of fear.

When we grew up they told us to see the world as it is, not as it’s supposed to be. To live our “Normal” life without embarking on any adventures; the thing they called trouble. We are supposed to study, get a job, earn money, and start a family. But life is a lot more than that, if you wake up from your daily dream and realize that you can accomplish so many tremendous things besides what you have been told you should do. Find out what you want, and act like your life depends on it. It doesn’t matter if you fail at first, stand up and try again, and again until you get there …

A lot of people think of failure as a step backward, NO! Failure is a step forward, a step towards what you want, and a step in the right direction. Every time you fail at something, you learn something, so it’s definitely not a step backward. I want you to close your eyes and look at your life right now: think about something that is important to you, something that makes your life valuable, meaningful, and vivid. Think about something that you would like to have and don’t worry about how you are going to get it, because you’ll develop a plan and you are going to make it come true.

“We don’t get what we want in life, we get what we are”. What I want you to do now is to take a step back and look at your life from a different angle, look at where are you right now, what are your strengths? And what are your weaknesses? What is it that gives your life the feeling of joy and satisfaction? “What is it that you love doing 7 days a week and brings a smile to you heart?” Find out the reason behind doing what you are doing, find the things that make you stronger, and start working on them NOW!! Don’t wait for tomorrow because NEXT IS NOW.
